On Monday Ronnie James Dio Resurrected Via Hologram At Music Festival was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Dio Disciples were joined onstage at Wacken by a hologram of the late singer Ronnie James Dio. The surprise stunt took place towards the end of the band's set at the German festival Friday night (August 6) as 75,000 fans saw Dio reunite with former members of his band via hologram for a performance of We Rock .

The production was a year in the making and the firm behind the idea, Eyellusion, say it was "the first time a hologram has been accompanied by a live band in a traditional concert setting."

Future shows with the Dio hologram are being planned by the band. Ronnie's widow Wendy, who also manages Dio Disciples and works with Eyellusion, says: "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." Read more - here.
