KING DIAMOND's manager, Ole Bang, has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"Regretfully, and due to circumstances beyond our control, there will be a change of date and venue in Athens, Greece, which also caused us to cancel the show in Treviso, Italy. New date for Athens is: Monday, May 22. Venue: Gagarin 205. The show in Treviso, New Age club, scheduled for May 24 is cancelled. First KING DIAMOND show in Italy will be in Firenze-Prato, hereafter Milano and then Reggio Emilia as previously announced. We apologise for the inconvenience, and to the fans who will not be able to travel to a show."
