Dio live at Donington artwork revealed

Niji Entertainment Group, the music label formed by the late Ronnie James Dio and his wife/manager Wendy, will release ‘Dio At Donington UK: Live 1983 And 1987’, which collects two vintage performances by Dio’s solo group, as a double-disc set on 9th November. The ’83 performance, Wendy explains, “was the first appearance in the UK of the Dio band — it’s very energetic.” Four years later, the band came with a different lineup and “a lot more songs under their belt.” The first disc represents “a new, young band coming out of the box,” says Wendy, “and then the [second disc] is a more seasoned band.”

    Should be a rockin’ set. Dio has been one of my favorite groups, I remember the late Ronnie James Dio when he was with Elf; shows how old I am. Anyway, I still find it hard to wrap my head around he’s gone, but not forgotten and this set represents the power of the man, the music, and all that was Dio. Bless him, a “horn” salute to him, where he’s at in the great beyond. Ride the Rainbow Ronnie.
