SUH-WEEEEET: FOOTAGE FROM KING DIAMOND’S FIRST LIVE PERFORMANCE SINCE UNDERGOING TRIPLE BYPASS OPEN HEART SURGERY
Following triple bypass open heart surgery in 2010, King Diamond understandably had to take a break from doing what he was born to do — that is, being one of the best vocalists in the history of metal. But to the delight of fans everywhere (including this one!), last week The King announced his imminent return to stage, with two appearances at European festivals scheduled for this summer.
But, hey, guess what? Turns out we won’t hafta wait ’til June for His Majesty’s return — ’cause he gave a surprise performance at the fifth annual Nomad Recording Showcase Throwdown this past Friday night. And while the quality of the resulting cell phone footage isn’t that great, it is good enough to hear that King Diamond’s voice is as strong as ever, open heart surgery be damned. Check it out:
More footage after the jump!
Dear King Diamond: please come play the rest of America soon, okay? Thanks!
