Ronnie James Dio to tour in hologram form
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Images of explosions, fire and dragons stream across a massive digital screen set behind a band playing the opening chords of Dio's "King of Rock and Roll."
Late heavy metal icon Ronnie James Dio is set to tour again in hologram form.
Rolling Stone reports the "Dio Returns" world tour kicks off in Helsinki on Nov. 30 and comes to the U.S. in the spring. Dio's widow, Wendy, says the hologram "gives the fans that saw Ronnie perform an opportunity to see him again and new fans that never got to see him a chance to see him for the first time."
Dio died of stomach cancer in 2010 at the age of 67.
Ozzy Osbourne is firm: This is really, truly and definitively the final tour for Black Sabbath.
"There is not going to be another Black Sabbath tour. It really is 'The End,'" Mr. Osbourne said in a statement provided to The Washington Times ahead of the band's performance Sunday at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, as part of the so-named tour.
