King Diamond Brazilian Concert: 06/25/2017
« on: June 28, 2017, 07:22:29 AM »
Hello everyone,

Since yesterday I'm thinking on what I could write about the King Diamond concert in Brazil last weekend, but I need to confess that the words are missing to describe what I'm feeling and what happened here in Brazil!;

I want to talk not only about the concert, because most of us already had the opportunity to experience that at least one time. But also talk about the commotion created around the event!
Since the band started to arrive in Brazil, the fans finally understood that - after 21 years - King Diamond band would REALLY play in Brazil and the groups and social medias exploded with lots of information about the Festival + about the bands (including dozens of interviews).

Every day since last Thursday I'm listening friends and people that I never heard before, telling about their stories on how was the experience to meet the band. Most of them never had the opportunity to see they playing live, and in fact great part of them even wasn't born in 1996 (year of the 1st KD gig here).... What to say about those ones (like me) who was on the King Diamond concerts in 96 or even on the Mercyful Fate ones (96, 98 and 99)? It were unbeliavable saw people singing too loud and tearing with emotion just for having a chance to see King Diamond playing once.  :D

What to say about Kim, Livia, Andy, Mike, Pontus, Jodi, Hel Pyre...? The way that they received each fan that went to the hotel, to the airport, when meet on the streets, at the venue before and after the show.... It was completely amazing..... We are still in shock about everything and specially how respectfull with the fans they are (and I hope they could felt the same by our side).

In resume: Guys, thank you so much for everything, for each song played, each moment on our fan life that you (again) just wrote a new magic page, and if King Diamond had a legion of  fans in Brazil after this Sunday I have no idea which adjective uses to classify.... This was my ninth time seeing King Diamond/Mercyful Fate playing live, and certainly this one was the most fucking amazing time!!  :gah:  \m/

I was just wondering if that was really Livia on backing vocals, because she seemed different to me (only watched on Youtube)! So, was that really Hel Pyre from Afterblood? What happened?

The concert was amazing. I don't have the words to describe it.
15 years waiting for a single night .. and it was worth it.

also, I met the band at the hotel and everyone was so kind and cool to us.

I still don't know what to write here, so I will just say thank you to the band and to the fans .. it was perfect :king:

Yes was really Hel Pyre from AfterBlood on backing vocals.
Probably because Livia is taking care of little Byron. According with her, soon she will be back!  \m/ :gah:

Yep, Hel Pyre from Afterblood is substituting for me on backing vocals for a few shows, until I can get back on stage (really missing it!).
King and I had a baby, named Byron, and I am taking care of him right now and cannot perform just yet. :)

Rest assured, everything is all good here, and I'll be back soon! :)

 :o Wait... Wait a second... Wait a second!!! Do you mean that the little Byron is King and Livia's baby??? Their own son??? Oh my goodness!!! I didn't imagine that!!! :icon_biggrin: :icon_biggrin: :icon_biggrin: What a news!!! Sorry Livia if I didn't congratulated before! I didn't get it! When you said "King and I had a baby" I got "We had a baby to take care of that somene gave to us"! :-[

Man, i canĀ“t describe how i feel to see Kind Diamond play for my first time.
I was expected this for a far too long, and all the time when i saw a interview and King promisses of a great concert, this grow more and more.
And what happen that night was great! The band performance, perfect felling and King kick Ass singing.
So, like King said, that we will never forget that day, he was right for sure.
Just perfect moments!! :king: :king: :king:

Many congratulations! My son turns one next week.  Just over one year ago, I was hoping that he wouldn't arrive early and make me miss the Abigail show in London  :icon_lol:
