A one-hour live recording of DIO's performance at this year's Sweden Rock festival (which took place on June 11) was broadcast on Swedish radio P4 this past weekend. A replay of the program is available for streaming at this location (in Real Media).

The current DIO touring lineup includes guitarist Doug Aldrich (WHITESNAKE), who has been filling in for an injured Craig Goldy for the past four weeks. Craig was previously said to have hurt his arm while touring Russia and was trying to continue to play the shows on painkillers, but was forced to leave the trek in early October.

In other news, DIO's December 1 date in Aarhus, Denmark has been cancelled. No reason was given for the cancellation. The first date of DIO's Scandinavian run will now be December 3 in Copenhagen. Also appearing on the bill will be URIAH HEEP and ASIA. The schedule is now as follows:

Dec. 03 - Copenhagen, DEN @ K.B. Hallen
Dec. 04 - Oslo, NOR @ Sentrum
Dec. 05 - Gothenburg, SWE @ Liseberghallen
Dec. 06 - Stockholm, SWE @ Arenaen
Dec. 08 - Helsinki, FIN @ Icehall
Dec. 09 - Jyvaskyla, FIN @ Icehall
Dec. 10 - Oulu, FIN @ Teatria

Aldrich's sole studio recording with DIO came in the shape of 2002's "Killing the Dragon", after which he toured with the group before leaving to join the touring lineup of WHITESNAKE.
