DIO’s The Entire Donington Compilation Box Set Will Be Released This July


On July 19, Niji Entertainment & BMG will introduce The Whole Donington Collection in the form of a special 5LP box set. This valuable assortment will present Dio’s legendary shows at the Donington Festival in 1983 and 1987, on 2LP 180 gram vinyl with a unique etching on Side D, and will also include the exclusive Picture Disc Double Dose of Donington ’83 & ’87.

Reminiscing about these historic performances, Wendy Dio – the widow and former manager of the iconic late vocalist – comments: “Cherished recollections of sitting on the lawn and witnessing the bands perform. This is an extraordinary compilation. 1983 when Ronnie had just recently assembled the Dio group and once again in 1987. Ronnie always relished performing in Britain, he adored the crowds and the ale!”

Dio at Donington ‘83 presents the initial Dio ensemble during the Holy Diver Circuit, a pivotal period unfolding just three months post their debut album’s launch. The show is filled with timeless tunes from Ronnie James Dio’s distinguished journey with Rainbow and Black Sabbath, in addition to soon-to-be beloved gems like “Holy Diver”, “Rainbow In The Dark”, and “Stand Up And Shout”.

By 1987, following three flourishing studio publications and attaining silver, gold, and platinum certifications worldwide, Dio revisited Donington with the Dream Evil ensemble. The Dio at Donington ‘87 performance includes unforgettable anthems like “The Last In Line”, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Children,” and “All The Fools Sailed Away”.
