Icon33 Tribute to Dio - Joe Lynn Turner with School of Rock

JUNE 17-19

Students attending the SCHOOL OF ROCK programs in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania will have an opportunity to share a studio and stage with legendary rock singer/guitarist Joe Lynn Turner, when he serves as guest professor and performer with the All-Stars at three locations in June: Downington PA 6/17, Bergen County, NJ 6/18 and New York City 6/19. Included in the set list for the shows, the students and Turner will perform a tribute to his former Rainbow band mate who recently passed away, Ronnie James Dio.

Turner's career highlights in the heavy metal/rock world include performing and/or recording with Rainbow, Bob Daisley and Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne), Brian Johnson (AC/DC), Yngwie Malmsteen and Deep Purple.

Turner excitedly agreed to take on the role of guest professor, saying:

I wish there was a School of Rock when I was growing up... what a fantastic idea! I wanted to work with the students way before this but my touring schedule did not allow, so I am so excited to have this opportunity to rock out and share my experience. It will be a blast!!?

Tickets for the three shows are $5.00 for School of Rock members and $10.00 for general admission at the door.

This is good news. A great project in my opinion. Also a tribute to the late great Ronnie James Dio, by another great singer Joe Lynn Turner. I have seen Joe recently a few times with Over The Rainbow and he was superb. A wise man to have as a music teacher

Hmm, I wonder if any of the money they're grossing is going towards the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund - they're using DIO's name to promote the shows, aren't they?

I hope some money goes to the Stand up and shout fund. But also it is very good that young music students get the opportunity to get in touch with the hard rock roots: To learn about the legend Dio. When the teacher is also a very great singer (different than Dio, but great) then I hope it will be a great experience for them.
