Dio Disciples: In The Footsteps

Working hard to keep the legacy of heavy metal’s greatest voice alive following his 2010 passing, the touring outfit Dio Disciples are hitting the road celebrating the music of Ronnie James Dio. Comprised of Dio band members guitarist Craig Goldy, bassist Rudy Sarzo, keyboardist Scott Warren and drummer Simon Wright, Dio Disciples brings aboard respected vocalists Tim “Ripper” Owens (Iced Earth, Judas Priest) and Toby Jepson. Their first U.S. tour kicks off Sept. 22 at The Chance in Poughkeepsie and hits the Stone Pony in Asbury Park (you might have heard of it) on Sept. 23. More info at ronniejamesdio.com.
