KING DIAMOND Rehearsals in Denmark July 2014

I was supposed to hang out w the KD people in Tokyo late 2013 but because of typhoons & stuff happened, all their gear got stucked in a Chinese harbour and never made it to Japan. So last minute cancelled trip for them:/ I was already in Japan by that time so made the best of it (with typhoon and all;)) sightseeing all over Tokyo & Yokohama, meeting up w friends and going to some gigs. So quite good trip overall.

Anyways I finally got to meet up with all of the KD people at the rehearsals for the Summer tour 2014. Kinda made up for Tokyo
Some really nice days in Denmark, 2 rehearsals a day, fun company, truly professional crew and the most awesome venue rented for the rehearsals.
In last minute there was the incident involving the former bass player and Pontus E. was asked to step in. He accepted, took the plane from Sweden the next day, rehearsed 14 songs within 24 hrs or so and played like he always been in the band. A hero!
The coffin from the 80´s was tried out the first time since…the 80´s. This time Grandma was the one to be burned. She wasn´t too happy about it xD
The first gig on the tour was in Stockholm and they did some European gigs & festivals before a tour in US later in the year.
