King King have been forced to cancel a number of their November UK tour dates, rescheduling for the new year, resulting from a vocal cord condition suffered by lead singer and guitarist Alan Nimmo,
News of King King having to reschedule comes just as their live album King King Live went to #1 in Amazon’s Best Sellers Blues Rock Chart, and just as the radio remix of their new single ‘Waking Up’ is about to be released.
Nimmo had announced he was going into hospital for a “wee” throat condition on the final night of their spring tour at Birmingham Town Hall, and it now transpires recovery has not been as prompt as expected.
“I’ve seen my ENT specialist,” said Nimmo. “He put a camera down my throat to look at what condition my vocal cords were in. Unfortunately, there’s still a good bit of inflammation and redness. I’ve been working with a vocal coach to build strength and stamina to aid my recovery.
“We will be re-scheduling most of the dates on the UK tour to January, February and March, however, we will commit to the remaining four shows on the November UK tour, beginning at Edinburgh’s Queen’s Hall (25 November), continuing through to the Live Rooms in Chester (26 November), The Grand Venue in Clitheroe (27 November) and wrapping up in London at Islington Assembly Hall (29 November).”
