Hi all! I'm a little drunk, but i'll try to make a short review of tonights show in Sweden.
I can't tell you how happy i am to have Craig back in the band. I know many of you liked Tracy, but i have to say he was my least favorit Dio guitar player.
You could see that Ronnie was very pleased to have Craig back in the band. Every time he looked at Craig he had a big smile on his face. I think Craig was awesome.
I think this was the best Dio show i have ever seen.
Deep Purple was great, but it was too late, Dio had already stolen the show. They started out whith Evilution, and that was the only song they did of the songs that Tracy was involved whith.
As i said i'm a litlle drunk so i can't remember in what order they did the songs but here is the songs they did, they are not in the right order (maybe i have forgotten one or two songs).
Well Ronnies voice just seem to get better every time i see him. The rest of the band was also great. The crowd was great, you could see that Ronnie was very happy that there where so many watching the show (i think that everybody on the festival was watching the show).
I talked to a few people that had come to see Deep Purple, but even they had to admit that Dio stole the show.
I can just say that you will all be pleased with the current linup. I must say again that i'm very very happy to have Craig back on guitar, the next album is going to be a killer.
Jonas (who probably can't sleep tonight either)
