Charity concert to remember Ronnie James Dio‏

The 27th of October will be a day to remember for the Maltese Rock and Metal scene. Some of the finest musicians have teamed up to pay tribute to one of the best internationally acclaimed voice and artist of our time - Ronnie James Dio. The idea was conceived earlier this year when Owen Grech had this vision of organizing a tribute concert to one of his favourite artists. Word got around the local scene and sooner than expected all positions had been filled up. Rehearsals have been taking place for some months.

Apart from a 3hr exploding live performance, this event will also be raising funds for the Malta Hospice Movement, helping patients suffering from Cancer as it was Dio's last battle before he sadly passed away 2 years ago. Expect music from Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Heaven and Hell and obviously the band Dio.

The Main Band will consist of: Owen Grech, Michael Briguglio, Michael Spiteri, Paul Barbara,Julian Grech, Luciano Schembri, Mikaela & Yorika Attard.

Also Featuring: Leo(Forsaken), Jordan(Nomad Son/Frenzy Mono), Chris(26ow), Jozi, Paul(Colorblind), Daryl, Angela(12thOde), SteveLombardo(BNI), Paul Fiku(Purple Haze) and Albert Bell (Nomad Son, Forsaken)

The gig will be taking place @ V-Gen(Paceville).Doors open @ 21:00 hrs. Look for "Long live Rock and Roll" on facebook for updates!
