Diminutive heavy metal frontman Ronnie James Dio died in 2010 at age 67, but his legacy lives on in a CD/DVD set celebrating his namesake band. Dio’s “Live in London: Hammersmith Apollo 1993” is a must for anyone who came of age in the 1980s listening to the band’s “Holy Diver,” “The Last in Line” and “Dream Evil” albums.

Dio CDThis is the first-ever video release of the famed 1993 concert, in which Dio strut their way through 18 blistering tunes. Included are signature Dio anthems “Holy Diver,” “Rainbow in the Dark,” “Strange Highways” and “Heaven and Hell,” and the lads also score with “Evilution,” “The Last in Line” and “We Rock.” The DVD includes the full concert, as well as a “Hangin’ With the Band” behind-the-scenes feature. Rock those devil horns proudly. (Jeffrey Sisk)
