All Dio. All Night. The Detroit Dio Tribute is an annual cancer fundraiser that features some of the best local heavy metal singers and musicians performing music that spans the career of Ronnie James Dio.
The 2015 lineup includes:
Banned From H.E.L.L., Wulfhook, Rainbow Rising, EVILplay, Twisted Witch, Suckerpunch and Mob Opera.
All bands will be playing sets of Dio's music, from the Prophets to Heaven & Hell.
Hosted by Howie Herula of Hard Edge Radio at TapDetroit.com
Rock and Roll memorabilia sold at the show by Rock N Rummage
This year organizers and participants have chosen to donate 100% of the money raised from the door and the sale of certain other items to an individual suffering a financial hardship due to cancer. This year the designated recipient will be Rachel May's mother Diana Adamski who is undergoing breast cancer surgery and treatment. Rachel has been a co producer, performer and contributor of the event since its inception in 2010.
