According to this music blog, Kyo, the vocalist of Dir en Grey was hospitalized after their live at Shinkiba Studio Coast on May 16th.

He was complaining of a high fever and was immediately rushed to the hospital. There, he was diagnosed with tonsillitis and is still under medical observation.


Dir En Grey then updated their official FB with this message:


Following a medical examination after feeling sick and experiencing high fever, Kyo (Voice) has been diagnosed with tonsillitis.


Despite Kyo being adamant about carrying out the ”TOUR2013 TABULA RASA -” show scheduled on 24.05.2013 at Shibuya Public Hall, a special LIVE show for those who purchased the limited order only MINI ALBUM “THE UNRAVELING”, he has been hospitalized for further treatment and rest.


At this time, the show is scheduled to take place as planned, however, under unavoidable circumstances we will make an announcement over our official website.


We apologize for all inconveniences and worry we have caused all fans and affiliates and thank you for your continuous encouragement and support.

Damn, how many times has this guy been in the same situation? :/

I've heard this a couple of times already... the last time was last year I think.


Anyway, hope he recovers soon

I'm not too worried about Kyo because this happens quite often with him. He has had much worse happen to him but he always seems to bounce back and recover quickly. Feel better Kyo!

Wishing him a speedy recovery but I feel sorry for the fans, this shit happens too often and the band has to lose some tour dates in the process.

The pic used is really really sexy ugh


Kyo baby  :sad:  Take your time and get well rested!

Take care of his vocal chords too.



And though he bounces back- still can't help but feel concern.
