The show in NY rocked. The crowd turn out was awesome. All the people were very nice and had a positive attitude. I had a lot of awesome conversations with fans. Ronnie must be feeling better because he was so happy to see all the people. He was danking around a lot a gave atleast 150% of is effort.
The set list stayed pretty much the same there was a little bit of change going from one song to the other but the set list stayed the same.
I will say that the NY. show is the best Dio show that i have ever seen. I did not get backstage, (I didn't even try i figured NYC would be very hard) but I did get to speak with Ronnie at slip disc records and he was awesome!!!!!! He signed what ever you brought. The rest of the band was also having a great time. They seemed to take great joy in making fun of Ronnie every time someone had a picture of him when he was younger. Vinny is especially good at doing this. The show in worcster has been postponed until Monday dec.2 so I wil give you a review of that one on tuesday.
