Coming In Hot, Diamante Brings The Blue Balls Holiday Tour To Stubbs
In the Spanish language, Diamante means diamond and there is no more suitable representation for the artist that bears the name. Making big waves with her 2017 single “Haunted” off her debut album Coming In Hot, Diamante is a breath of fresh air with songs that rock you to the heart but also hit you straight in the feels.
Her demeanor on stage sparkles more luminous than any gem and the spirit she brings will have you captivated in no time. Fresh off the heels of spring and summer tour run with hard rock titans Breaking Benjamin, Diamante has started on her first-ever headlining tour of her own. The Blue Balls Holiday Tour provides the perfect opportunity to see what Diamante is all about and last Thursday evening fans at Stubbs got their opportunity to catch a great show.
One by one the members of Diamante’s band took their necessary places on stage as the crowd applauded in recognition. As Diamante entered from the amphitheater entrance and took her spot front and center. The show started with “Kind of Love.” Diamante sounded magnificent as her vocals moved across the venue. Her sapphire sky-blue hair flowing all around her from the fan that was set up. She took a few seconds to talk about her half-Mexican, half-Italian heritage before introducing the song that simply signifies I’m sorry, “Lo Siento.” It was breathtakingly lovely and a highlight of the night. After that, things went in the total opposite route. She came with a frenzied mixture of rock classics including “Iron Man,” “Rock and Roll,” and “Crazy Train.”
The fans went insane, banging their heads, and rocking out while Diamante took the time to present each member of her band. Delivering them the accolades they so greatly earned. In an attempt to blow the roof off the house, “Coming In Hot” was up next. Although I’m pretty sure the roof structurally endured, it was obvious that Diamante had made a lasting mark on the souls of fans that evening. Diamante continued to shred the stage with her hit Black Heart that left a lasting imprint to everyone in attendance.
During the last few years, Diamante has had the chance to work with some of the most passionate rock artists around. Giving her knock-out vocals to songs by All That Remains and the song “Hear Me Now” by Bad Wolves which she chose to play for us in cosmic fashion. Although no one wanted the evening to come to a close, the show was nearly over but not before locking it out in perfectly with a rowdy version of “War Cry” which had the fans on their feet and hands in the air.
After the show, Diamante and her band came out to meet every fan that stayed. She posed for photos and taking the time to chat with everyone. Truly showing that she shines just as vividly on the inside. If you ever get the chance to see Diamante in concert, you must go. This is an emotionally energy charge performance that will leave you fulfilled by the end of the night.
