Here is the recap: (Adrenaline) Organizers have announced that the 2nd Annual Ride For Ronnie Motorcycle Ride and Concert, benefiting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, will take place on Sunday, May 22, 2016.

A live auction will be held during the concert that will include a donated stage guitar that Chris Broderick of Act of Defiance played during his time with Megadeth (as well as autographed photos of Chris playing the same guitar) and a B.C. Rich guitar signed by Ronnie James Dio, Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), King Diamond and Geoff Tate. Find more details - here.
