Dio- Holy Diver Live BluRay Trailer


The grand wizard of classic rock. A poet of hope for the downtrodden. The single most important vocal technician in the history of heavy metal. All of these accolades have been garlanded upon the royal roar known as Ronnie James Dio.

He was born on July 10, 1942 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and raised in upstate New York and once said that he would have preferred playing for the ... Read more in Amazon's Dio Store

Editorial Reviews

'Dio at Donington UK: Live 1983 & 1987' features 2 CD s in a deluxe digipack with a booklet filed with rare photos from both concerts and includes both All Access Backstage Laminates from 1983 and 1987! 1983 was the first time Dio plated in the UK and their first show just happened to be the legendary Donington show! You get a taste of two different tours, the 'Holy Diver' tour from 1983 and the 'Dream Evil' tour from 1987!

5.0 out of 5 stars His Music Will Live On Forever November 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Ronnie James Dio left a big empty hole in metal music when he passed away on May 16th 2010. Dio had quite a unique voice, it was operatic, powerful and quite impressive and unlike some singers he had this great voice right until his death. It's hard to describe just what Dio was and represented, he was a kind and generous man who cared about his fans, the metal movement and his music. He gave a lot to metal including the famous « Devil Horns » and to say that he was a huge influence on this genre of music would be an understatement. Ronnie was a man of great talent and was truly the voice of metal (at least one of the most important and powerful ones), he left us excellent music from his solo career and all the bands he's been in. I always had huge respect for Dio and I think that this live two-discs collection « At Donnington UK : Live 1983 & 1987 » is a testament of not only his talent but of just how passionate he was about music.

The first disc is Dio's 1983 performance introducing his band to Donnington, Dio was know for his work with other bands such as Elf, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow and Black Sabbath (later Heaven & Hell) but this was his solo debut. The lineup for this disc is : Dio (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitars), Jimmy Bain (bass), Vinny Appice (drums) and Claude Schnell (keyboards), this often considered the best era of the band and rightfully so. Children of the Sea is fantastic, Dio's delivery of the song is wonderful.Straight Trough The Heart is impressive, the long version of Heaven & Hell is great and Holy Diver is amazing, this is a terrific live version. They also included drum and guitar solos tracks which is nice for those who are fans of all that stuff, I don't think it's particularly great but it's cool to have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great to hear early Dio again but... November 10, 2010
By wiredog
Format:Audio CD
I've always loved Ronnie James Dio. His contributions to whatever project he was involved with pretty much guaranteed excellence at the highest level. My only problem with these disc's and I emphasis it's my problem, is that I'm not a fan of medley's at all and these discs are full of them. I'm the guy who would rather hear half of the songs in their entirety than little samples of all of them. The track listing is deceiving as some of these tracks are only a minute or two as part of a medley. At one point he sings a verse from Temple of the King (one of my favorites from Rainbow's first album) but that's it; just a little tease.

I cannot say anything bad about RJD as he will always be one of my favorites. Listening to these does bring back the power of those early Dio albums and the impression they left on me as a young metalhead back then. Great stuff for sure, I'm just nitpicking.

4.0 out of 5 stars "MONSTER-SLAYER" - Dio Delivers at Donington March 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
It's been close to a year since the iconic, majestic, soaring and commanding voice that was the beacon for all things Heavy Metal departed this earthly realm to exist forevermore amongst the magical rainbows of which he so often sang. When Ronnie James Dio succumbed to the most-dreaded of earthly disease last May, it seemed so unfair -and impossible really- that the Man on The Silver Mountain could be taken from us in such an inconceivable manner.

Although the man and the legend may be gone, his legacy lives forever through his astonishing musical catalog - as formidable and revered a catalog if ever there was one.

From his legendary stint fronting Ritchie Blackmore's RAINBOW in the 1970's, to his match-made-in-heaven collaborations with BLACK SABBATH in the early-80's, straight through to the outfit with proudly bore his name, Ronnie James Dio personified Heavy Metal. Dio was the real deal: a sweet, genuine man who was extremely passionate about the music he crafted and the fans for which he performed.

We can now add another chapter to the DIO saga with the posthumous release of DIO AT DONINGTON UK: LIVE 1983 & 1987, a barnstorming 2-disc set (released under the auspices of NIJI Entertainment) which captures the DIO band at the height of their powers showcasing two blistering live shows at the legendary MONSTERS OF ROCK Festival at Castle Donington.

Disc One features DIO performing at the 1983 version of the WHITESNAKE-headlined festival and shows them a band afire; plowing through selections from the debut DIO-LP HOLY DIVER (which had just been released through Warner Bros). The classic, throw-your-fists-into-the-air rave-up that is "Stand Up And Shout" kicks proceedings off in the requisite steamroller manner and captures DIO firing on all-cylinders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing!! September 26, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Two absolutely blistering shows on one album. The first show was from 1983, supporting the release of HOLY DIVER. Ronnie was amazing that day, with a band that was matching his ferocity at every step. From show opener of "Stand Up and Shout" to the last note, it is pure Heaven (and Hell...couldn't resist).

The second show is just as exciting, promoting the DREAM EVIL album. RJD and the boys offer up an excellent mix of Rainbow, Sabbath and Dio numbers, keeping the crowd moving. My personal favorite is the excellent performance of "The Fools Sailed Away", but there is not a weak song in the set.

If you are an RJD fan, you MUST own this. Heck, if you are human and like music, you MUST own this.
