This past Monday marked the first annual Ronnie James Dio ‘Stand Up and Award’ Ceremony at the Avalon in Hollywood, California. The event was held to acknowledge those within the rock and metal music community who were influenced by the late Ronnie James Dio, and to assist in funding research against the demon that is cancer.
Those fans who were attendance at one of the concerts earlier this week in York, Pennsylvania, could not have ever anticipated the surprise live collaboration between these two artists.
After taking a short break, the Cinderella front man is excited to get back on the road. It has just been announced that Tom Keifer will be playing two dates in September with Halestorm, in support ‘The Way Life Goes’. He just finished the first leg of his 2013 tour, wrapping it up with a special television performance on The Late Show with David Letterman.
