Dio: Lock Up the Wolves tour dates

Dio started their European tour warming up for Metallica in Central Europe (Bonham played with them too, before Dio's set). After the five Metallica shows in Germany, Holland and France, Dio started to tour in the UK with Trouble as their warming-up band. The North American part of the tour was called Throw 'Em To Wolves Tour.
