DIAMOND HEAD Performs In Brooklyn; Video Available

NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) legends DIAMOND HEAD performed last night (Friday, April 12) at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, New York. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.

DIAMOND HEAD will make two trips to North America this year. The first is taking place right now and covers the East Coast, Canada, and the Midwest. The second leg of the band's U.S. tour will happen in October and will include dates on the West Coast and in the South.

For the first time in its 37-year history, DIAMOND HEAD made its way stateside for a U.S. tour in the summer of 2011.

DIAMOND HEAD's only previous U.S. appearance was at the Metal Meltdown IV festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey in 2002 for a sold-out show with fellow British stalwarts SAXON and WITCHFYNDE. Now, for the first time ever, DIAMOND HEAD's U.S. fans got the opportunity to see the band perform live.

The tour kicked off in Seattle on August 15, 2011 and concluded in New York City on September 1, 20111.

DIAMOND HEAD's first-ever appearance with the "Big Four" (METALLICA, SLAYER, ANTHRAX and MEGADETH), the artists on whom they had a major influence, at the Sonisphere festivals in the U.K. and France, was followed by their first performances in Canada, playing with MOTÖRHEAD, and MEGADETH at the Heavy TO festival in Toronto, along with an appearance with GIRLSCHOOL, MOTÖRHEAD and KISS, at the Heavy MTL festival in Montreal.
