04.05.2009 Kyoto – KBS Hall
According to the fans that went to the Kyoto, KBS Hall show, Kyo's voice was extremely strained. He was not even able to sing mid-range parts. And during Agitated Screams of Maggots, he cut his mouth (on purpose). It is assumed he was frustrated with his voice because during his solo, it is reported, that he said, "Will you all love me even with this voice? Please love me even with this voice." He also thanked the audience at the end of the show.
Today, Dir en grey vocalist Kyo has received the results of his throat condition. He was diagnosed with Chorditis [The inflammation of the vocal chords.] and Edema of the larynx. [Abnormal accumulation of fluid beneath the skin/ or cells of tissue]. Because of this, and with deep regret, a small part of Dir en grey's "Tour 09 Feast of V Senses" (04.07 Zepp Sendai, 04.08 Zepp Sendai, and 04.10 Zepp Sapporo) will be delayed (but not canceled!).

Yeash, I figured something like this would happen at one point. I've been hearing that he's been having problems from the fans. It's hard with the kind of vocals that he is famous for, I don't blame him. I hope he takes it easy and gets better.
What is this, facebook?
NOOOO! NOTTT KYOOOO!
So wrong it's right! =]
