Halestorm + Corey Taylor Lead Performance Lineup for 3rd Annual Ronnie James Dio Awards
The late Ronnie James Dio's impact was far reaching, as evidenced not only by the upcoming tribute album that's coming this year but also by the talent lineup on hand for the 3rd Annual Ronnie James Dio Awards Gala. Let's start with Halestorm and Corey Taylor, who will be rocking the stage at this year's event in Hollywood, Calif.
The gala will serve a double purpose this year, as those on hand will not only be there to check out the awards presentations, but they'll also get to exclusively hear the new 'This Is Your Life: A Tribute to Ronnie James Dio' disc before it drops in stores April 1 via Rhino Records.
In addition to Halestorm and Taylor, Oni Logan, Jimmy Bain, Rowan Robertson, Brian Tichy and more are confirmed to rock the stage for those in attendance. And the "Metal God" himself, Rob Halford, will be one of the night's honorees.
All proceeds from the show will go to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. Tickets for the event, which will take place March 17 at The Avalon in Hollywood, Calif., can be purchased online at this location.
