do you really need a review????ok i guess you do... this review is simple. ...WHEN RONNIE COMES TO TOWN, YOU GO SEE HIM!!! Whether he's on a 100' stage or a 20' stage, he ALWAYS give 110% PLUS. ronnies voice is in PERFECT shape, as always, and the bands extremely tight. for those of you who still aren't sure about tracy g, don't worry.....oh hell, just go to a DIO show and see tracy for yourself.
anyway, if you want a review just checkout Mikes review of the show at THE EDGE in palo alto. i'd just be saying the same thing he did. the one song i wish they would have played, but didn't, was "dying in america". actually if they could have played for about 8hrs, they would have covered all the songs i would have wanted to hear:> i'm with you mike, it was a pleasant suprise to hear "mistreated"!
if i read a recent note in alt dio right, WARD is going to the show tonight 2-14. i'm sure he'll post a review. ....and remember, WHEN RONNIE COMES TO TOWN, YOU GO SEE HIM!!! -----that was for the NON diehard ronnie fans!
