Ronnie James Dio was resurrected via a hologram during a performance by the Dio Disciples at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany this past weekend and video from the show has surfaced online.

The Dio Disciples was formed by the late metal legend's former bandmates following his death from cancer to pay tribute to his musical legacy and during their performance of the Dio classic "We Rock" at the renowned music festival they were joined by the hologram of the iconic singer.

Ronnie's widow and Disciples manager Wendy Dio had the following to say about the hologram which was developed by Eyellusion, "When I first experienced the full production of Ronnie performing with his band as a hologram, I couldn't believe my eyes and ears.

"With Eyellusion, we have been able to get Ronnie back up on stage where he belongs, ensuring that his music and memory live on. I want Ronnie's fans around the world to share this experience."

Dio Disciples guitarist Craig Goldy adds, "We know how much the fans miss Ronnie and the special and unequaled element that he brought to his live performances. Being able to recreate that same kind of magic for his fans at Wacken was incredible."

Goldy also hinted that fans can expect to see the hologram in the future, "For so many years Ronnie always invested big in his live shows as his way to give back to the fans, and that is exactly what we aimed to do with this latest performance. We can't wait to bring this experience to even more of his fans and perhaps even a newer generation when we bring this incredible live experience on the road next year."
