RONNIE JAMES DIO has issued the following announcement:

"Please be aware that the DIO band is not playing any North American dates this year, and that there is a person going around booking fictitious dates with unsuspecting promoters.

The only dates this year that are legitimate are the UK/Scandinavian dates as listed on the tour section."

It was reported yesterday that Dio would headline the 4th annual Ride For Dime charity concert on August 16th - apparantly this is false information. Rob Eichelberger, Vice President of Ride For Dime, Inc has issued the following statement:

"As you are probably aware this comes as devastating news to Ride For Dime. We put our faith in a person that represented himself as Doug Goldstein, management for RJD. I actually paid a deposit to the gentleman to secure the date and he went so far as to give me his federal tax ID and have a signed contract from him. Again we are very sorry to have mislead anyone, it was not done intentionally. I hope the RJD Management will forgive any embarrassment our site may have caused them. We will pursue this matter."

Dio is currently working on a new Heaven and Hell album with the Heaven and Hell era Black Sabbath lineup.
