Right now Ronnie is finishing up a month of vacation but will continue the Magica tour this month. Some US dates are apparently planned, as well as apparently bigger tours in Europe and South America, possibly also Japan. Also, the Deep Purple concerto tour will also have a few dates in the USA if everything goes fine.

Ronnie’s also working on a sequel to the Hear ‘N Aid project, titled as Children Of The Night. Supports kids living on the streets in LA. Then, the Elf reunion project is still under work, something will most likely happen this year.

Dio’ll apparently go to studios in the summer and the new album is tentatively (very tentatively I’d guess) scheduled for October release. It won’t be a concept piece "but a real rocker instead."

Thanks to Tapio for the Dio news.
