Just came back from a wonderful DIO concert in Antwerpen Belgium. (May 3rd 2000)

Dio played a venue called Hof ter Lo which has a 1.300 capacity. To my
surprise this concert was not sold out. I think about 900 people showed up.
Maybe because DIO plays the next 2 concerts in Holland and Antwerpen is very
near Holland.

Don't know the exact set list but they started with I think it was Sunset
Superman. They also played Invisible Gypsy Stand Up And Shout
One Night in the City All the Fools Sailed Away The whole Magica album
Holy Diver Rainbow in the Dark Last In Line
Man on the Silver Mountain Long Live Rock & Roll Mob Rules (last song) Maybe
more were played but I cannot remember now.

A great surprise was that Nicko McBrain made a guest appearance before
Rainbow in the dark started. When the song started Bruce Dickinson walked
on stage to sing along DIO !! Can you believe it? The crowd exploded!

After the song ended both Maiden members walked off stage and later during
the encores Bruce walked back onstage to sing Man on the Silver mountain and
Long Live RnR with DIO. Also Janick Gers, Adrian Smith and Nicko McBrain ran on and off stage havin fun. It seemed all members of Iron Maiden were here and were having a great party as I noticed Bruce was ... well....having a few beers.

I wonder if anyone filmed this show... ;-)
