Ann Boleyn - Hellion - publicity photo - 2015

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)
