RONNIE JAMES DIO Performs With QUEENSRŸCHE In L.A.: Short Video Available

Ronnie James Dio appeared on stage with QUEENSRŸCHE on Thursday (October 5) at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles to sing his part of Dr. X on the song "The Chase" from the "Operation: Mindcrime II" album.

According to one person who attended the concert, "Dio and Tate [QUEENSRŸCHE frontman Geoff Tate] were awesome together!!! Ronnie was spectacular... he improvised a couple of times and was just incredible! Dio and Tate played each other to a 'T'. What a performance by both!! AWESOME!!! Ronnie was into it. He was playing Dr. X and showed the emotion of 'X' excellently. Ronnie was fluid and moving like he did 10 years ago. Just incredible. In the end, Dio never took the stage again; he sang his song then vanished. Still, he played an incredible part of the show..."

Check out a short 17-second video clip of Ronnie performing with QUEENSRŸCHE at Photos from the gig (not including Ronnie) can be viewed at Wire Image.

The Los Angeles concert was reportedly recorded for a new QUEENSRŸCHE double live album. Tentatively titled "Operation: LIVECrime II", the set will include a live production of the original "Mindcrime" on Disc 1 and a live production of "Mindcrime II" on Disc 2.
