Live Tribute to Ronnie James Dio

From Doogie's blog:

21st May 2010 - Catch the Rainbow.


The 1st 2 shows in Buenos Aires with Rata Blanca went very well The audience came and sang and danced and got truely involved We ended the main set with Catch the Rainbow, strangely a song I had never sung before, as a tribute to Ronnie Dio Just the mention of his name had the whole venue singing "Ole Ole Dio Dio" It had the hairs standing up on my neck It was a beautiful thing.

A huge thanks goes to the Rawkers who came to both shows for the warm reception to our rendition of the song Tonight sees the final show in Buenos Aires before heading off to Rosario and Cordoba for a couple of gigs So we will continue to play Catch the Rainbow for these shows and take and share a moment to think of the contribution Ronnie made to so many of our lives and to send our thoughts and prayers to Wendy and the extended Dio family Buenos Aires. Thankyou.

Last night's final show in Buenos Aires was filled to the rafters and then some It started rather later than the others as a "Very Famous" comedian had a soldout show in the same venue just before us, so all the tables and chairs, food and fancy dressings had to be put away The roar when the band finally hit the stage was staggering.

The fans sang along to every word and knew the versions in English The cameras and video phones were in full sight and then at the end and very respectfully they were all turned off as once again we played Catch the Rainbow in memory of Ronnie James Dio Thank you Buenos Aries. Enjoy this very special weekend that celebrates your independance from Spain 200 hundred years...Whats that in metric..Lets ask the BBC Peace.
