Dio: Sacred Heart tour dates

Sacred Heart tour lasted from 1985 to 1986 - some may argue that there were Sacred Heart and Intermission tours, but I consider them here as one tour. There were a number of warming-up bands - Rough Cutt, Accept, Keel and possibly Twisted Sister, too. Some sources suggest that Accept would've played with them both in 1985 and 1986, but I haven't got confirmation about that yet.
