  GHOST OF RONNIE JAMES DIO APPEARS AT LAST IN LINE GIG, ALLEGEDLY
9th August 2013

ronnie james dio



Last In Line, the band featuring ex-Dio guitarist Vivian Campbell in addition to founding and past Dio members Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Claude Schnell, played their first concert on Saturday 3rd August at Slidebar in Fullerton, California.

According to allegations made by Last In Line's vocalist Andrew Freeman's brother Raymond Freeman Jr., a very special guest joined the band that night.

Freeman Jr. believes that an apparition of the late Ronnie James Dio made an appearance on stage during the show. He posted about the experience on his Facebook page, explaining: "The moment Ronnie Dio came through this past weekend... Watch the video [in the player at the bottom of this page]... Right when Vinny [Appice] goes too long on the snare fill... Look at my brother's face... That's Dio... channeling through my bro who I have now tagged Di'omen... Weird sh– like this runs in my fam. Call me crazy."

Blabbermouth also caught up with Freeman Jr. to get his personal account.

"I just came across it while looking at photos from the last gig," he explained. "Call me crazy, but it somewhat appears to be Ronnie James Dio just above Vivian Campbell. Just weird... Ghost??? Weird lighting??? Not sure, but it's there and pretty creepy."

To date, no one in the band has commented on the alleged apparition.

Campbell, currently recovering from cancer, had a very public and long running falling out with Ronnie James Dio after he left the band in the 80s.

Check out the photos on this page and the video below and you decide whether Ronnie's ghost was caught in the middle of the Last In Line set or whether this whole scenario is just another lie.







WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
