King Diamond have been doing their thing since 1985 and are world-renowned for their theatrical live show rivaled only by the likes of rock and royalty such as Alice Cooper or KISS. Lead by their eponymous frontman, the Danish five piece band put as much effort into their production as they do into their music. With a new album and visual concept called The Institute, the band rolled through Worcester on Friday night (November 8), where they played to a jam-packed Palladium crowd who made the place feel like a vintage rock concert, complete with all the sights, sounds, and smells you’d expect. We made the trip out west to capture just a handful of the incredible visuals you can expect to see at a King Diamond show. Swipe through John Hutchings’ gallery below.
