Last Live Footage Of Dio Being Released
Although nobody knew it, Heaven & Hell’s appearance at the Wacken festival in Germany during July of 200 was to be the last time a Ronnie James Dio live performance would be caught on film (as I’m sure you all know, Ronnie died earlier this year from stomach cancer). The festival appearance was part of Heaven & Hell’s The Devil You Know tour.
Eagle records is to release a CD/DVD featuring a recording of that performance. The release will be called Neon Nights: 30 Years of Heaven & Hell and the track listing is as follows:
- The Mob Rules
- Children of the Sea
- Bible Black
- Time Machine
- Falling Off the Edge of the World
- Follow The Tears
- Die Young
- Heaven and Hell
- Encore: Country Girl
- Neon Knights
If you take a look at the video taster below (the encore: Neon Nights with a little bit of Country Girl as an intro) you’ll see that the band were on fantastic form. You’ll also see that the performance has been brilliantly recorded (turn it up – it’s rare to get such great sound on YouTube).
Neon Nights: 30 Years Of Heaven & Hell is to be released on November 16th.
I know what’s going in my Christmas stocking.
