The website Classic Rock is reporting that possible Dio tribute concerts are planned for both London and Los Angeles this fall. Rumor has it that if this does go off – Heaven and Hell would perform with Judas Priest screamer Rob Halford on vocals.
UPDATE: Blabbermouth.net has posted that these shows were confirmed during the public memorial for Ronnie held at Forest Lawn in Los Angeles, CA on May 30th, 2010.
It has now been confirmed that two major concerts are being planned to celebrate the life of the late Ronnie James Dio. The gigs — dubbed Ronnie James Dio “Stand Up And Shout” Memorial Concerts — will take place in London and Los Angeles in the fall. There are also plans to hold annual events in the years to follow “so that Ronnie is never forgotten” and to raise money for cancer awareness and support, according to artist manager Adam Parsons.
