The “Ronnie James Dio” Hologram Tour Is Announced

Hey there readers, so do you remember a post that we ran last year at around this time? It was from the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany and what was an added attraction for the fans over there was the presentation of the Ronnie James Dio hologram. It performed songs with the guys in Dio Disciples and if you missed that post or the clip itself just click HERE to be more up to speed. Fast forward to where we are now, and the company that created this fantastical spectacle have just announced the first dates on a world tour that will feature this hologram. Read on to the press release down below.

The Press Release:
Live music’s premier hologram production company Eyellusion today revealed initial dates for “Dio Returns: The World Tour”, featuring a hologram of Ronnie James Dio reunited with the late rock star’s former bandmates from the DIO band. The tour will make more than eighty stops around the globe, kicking off in Helsinki, Finland on November 30. It marks the first tour of its kind, breaking new ground just as Dio did throughout an accomplished career as a lead singer and songwriter in defining bands such as RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH and DIO.

The “Dio Returns” tour will also make stops throughout Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Paraguay, United Kingdom, Venezuela and other countries, with dates to be announced. The tour is expected to come to the United States in spring 2018 and play festivals globally during the summer.

The Ronnie James Dio hologram will perform for the majority of the show, treating fans to an alternating set list that will feature songs such as “Holy Diver”, “Rainbow In The Dark”, “We Rock”, “King Of Rock And Roll”, BLACK SABBATH’s “Neon Knights” and “Heaven And Hell” and RAINBOW’s “Man On The Silver Mountain” and more.
