Niji Entertainment and BMG have announced the first two albums in the DIO live album reissue series with “Evil Or Divine: Live In New York City” and “Holy Diver Live” on February 12, 2021. Fans can get an early listen with two tracks launched today, a never-before-released, live version of “Lord Of The Last Day” and a live version of the classic “Holy Diver”. Watch a video for “Holy Diver” now below.

Wendy Dio, who has served as the curator of Dio‘s musical legacy and everything that relates to her late husband’s career (including the Ronnie James Dio hologram tour), says: “I am very excited to be working with BMG, a label that still has a passion for rock music. They will be making the complete DIO catalog available again with some interesting surprises.”
