Dio offshoot Last In Line have confirmed a UK tour for November and December this year, with an additional date in Germany.
The lineup features guitarist Vivian Campbell and drummer Vinny Appice, who became members of Ronnie James Dio’s band when he went solo in 1982.
Appice recently said Last In Line would “be around” more during 2017 as Campbell’s Def Leppard duties eased off, adding: “We haven’t really gone out and bombarded the audience with this yet.
“A lot of people can’t wait for us to come to their cities. It looks like next year we’ll be able to do that, then we’ll be able to hit all the big festivals in Europe too.”
UK tour support comes from Inglorious. Last In Line released debut album Heavy Crown in February. Dio died in 2010.
