For the next three nights, the German metal queen will be filling in for singer Tim “Ripper” Owens on the following Dio Disciples dates:
7/01/2011 Rockstar Live – Bilbao, Spain
7/02/2011 Heineken – Madrid, Spain
7/03/2011 Bikini – Barcelona, Spain
Dio Disciples is the new project featuring former Dio members Rudy Sarzo (bass), Simon Wright (drums), Craig Goldy (guitar) and Scott Warren (keyboards), along with Owens and additional singer Toby Jepson, who pay tribute to legendary vocalist, Ronnie James Dio. Owens was unable to make the Spanish shows to celebrate his daughter’s wedding.
Commented Pesch: “I’m so excited to be a part of this tour. I listened day and night to Ronnie James Dio’s amazingly wonderful song and I will try me very best to do a good job with them. I feel so honored and blessed to be a part of this and to keep Dio’s music and magic alive. He was truly the greatest rock and metal singer of all time. We love you, Ronnie. I will sing my heart out for you and the fans. ”
