Two times. With Dirty Deeds and Iron Maiden in 1998 (the Angry Machines line-up) and with Judas Priest, Motorhead, and Testament (with Heaven and Hell). Never saw him in his prime but he still had a phenominal voice.

Saw him with Heaven & Hell on the Metal Master tour (Judas Priest, H&H, Motorhead, Testament) - best band of the night and an amazing performance by RJD.

Well, that concert sure gave me even more of an appreciaton for Tony Iommi. I knew he was a good guitarist but didn't know how good until I saw Black Sabbath (I very rarely call them Heaven And Hell) on that tour. I already knew how good Dio was live and even 10 years after I saw him the first time he hadn't decreased in quality one bit.

I saw him twice. The first time was in a small club on the Angry Machines tour. The second time was in 2004 when he was with Motorhead and Iron Maiden. It was surreal getting to hear him perform Stargazer live. That is one of my fondest music memories.

Saw him in Oct. 2005 (I believe) in Dallas with Fireball Ministry and Phantom X at the Gypsy Ballroom.

Fantastic show by all three bands!

Saw him on the Mob Rules tour in 1981, then on the Sacred Heart tour a few years later, and then with H&H on their first tour.

Got to see him on the H&H / Judas Priest / Testament / Motorhead tour a few years back. Awesome, awesome show. Very glad I got to see him before he passed.

Saw him in a small venue in Seattle on the Killing The Dragon Tour and the performance and RJD's showmanship was simply amazing. KIngs X opened the show and Hammerfall was on the bill but "cancelled"...

I saw that same show but in Helsinki. It was the Magica tour (Brutal Planet tour for Alice), so it must have been 2000 or 2001.

The second time that I saw Dio was in a festival. I believe it was the 2004 Tuska Open Air.

The first show was awesome, but I think Ratt played a little too long and Dio had to cut Neon Knights from the set. They opened the set with Sunset Superman.

I don't remember all that much from the festival gig, except that they played a new song called The Eyes from the yet unreleased new album, and we were thinking if the song was actually The Eyes or The Ice.

I had a chance to see H&H, but, being that I haven't liked their album, decided to wait for Dio solo tour. That show was in autumn 2009...

Unfortunately I never got the chance to see RJD in the flesh. The last time he came thru my area was when Heaven and Hell toured with Judas Priest (which was what, 2008? 2009? I don't remember now), and my brother asked if I wanted "in" when he bought tickets but unfortunately I was too damn broke at the time, so I passed, saying "I'll catch'em next time." Of course, there was no next time. I've been kicking myself ever since.

Saw him on the Mob Rules tour ('80? '81?) in Chicago (International Ampitheater).
It was birthday present from my older brother.
Alvin Lee (from 10 Years After) opened.

I saw Dio 3 times and met him two times, once in munich, once at the sweden rock festival with Heaven and Hell and he even rembered me and wondered why i'm here as he t hought Sweden is quita a mile from Germany.
Dio was always nice, such a great guy. In munich my father was with me, so we had a talk about Rainbow, Deep Purple it was awesome and Dio never acted liked "I'm a rock star" he was very humble and genuine.

His death was really devastating to me, more than anything other musician i liked

Saw Dio several times as a solo artist, including on the Holy Diver and Last in Line tours. One of my favorite tours was the Magica tour because the band played the entire album from beginning to end. I thought that was great!

I also saw Dio a few times with Heaven & Hell.

I remember on another board I post at, someone had the same story about George Carlin.

I've seen him twice. The first time was his solo band when they toured with Maiden and Motorhead. The other was a Heaven & Hell show.

I saw him as part of the Heaven & Hell line-up and tour back in 2007. Down opened.

H&H were phenomenal. Easily the best concert I ever attended (short of seeing Iron Maiden on the Somewhere Back in Time tour).
