But with the solo band, he definitely played more intimate venues.
They don't get any more intimate than a bar in Pocatello, Idaho where I saw Dio back in '94 on the Strange Highways tour. I was glad someone was actually coming to that small nowhere town that I lived in then, which had been ignored by everyone (and still is to this day) since the '80s. Great show, I wish I hadn't got quite so hammered at it though. I recall he opened with Jesus, Mary and the Holy Ghost and hit all the classics.
