Ronnie James Dio was a very talented musician; he was loved and was one of metal's best voices. It's sad to think that he's not among us anymore but Dio was a great man who cared about not only the music but his fans and he always had a positive message, he was also a strong influence on metal in general, he left his mark. Few have sung with as many bands as Ronnie has: Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, solo as Dio and finally, Heaven & Hell. With Dio's passing Neon Knights 30 Years of Heaven & Hell (also called Live In Europe in the U.S. and Live At Wacken in Europe) is released, the show was recorded on July 30th 2009 on the tour promoting Bible Black. Due to Ronnie's passing the band disbanded, however, they played a final show in tribute to Dio this summer with singer Glen Hugues, it's smart of them to end the band (and the tribute was a nice touch! And no, Glen won't be replacing Dio). But this isn't only about Ronnie, it's also about Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice who are all great musicians in their own right, it's together that they are Heaven & Hell.

Ronnie sounds incredible (especially on Children of the Sea), his voice is so powerful and strong for his age it's amazing. Tony Iommi is the master of riffs and shows us what he's capable of. Bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Vinny Appice make a strong rhythmic section. 8 of the songs here also appear on the first live Heaven & Hell album, Live From Radio City Music Hall (which has 15 songs), they are still different versions because the band doesn't play the exact same show every time so I'd say this album is worth the buy. Plus the songs from their only studio album, Bible Black, are terrific live! (Follow the Tears and the title track being amongst the best songs on this live album).

5.0 out of 5 stars A great companion to a great DVD!!! Nov. 18 2010
Format:Audio CD
As a Metalhead, I can't really ask more than to hear Black Sabbath live. Sure they went by the name Heaven & Hell, but in my heart & soul they only have one name... Black Sabbath. I know we heard those songs hundred & thousnad of times before; So what make this release special? Well 1st, there's the obvious that Ronnie James Dio is no longer with us, also on this release we get to hear live rendition of songs that are on "The Devil You Know" which, on a side note, got the best cover art I've seen in years if not decades. So many bands try to shock & awe & always fails so miserably. Leave it to the Sabbath boys to show us all what terror is all about. That right there my friends is Metal. But let's get back to this album.

The main reason why this CD is so special is that it was recorded one month before the tour was to end due to Ronnie learning about his cancer. That means that, at the time of this concert, Ronnie was sadly already hill. yet he shows no signs of it on stage. He rocks through each songs with the usual awesome power & emotion that he was known for. Over 65 & sick but still giving his fans what they wanted; Truly amazing. Of course we can't listen to this album without noticing how the rest of the band seems to be in great shape. Tony, Geezer & Vinny delivers a rock solid performance & are at the top of there game.

The bottom line is there's no reason to go into great details about this concert. It's Black Sabbath so it rocks period! I truly recommend the DVD as there's no experience like seing Ronnie & the boys live, but this CD is the perfect companion if you wnat to crank it up in your car, bedroom, work or where ever you listen to CDs. This release is another example of why Ronnie James Dio is still missed by so many today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Final Bow from Ronnie James Dio Jan. 3 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I don't mind that this makes two Sabbath live albums since the reunion with Dio. Obviously, with Dio now gone, this is his final live album. Also, there was a studio album in between those two live albums (The Devil You Know) and there are three songs from it here. The fact that none of these albums are released under the name "Black Sabbath" means nothing, this is Black Sabbath by any other name.

Obviously Ronnie was not a young man when he died, and the human voice changes naturally with age. This is not the same sound as the guy who recorded Mob Rules or Heaven and Hell. The older Ronnie had a deeper voice, the range reduced noticably. However, it is still Ronnie James Dio, one of the most powerful charismatic metal singers of all time. It might be an older, wiser Ronnie, but he knows how to work around his voice's limitations to still deliver stirring versions of these songs.

The band itself is cooking. Tony's riffing and soloing sounds straight out of 1980. Vinnie's drumming is more fill-laden than it was on The Devil You Know which was very sparse. Geezer is playing those rolling, rollicking basslines that only he can compose and helps define that Black Sabbath sound. Most importantly, these guys were having fun showing the world why they are the greatest heavy metal band of all time. This is the way it should have gone with Dehumanizer. That reunion should have lasted a long time, should have produced tours like this one, and should have produced a live album. However grunge didn't help and the band weren't ready to stick it out back then. This then is our last chance to appreciate the Iommi/Butler/Appice/Dio lineup of Black Sabbath, which should have but didn't get all the glory back in '92, last time they tread the boards of hockey barns nationwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live Dio, Long Live Sabbath Nov. 16 2010
By J. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although it's been said many times, it bears being repeated once more considering the events of the past year: This could be the last hurrah for Black Sabbath. And if this is the end of the legend, I, as a longtime fan, don't have any complaints about the final incarnation. History has been much kinder to the Dio-fronted version of Sabbath than the 80's and 90's were, and that appreciation began long before Ronnie's untimely passing. I myself resisted the Dio years for a long time, but as a fan of heavy metal music, I couldn't ignore those incredible albums forever. The band Heaven and Hell has been immensely popular, and for good reason, because it has taken the up-and-down legacy of the Sabbath name and cemented its iconic status in the metal world. Riding this wave of popularity, it may well turn out that Ronnie's passing ended Sabbath's career with the band back on top. This performance, as well as the Radio City Music Hall CD, reaffirms that these guys have been successful for decades because they are the best at what they do, and Dio's capabilities as a singer and frontman were never surpassed by anyone. He was certainly rivaled, and in some instances equaled, but never surpassed. I love all of these songs, and I'm glad they released both DVD and CD versions. If you're a Sabbath fan, let this stand as a powerful conclusion to a one-in-a-million band; and if you're a Dio fan, this and the new Dio Live at Donington should make this a week to remember, and to appreciate Dio's influence, skill, and dedication to the music we, his fans, will love and listen to forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars "You are the strongest chain, and not just some reflection"-Ronnie James Dio Nov. 16 2010

Plus the songs from their only studio album, The Devil You Know, are terrific live! (Follow the Tears and the title track being amongst the best songs on this live album). The show starts out with a strong version of Mob Rules, goes into what I consider perhaps THE best Black Sabbath/Dio song, Children of the Sea (this live version is the better one, Dio couldn't be more into it, simply amazing). Then there's an excellent super long version of Heaven & Hell, there is also a great version of Time Machine and the superb new songs.Live in Europe features songs from all four albums Dio recorded with Tony Iommi and co. (three under the name Black Sabbath and one as Heaven & Hell)

From Heaven & Hell: Children of the Sea, Die Young, Heaven & Hell, Neon Knights.

From Mob Rules: Mob Rules, Falling Off The Edge of the World.

From Dehumanizer: I,Time Machine.

From The Devil You Know: Bible Black, Fear, Follow the Tears. (H & H already had a live album out but this one features some different songs from their studio album The Devil You Know, plus this performance is very good)

This is an excellent live disc, it has only 11 songs but great performance by the band and the sound is very good. If you're a fan these songs (the show was one of Dio's last) are a great way to remember Ronnie are worth hearing if you're curious. A week before Live In Europe was released a double disc Dio live packaged called Dio: At Donnigton UK 1983 & 1987, live shows from his solo career which is another great way to commemorate Dio's career. Live In Europe would be a good addition to your collection; the sounds is good and the musicians perform to the degree you'd expect, if you're into live albums this is highly recommended (if you're not why are you reading this anyway?). The first Heaven & Hell live album was a nice one and this is a nice companion to it, don't be afraid to buy just because they have some of the same songs, they always sound different in a way or another. The DVD of the show is a good companion to this live album and is also worth looking into. RATING: 4/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great live cd Dec 1 2010
By Samantha Rose Quintana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great live cd. I must say, the vocals could have been cleaned up a bit, since they were for the dvd. I did think thet Ronnie was very tired or the treatments were getting to him, but when you see the dvd of this cd, you will see that Ronnie still looks awesome and is doing fine. But other then the vocals needing some cleaning, it is a very good cd to listen to, and thats why I gave it 5 stars, it is a live cd for that matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch group of musicians!...with a tragic twist Dec 16 2010
By metalman69 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Whether you refer to these guys are `H&H', `Black Sabbath Mk II' or whatever, one thing is for certain, IMHO this is one of the finest combination of musicians to ever grace the hard-rock/heavy-metal scene. (no slight intended to the original Ozzy lineup, which undoubtedly laid the groundwork for real heavy music). Anyway no need to go into any analysis here, because none is needed, but listening to this or any quality live or studio recording ever made by this particular group of musicians has only solidified the notion that, despite his age, Tony Iommi has been and will always be the originator and master of the HEAVY guitar riff (the clear heavy sharpness and precision of his playing always sends chills up and down my spine) and Ronnie James Dio is one of the greatest and most unique vocalists in all of heavy music. (I grew up with albums such as 'Heaven & Hell' & 'Mob Rules') However the tragedy of this whole story is that unfortunately they have only assembled to create new music for us every 10-15 years or so, and now that they have once again come to their senses, reconciled and decided that they could work together once again, it turns out that poor Ronnie James Dio would soon leave this world forever. Personally I would have loved to see them continue for as long as possible. In a bizarre way this story reminds me of the movie `Forrest Gump'. Anybody who has seen this film will recall the constant periodic encounters Forrest has with that girl of his dreams over many years, where unfortunately she drifts away from him each time. At the end of the film when she finally decides she loves him and marries him, it turns out she's dying(!). So goes a similar analogy to story of Iommi and company's relationship with Ronnie James Dio (R.I.P.).
Oh well, at least I can say that I've had the pleasure of personally seeing these guys perform twice in my home town (2007, and 2008). Enjoy this live recording, along with anything else they have ever released.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dio and Sabbath at their Finest Jan. 10 2013
By Daryl Capen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's amazing that these guys continued to play it hard and loud for all these years. Dio had to adapt his singing with his age and cancer but the music thunders while being seemless as a result of years of perfecting the songs.
