Corey Taylor, Halestorm To Appear At Ronnie James Dio Awards Gala

The third annual Ronnie James Dio Awards Gala is shaping up to be a bit of a beast.

Held on March 17 at the Avalon in Hollywood, California, the show will feature a host of special guests, with all proceeds from the evening going to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund. Plus, there will also be an exclusive playback of star-studded new Dio tribute This Is Your Life!

So far the likes of Halestorm and Corey Taylor – both of whom appear on the tribute – have been confirmed, with more names set to appear on the night.

This Is Your Life features Metallica, Anthrax, Corey Taylor, Halestorm, Killswitch Engage and many more covering a selection of covers of some of Ronnie’s most iconic tracks – as well as some absolutely ludicrous (and amazing) artwork:

Metal as fuck, right?! The album will also raise funds for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (diocancerfund.org) and was organised and produced by his wife, Wendy.

Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life lands on April 1 via Rhino. Check out the full list of covers below:
