As reported on The Official Ronnie James Dio Fan Page Facebook:

FROM WENDY DIO:

Dear Friends,

As you all know, Ronnie and I have always been animal lovers and our favorite charity is The Brittany Foundation, as 100% of the monies raised goes to feed and house the dogs. Some of you may remember that three years ago, I spent a Day in Their Paws in a cage with two adorable dogs, trying to raise money and get them adopted. This was one of the last public appearances Ronnie made before his untimely passing.

This year I am going in the cage again with Timka and Tramp to raise money for The Brittany Foundation. I stay in the cage for 24 hours or until I have raised the money for freedom. It costs a dollar a minute for my freedom. I am asking for your help.

Please go to http://www.brittanyfoundationonline.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=48&Itemid=67 and scroll down to my picture with Timka and Tramp, and click the button to donate. We would love to see any of you that would like to join us.

I would like to say a big “thank you” to you all, and as Ronnie would say, “You Rock!”

Wendy Dio

Ronnie James Dio – Remembering A Metal Icon

Ronnie James Dio – As incredible as it sounds, it’s been three years since the iconic Ronnie James Dio passed away. May 16th, 2010 was one of the saddest days in the history of Metal and Rock N’ Roll. At age 67, Ronnie James Dio’s battle with cancer came to a tearful end. No matter how evil cancer is, the one thing it cannot destroy is the memories and spirit of its courageous victims.

The spirit of Ronnie James Dio shall forever live on and my memories of seeing him in concert, listening to his albums and letting his lyrics and music move me will never fade away. Never. I am very pleased to see the constant and never-ending outpouring of love that the fans, bands, musicians and record labels give toward Ronnie James Dio each day on social network sites like twitter and facebook.

It’s truly amazing to read about how many lives that this one incredibly talented man had touched over the decades; and Ronnie James Dio is still touching us all with his never quit strength he had exhibited and priceless Metal spirit that lives on (in all of his fans). There will never be another Ronnie James Dio.

God Bless Ronnie James Dio and may he rest in peace.

Stone.

DIO - Finding The Sacred Heart - promo cover pic - 2013

Finding The Sacred Heart – Live In Philly 1986 was recorded at The Spectrum in Philadelphia on 17 June 1986 during the second leg of the “Sacred Heart” tour, which featured new guitarist Craig Goldy. The show was issued in an edited form first on VHS and then DVD. Now for the first time the full concert is being released as a double CD in the original running order and with remastered sound. It’s an extraordinary live show with a giant animatronic dragon towering over the stage and spectacular lasers and pyrotechnics. Ronnie James Dio is in fine voice as ever and the band deliver a blistering live performance featuring tracks from their first three albums alongside Black Sabbath and Rainbow classics. This will be a must-have release for any Dio fan!

Finding The Sacred Heart – Live In Philly 1986 will also be released on DVD, Blu-ray and LP.
