Hi all!

Still busy writing here. Noticed that the page passed 400,000 views recently. Thanks to all who have visited in the past and welcome to all of you who are just stopping by for the first time.

Recording will begin very soon for my still untitled new CD. Looking forward to getting this CD recorded so you all can hopefully hear it in the fall.

Small note...caught Testament live last night in New York City. Frickin’ awesome! My first US tour as a member of Savatage was in 1990 supporting Testament, many great memories. The band was on fire last night! Amazing atmosphere. It was great to see my friends in the band and also to see my TSO bandmate Mr. Alex Skolnick shredding some serious heavy metal. Congrats to the guys on their new CD which is coming out soon. They will hit the road in the US with Heaven and Hell, Judas Priest and Motorhead this summer. That show can;t be missed! Metal is alive and well!

Back to work!

Peace!

Myrtle Beach looks like my best bet. I was really hoping for a Nashville date or something. :? A trip to the beach might be up my wife's alley though.

Here ya go - from Dio's MySpace :P

Monday, April 21, 2008
It’s official: Heaven and Hell to tour US with Judas Priest
Current mood: happy
Category: Music


After weeks of speculation, Live Nation has put together a killer package that is bound to go down as the heavy metal event of 2008 - Judas Priest, Heaven and Hell, Motorhead, and Testament will be touring together for the first time.

Dubbed 'The Metal Masters Tour,' the sixteen date U.S. trek kicks off August 6th at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey.

Judas Priest will be supporting their epic concept album, 'Nostradamus,' which will arrive on June 17th via Epic Records, and tells the tale of the renowned 16th century prophet. A few tracks from 'Nostradamus' will make their in-concert debut on 'The Metal Masters Tour,' but the majority of Priest's set list will include some of metal's all-time classics, as well as fan favorites that span the quintet's entire career. Without a doubt, this will be one of Priest's most powerful sets ever. As a 'sneak peak treat' to fans starved for a musical taster, the first cut off the new album will make its world premiere debut as exclusive free MP3 download starting today exclusively at www.livenation.com/judaspriest.

Heaven & Hell will be supporting the release of The Rules Of Hell, a five-CD boxed set available on July 22nd from Rhino Records which features re-mastered versions of all four Dio-era Black Sabbath albums ('Heaven and Hell,' 'Mob Rules,' 'Live Evil,' and 'Dehumanizer') in a deluxe package with new liner notes.

Perennial road rats Motorhead will be touring strictly for the love of it, offering a fan favorites set spanning more than three decades worth of molar-rattling metal. Motorhead's last album was 2006's 'Kiss of Death' (released via Sanctuary Records), their 19th studio set of their long and highly influential career. A new album is currently in the works as well, which is currently being recorded at their old pal Dave Grohl's studio with a August release date targeted. Lemmy blairs out, "Here it comes everybody, the test of your Metalness in 2008 and the years to come! Come one come all and be abused!"

Rounding out the line-up will be legendary thrash metal titans Testament, whose new album, 'The Formation of Damnation,' (April 29th,) displays Testament as the quintessential modern heavy metal band, whose experience and accumulated skill allows them to attack with reserves of anger, energy and finesse that make them more powerful than ever. Lead singer Chuck Billy says, "Uniting these bands is the heavy metal event of generations. We are so proud to be a part of it."

Although all four bands may represent different subgenres of heavy metal, all four have one thing in common – they have stuck to their stylistic guns through thick and thin, and have remained true to the metal form. And soon, band and fan will be united as one on 'The Metal Masters Tour.'

"As ever, we look forward to screaming out loud with our metal maniac fans when we hit the road," enthuses Priest singer, Rob Halford. "Thank you once again for your devotion and support. The Priest is back!"

This tour will be limited to fifteen very special engagements, and Citi cardmembers will have pre-sale access to tickets through Citi's Private Pass® Program, available to all Citi cardmembers at www.privatepass.citi.com.

Metal maniacs seeking the ultimate concert experience can access unique VIP ticket and fan experience packages that offer premium seats, meet & greets, pre-concert parties and more brought to you by the band's official websites, www.judaspriest.com and www.heavenandhelllive.com. VIP packages for the first events will be on sale by 10 a.m eastern time on Friday, April 25th. Also, not all VIP packages are the same, so be sure to pick the right one that suits you best.

Tickets go on sale to the public beginning this weekend at www.livenation.com.

Bristow, VA is near me - I've been to many a show there, including Ozzfest 97 and Rush. It's a nice venue - the only bad thing about it is it's only one way in and one way out - so there's always a clusterfuck postshow. :roll:

That is when an ice chest with beer comes in handy after the show.

As Tom Petty said, The waiting is the hardest part.
