MAEVE QUIGLEY ON THE STARS SET TO SHINE AT AWARDS: Shock in store for Kings' Joey.

Byline: MAEVE QUIGLEY

THE Future Kings Of Spain nearly didn't make it back from Japan to attend tomorrow night's awards.

The band, who have been nominated in two categories - for Best Irish Band and Best Newcomers - had a shocking experience when they were in the Orient to play the Sonicmania Festival alongside Korn and Evanescence.

But frontman Joey Wilson was almost electrocuted at a secret gig for music industry heads. A spokesman said: "The guys were playing a secret gig in Tokyo for industry bodies but before they had even started Joey got an electric shock from the sound system.

"It was nerve-wracking enough for them but the near electrocution was not exactly the desired start to the show."

Happily Joey recovered just in time to play in front of 20,000 adoring fans in Osaka.
