The late Ronnie James Dio was one of the greatest rock singers of all time, most notably with Rainbow, Black Sabbath and his own band Dio. It was at London s Astoria Theatre on October 22nd 2005 that Dio took to the stage to deliver one of the most memorable performances of their career.

The Godfather of Metal....is still sitting on top of the mountain...and nothing will knock him down!Rudy shows us why he is one of the best bass guitar players out there....magnificent is all I can say...Simon....is the imposingly splendid thunder....his drums will shake your bones,outstanding solo from Simon,Scott's playing is really good....for a metal band....you can hear Scott playing and is not missing from this Dio symphony of classic songs....which is good.I will not spoil it too much for the fans.....get out there now and get your copy now!
There is great interviews from all the band......you got digital sound 5 and 1.....DTS....the whole lot!One thing I did notice from the inner notes....apart from the mistake about ''Goldy''featured spot....when it should have been Doug.....there is no pictures of Doug on the dvd package....or inside....oh well ....we are not perfect....anyway thats just minor details....I am not a fan of Doug's playing and I will ADMIT....he is brillant on the dvd...I am just don't know what happened with the cd.....also Doug played better in London....than what he did in Glasgow..But this dvd is about the outstandingly good and skilful Mr Dio.....this is an amazing singer....who just gets better and better...Mr Dio should be proud...this is an accomplishment of something very special for the fans.....and I thank him for sharing his talent with us....Long Live Rock and Roll.
Holy Diver is a classic cd....timeless...and you get the whole cd in the show...plus classic tracks from the Rainbow and Black Sabbath days,like Tarot Woman,Gates of Babylon and much more..you also get One Night in the City and of course Heaven and Hell.This is classic Dio.
On a truly memorable night in London on 22nd October 2005, Dio delivered a complete live performance of their classic 1983 album Holy Diver in front of a wildly enthusiastic sell-out crowd. Not content with that, the band added tracks from across Ronnie James Dio's career with both Rainbow and Black Sabbath as well as other Dio songs to create the ultimate Dio live concert. They rock!
Here is the list of songs the band played in this live concert, which ran for a total of 1 hour and 53 minutes:
(1) Tarot Woman (originally from Rainbow's classic 1976 album Rising);
(2) The Sign of the Southern Cross (originally from Black Sabbath's 1981 album Mob Rules);
(3) One Night in the City (originally from Dio's 1984 album The Last in Line).
Tracks 4 to 12 consist of Dio's 1983 album Holy Diver played in its entirety and in the same order as on the album itself:
(4) Stand Up and Shout; (5) Holy Diver; (6) Gypsy; (7) Caught in the Middle; (8) Don't Talk to Strangers;
(9) Straight Through the Heart; (10) Invisible; (11) Rainbow in the Dark; (12) Shame on the Night.
Dio and his bandmates go back to playing some other songs from Dio's Rainbow and Black Sabbath days plus one other Dio song after finishing performing Holy Diver in its entirety:
(13) Gates of Babylon (originally from Rainbow's 1978 album Long Live Rock 'n' Roll);
(14) Heaven and Hell (originally from Black Sabbath's 1980 album Heaven and Hell, the first of that band's albums to feature Ronnie James Dio on vocals after Ozzy Osbourne's first departure);
(15) Man on the Silver Mountain (originally from Rainbow's self-titled 1975 debut album Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow - Rainbow was known as Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow at that time because Ritchie Blackmore wanted people to know that he had left his other band Deep Purple);
(16) Long Live Rock 'n' Roll (originally from Rainbow's 1978 album Long Live Rock 'n' Roll);
(17) We Rock (originally from Dio's 1984 album The Last in Line).
Also included in the DVD are interviews with each member of the band at the time of this concert, which in total this bonus feature runs for around 12 minutes, making up the total running time of 125 minutes on the DVD.
I really enjoyed watching this DVD which saw Dio perform Holy Diver live in its entirety for the very first time, and of course it is one of my favourite albums to listen to. I noticed that the band's then guitarist Doug Aldrich used two different guitars in this concert, he used a gold Gibson Les Paul (I believe it was) for playing all the songs from Holy Diver including the title track, whereas he used a black Fender Stratocaster for playing the other songs in this live set (I can't remember for certain if he used the gold Gibson guitar for any of the non-Holy Diver songs, but he mostly used the Fender Strat for those ones). I very highly recommend this DVD to anyone who likes great music like this, you won't be disappointed at all.
The band too is nothing special.Dio (obviously), scott warren,doug aldritch, simon wright and rudi sarzo (or however its spelt) lacks the power and class of dio, jimmy bain,vinnie appaice,craig goldie and scott warren. Sarzo cant really be heard (but at least looks like hes having fun)whereas bain is a great bassist who makes sure he is herd. appaice, best drummer dio ever had. wright is good (and his solo in gypsy is simply great) but he lacks the power. ive no beef with aldritch, i just wish goldie would surface on a live version for a change.
there are some pluses,great solos,great quality,great idea (spoilt with song selection) but i just feel like this concert is spoilt due to songs and no original band members. Ps. i deeply apollogise for my dire spelling!

RJD had THE BEST rock voice EVER. Sadly this release from a tour where I have to say he couldn't deliver vocally.Read more
Spectacular show of this band, which continues as if it were 20 years boys, audio and video in high resolution without words.
