Dio, UK tour, November 2009

One of the great voices of heavy rock music returns to the UK this autumn as Dio brings his Greatest Hits tour over here, in particular to Bristol Academy on Monday 30th November (rescheduled from Sunday 29th)

At 67 years of age, Ronnie James Dio (wiki) is one of the genre's most enduring frontmen, with a wonderful voice complementing the music of Elf, Rainbow and Black Sabbath.

His band Dio (official, wiki) had some great moments in the 1980s, with the seminal debut album Holy Diver being the defining moment.

More recently, he has been back working with Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler in Black Sabbath project "Heaven and Hell"

Catch him while you can. He really is a true rock great.
