It's Official: Ronnie James Dio will appear on stage with Queensryche, October 5th at the Gibson Amphitheater, one night only to sing his part of Dr. X on Queensryche's Operation Mindcrime II.

Dio stated, "I've been asked to reprise my performance as Dr. X on the Operation Mindcrime II in a live venue. It worked out where I was able to do it for this show, and it should be quite a treat."

Dio heads off to Scandinavia next weekend, playing Copenhagen's Amager Bio on 8/28, Aarhus' Train on 8/29, the Hamar Music Festival on 8/31, Riga's Skonto Hall on 9/2, and then the Loud Park Festival in Japan in October with stops in Tokyo and Osaka before heading home to work on the next Dio studio record and putting finishing touches on the new tracks for Black Sabbath: The Dio Years.
