Dio Returns Tour Comes To Myth Live On June 15


The Ronnie James Dio hologram will perform live alongside classic Dio members and special guest vocalists this summer when the Dio Returns tour hits cities across the country. Locally, Dio Returns will be making an appearance at the Myth on Saturday, June 15.

First unveiled at Wacken Open Air 2016, the iridescent likeness of the late vocalist who variously fronted Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell and his namesake act, Dio, is the creation of hologram production outfit Eyellusion. The company’s CEO, Jeff Pezzuti, touted the marvel of the Dio hologram in a press release.

“Ronnie James Dio was not only known for his amazing vocals, but also his incredible stage shows,” the Eyellusion head said. “This show is a must see for all fans of Ronnie, new and old. The new stage production we have created plus the brand new Ronnie James Dio hologram have to be seen to be believed.”

On the special tour, Dio Disciples vocalists Tim “Ripper” Owens and Oni Logan will be backed by guitarist Craig Goldy, drummer Simon Wright, keyboardist Scott Warren and bassist Bjorn Englen, instrumentalists who were members of Dio’s final lineup before the singer’s death in 2010, save the latter.

Doors open at 7:00 pm and the show starts at 8:00 pm with special guests Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate.

Tickets are available HERE.
