From Ann Boleyn of Hellion:

Dear Friends,

This email is in response to those of you who have been asking for information about the events on May 15, 16, and 17, to honor the 5th Anniversary of the passing of Ronnie James Dio.

Myself and members of Hellion will be performing at the free Memorial at Forest Lawn on May 16th, and also at the charity fundraiser BBQ on May 17th.  Please note that Hellion will not be performing as a band for these two events, but that individual members are performing.

There is plenty of seating outside on May 16th at Forest Lawn.  There is limited seating inside the auditorium at Forrest Lawn. If you would like to sit inside you will need to request tickets at info@diocancerfund.org. I don’t know if there are any tickets left for the auditorium.  But, if you are interested in sitting inside you will need to contact the Dio Cancer Fund directly.  (If you can’t get tickets for the auditorium, you can watch the concert on the lawn).

For more information about these events, please go to the Dio Charity Fund’s website.

Best,

Ann Boleyn

(Hellion)

Rainbow - The Singles Box Set - 1975-1986 - promo cover pic - 2014

The box set gathers all of Rainbow’s classic singles

__________________________

As one of the cornerstones of British Rock, Rainbow, led by the never-predictable but ever-astonishing guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, became synonymous with some of the most well-regarded and popular charting Rock songs of the seventies and eighties. From the mystic and quasi-religious ‘Man On A Silver Mountain’ to the solid gold anthems of ‘All Night Long’, ‘Long Live Rock ‘N’ Roll’ and ‘Since You Been Gone’, each year in the decade of Rainbow was marked by some of the best songs and performances captured both on record and in-concert.

The box set gathers all of the band’s classic singles from the era in replicas of the original release, alongside a book featuring details on each of the titles.

Passing through the band were some of the best the genre had to offer. Vocalists Ronnie James Dio and Graham Bonnet, bass player and producer Roger Glover and drummer Cozy Powell, each brought their individual talent to the table to record some of Rock’s best-loved Hard Rock on those timeless singles.
