The ‘Dio Returns’ tour will kick off next month in Germany, and we have a new preview of what fans can expect today. As we all know by now, this run will feature Ronnie James Dio‘s hologram alongside the Dio Disciples, and the latest tour promo gives us a new look at the updated hologram. Check it out below!
Wendy Dio said this on the world tour, “In 1986, for the Sacred Heart Tour, Ronnie and I created the Crystal Ball with Ronnie filmed and speaking in a suspended crystal ball effect, done with back projection, which was the closest we could get to a hologram. Ronnie was always wanting to experiment with new stage ideas and was a big Disney fan. With this said, I am sure he is giving us his blessing with this hologram project. It gives the fans that saw Ronnie perform an opportunity to see him again and new fans that never got to see him a chance to see him for the first time. We hope everyone will enjoy the show that we have all worked so hard to put together.”
