After four full-length albums and thirteen years together, Belgium’s Diablo Blvd have decided to call it quits. The group has had a successful run as they’ve embarked on headlining tours, supported acts including Machine Head and Epica, and also made an appearance at 70,000 Tons of Metal. The band revealed their final show will be held on December 10th at the Ancienne Belgique in Belgium.

Diablo Blvd shared the following statement:

To all of you reading this message we will start by announcing our first headline show ever at the legendary Ancienne Belgique on the 10th of December 2018. For some reason we never played the AB before so we’re absolutely thrilled to finally head over to one of Belgium’s most beautiful venues.

No doubt this will be a night to remember especially because it will also be our last show ever. Yes, you’re reading this right: the DB is calling it a day.

We can imagine this might come as a surprise to many of you. Even for us it feels unreal knowing that we are about to close a very important chapter in our lives. In the last 13 years we’ve seen a lot of things come and go but we always did it our way. There’s no negativity here, there’s only love.

We thank you all for your undying support and for giving us the time of our lives. We hereby invite you all to the Ancienne Belgique on the 10th of December for the final curtain. Ticket presale will start tomorrow (Friday 29th of June at 11AM) via Diablo BLVD | Ancienne Belgique

Regarding all the booked summer shows: we cannot wait to continue our festival run and enjoy every last second of it. Looking forward to see you all out there.


Alex, Andries, Kris, Tim & Jan”
