Win Tickets to the Legendary Detroit Dio Tribute

Cancer is a bullshit disease that has taken the life of way too many people that we love. The disease doesn't care if you're young or old, rich or poor, or a legendary rock star. It is merciless and treats us all the same. But, sometimes we have the last laugh because cancer might be able to take away the people we love, but it cannot make us forget them. In 2010 cancer took the life of legendary rock star Ronnie James Dio, but it wasn't able to silence his voice. Ronnie's fans have come up with a fun way to come together to say fuck you to the disease by gathering to remember his life by rocking out to some of his music. This yearly gathering is a way to honor the rock star while raising money to continue to fight the disease that took him off the stage.

This year's tribute show will take place on Saturday, May 19th at The Loving Touch and will feature performances by Banned from Hell, Evil Play, Rainbow Rising, Rock and Roll Children, The Black Drops, The Whiskey Charmers, and Alienstorm. The bands will be performing music from Ronnie's entire career, including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, and his solo stuff. Comedian Tom McCarthy will be hosting the show and this year's profits will be donated to Lenny Earls, a local musician who is undergoing throat cancer treatment. Tickets to attend the show are only $10 and they can be purchased in advance here. If you are unable to attend the show but want to donate to help Lenny anyways, click here.

We also have one pair of tickets to giveaway to the show courtesy of JSB Productions. If you would like to enter to win please email your full name to with the subject line #fuckcancer.  We will draw one lucky person the day of the show and they will get to attend for free!
