Sorry its so late, but here it is.
The Fog started to Roll Out about 15 minuts before the lights fell. It was in this little Club called the Agora. The Fog was so Bad that the security opened a service door off to the side of the club.
The House Lights finally Went down and the place went nuts. It was Stuffed to capacity by the time Dio was on. The Song List as I remember it Goes:
It was Strange that he totaly Blew off the last four albums he did (Sacred Heart, Dreem Evil, Lock UP the Wolves, and Dehumanizer (Done with Black Sabbath)).
It was an entertaining show. Dio had a lot of power as usual. He had a real Cool light show also. The Sound was good. Jeff Pilson, Kenny G and Vivian Cample Were also quite good. but Something was missing.
I've Seen Dio four times now (Dream Evil, Lock up the Wolves, Dehuminzer, and Strange Highways). This show lacked the visual Intensities that Dio had on Previous Tours. Also Why was he in such a small Place?
Oh Well, It's a good album, and if your a Dio Fan Go to the show it's worth it. As a Concert in general I'd give it a 8 as A Dio Show I give it a 5.
The OPening acks were boaring and not worth mentioning.
