    Unfortunately not enough, only the two times for me but they still rank right up there as the best gigs I've been to. They were Melbourne in 1986 on the Sacred Heart tour, then it was another 21 year before Ronnie came back to Australia again, and that was with Heaven & Hell in 2007.

    RIP RJD
    Ah, there's no point regretting things you can't change but I wish I'd been aware of Sabbath comings and goings enough at the time to have seen the Dehumanizer tour- it just didn't register on my radar that RJD was back with the band... And of course, you have no way of knowing that you won't get another chance when you choose not to go and see a gig or tour. That's why I'm grabbing every opportunity now to see the bands I've loved for 20, 30 or more years that are still going... RIP RJD indeed.

    I saw him at the fox theater 92 and at the cobo arena 07. The cobo show was one of the best performances i had ever heard from the guys.

    I've seen Dio on the Last in Line and Sacred Heart tours, and in 2003 with Motorhead and Maiden. What a lineup that was!
    Seen Heaven and Hell in 2007, and in 2009 at the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston. I believe this was his second to last gig and I almost didn't go. So glad I did!
    Wish I saw him with Rainbow and Sabbath back in the day.

    Those of you who know me know my stance on Dio, but i have actually seen him live once, when he was a special guest with Deep Purple when they revisited the Conserto-show back in 2000 or whenever it was. I have to add that was when i was young enough to enjoy that kind of semi-theatrical vocals. The three of us who went agreed it was a great show, even thinking Dio was better than Purple that night...

    Guess you didn't see that one coming... ;-)
    95% of everything i say is pure bullshit just for the fun of it. The other 95% is damn serious!

    Only once, Scared Heart tour 85, with Keel (lol) @ Providence Civic Center (rip).

    I could have gone to that Heaven and Hell show deranged mentioned above but didn't go, d'oh.
