Dio Hologram U.S. Tour Dates Announced
The revamped version of the Ronnie James Dio hologram will appear on a U.S. tour beginning on May 21 and running until June 29.
Tickets go on sale April 12 at 10AM local time. You can see the full list of concerts below.
The stage show will feature the projection of the late singer alongside a live band that includes former Dio members Craig Goldie, Simon Wright and Scott Warren. Former Judas Priest singer Tim “Ripper” Owens and Lynch Mob vocalist Oni Logan will also appear.
“This 90-minute celebration of Ronnie James Dio will include all of the great fan favorites – such as ‘Holy Diver.’ ‘King of Rock N' Roll’ and ‘We Rock’ – taking fans on a Dio journey from Rainbow to Black Sabbath, to his own Dio material with the legend himself,” a statement from production company Eyellusion reads.
“Looking forward to hitting the road with this incredible piece of technology and celebrating Ronnie and his timeless music again with his friends and fans," drummer Wright added.
The new version of the Dio hologram was revealed in a teaser video last month. The projection, which first appeared on stages in Europe in 2016, was redeveloped after Dio's widow Wendy said she wanted improvements made before it was presented to American audiences.
