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.
Damn, that's awesome. I actually really like Strange Highways
. That was an interesting era for Dio. Sounds like an awesome experience.
Anyways, as for the Judas Priest/H&H thing, I didn't see the Metal Masters tour, but I will say the H&H 2007 set list was better, in my opinion. Dropping "Computer God" and "After All" for "Time Machine" is not a great move...
