I just saw the band Dio Disciples and they were great. They played Dio music from Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio. Former Dio guitarist Craig Goldy and ex-Judas Priest singer Ripper Owens were the main players. I strongly recommend to anyone who loves Dio music to go see them. Ripper does a great job of singing like Ronnie.

Seeing them in a week in Portland Me. Looking forward to it, was Witchburn with them?

I'm down for this tour, sounds interesting. Dio was one of my favorite live acts of all time, no question.

ravenousFreak-You wont be dissappointed. Ripper delivers a solid Dio impression. Last year he was singing for Yngwie Malmsteen and did a great cover of Rainbow's Gates Of Babylon!

Ripper singing Catch the Rainbow would be killer.

Then you should go. Setlist includes Catch The Rainbow!

Check Dio Disciples out on You Tube, Ripper does an awesome Dio impersonation. I am traveling almost 2 hours to see this. I wasn't going to do it until I saw the You Tube videos. That changed my mind. Then I looked into Witchburn and got really psyched about the show, I think they are great. I can't wait to meet them. I love bands that grow out of the Sabbath genre.
I was Priest with Ripper in Boston like 10 years ago at the Avalon, that was a great show as well.
