The DOOMpostor Strikes Again, This Time In London

doomposter The DOOMpostor Strikes Again, This Time In LondonIn some unfortunate news from our friends on the other side of the pond, it appears that DOOM has sent out another one of his impostors to a show this past weekend in London. The DJs of Livin’ Proof intended on putting on an event called Livin’ DOOM that featured, as you might expect, a headlining appearance from the masked villain. But to their (and the fans’) dismay, he never showed up. Instead, the dude you can see above appeared at the venue and…yeah.

Livin’ Proof obviously wasn’t too happy about it and sent out the following message about the fiasco. Read it below.

To everyone who came down to our Livin’ DOOM event on Saturday and are questioning whether that was the real DOOM – we are in the same position as you. We had a legitimate contracted gig from his official booking agent and were in contact throughout the booking process with his US management, and label. We were even talking and working with the promoters of DOOM’s forthcoming London live shows in October and November.

As far as we were concerned, the real DOOM was going to appear… we received news from DOOM’s management on the morning of the gig that DOOM wanted more money or he would not show up. This show was done and intended as a very special and intimate show which was not about making money but putting on an incredible party in a very small capacity venue. As we wanted the show to go ahead and was left to ransom to this extortionate request, we agreed this even though this was a breach of our agreed contract. In hindsight, we should have cancelled the show then and there…

At 9.30pm after we had open the doors, we were told by management that he would appear but would not DJ and was just going to sign autographs. We said this was unacceptable as we had agreed and paid for a DJ set… 10 minutes later we received a call saying that he would DJ… Or that’s what we were led to believe.

As many of the people in the venue noticed, there is a very strong possibility the person that was finally sent down was not DOOM himself.

Doing this show has taught us a lot about how some artists operate and how they feel they can treat others and, most importantly, their fans. As fans of DOOM ourselves, this has left a very sour taste in our mouth.

Anyone who has been to Livin’ Proof parties always know that we do our utmost to provide the best quality show and we are so sorry for anyone who came down and were disappointed by the DJ set from the artist supposedly meant to be DOOM.

We will do our utmost to make this up to anyone who purchased a ticket for this event. We paid the fee upfront to Daniel Dumile’s bank account and have the receipts to prove this. We will be seeking legal advice and are doing our best to get his show fee refunded from DOOM and his management and will then take suitable steps after this action.

All the best,
Livin’ Proof Crew.

    ignorance is bliss, If you didn’t know it wasn’t him you wouldn’t think it wasn’t.

    NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS, YOU ALL STILL CHECK FOR DOOM WHENEVER HIS NAME IS MENTIONED. HE HAS DONE THIS AND OTHER SIMILAR ACTS MANY TIMES IN THE PAST. WHAT MADE ANYONE THINK THAT THIS TIME WOULD BE DIFFERENT? THE PROMOTERS STILL WENT AHEAD WITH THE ACT AND ADVERTISED DOOM SO THEY BEAR AS MUCH FAULT AS DOOM SUPPOSEDLY. JJ FOR GUV’NOR.

    A lot of people don’t really get how he works. Dumile considers DOOM to be a character, not an alias. It’s similar to a musical; you don’t go expecting to see the actor who plays Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, you expect to see Jean Valjean. Furthermore, you can’t say for certain that it was Dumile who requested more money and not just his manager.

    I’m not really trying to come to Dumile’s defense, just straighten things out a bit. I mean, even if Dumile had nothing to do with the demand for additional money, he’s still at fault for allowing a manager like that to speak for him.
