Let me get this straight, Black Sabbath/Heaven and Hell singer Ronnie James Dio plays a gig in Sabbath City without playing any Sabbath material, interesting concept, but it worked, he didn't have to play anything from his Sabbath years, it made me appreciate how amazing his solo stuff is. The choice of solo songs and even Rainbow songs more than made up for it.
Hail to Ronnie, the guy clearly loves it up on that stage!!!!
Certainly a memorable night for Thee Claw!!!!
