You would think it would be hard for Ronnie James Dio to have to cancel a show in 2019, considering he's been dead since 2010.
His hologram, though? Another story.
"Dio Returns," a hologram show featuring the late metal hero that was scheduled to play the Palladium in St. Petersburg Sunday night, has been canceled due to technical difficulties.
"Due to the size and scope of the production, the show cannot go on as planned," promoters Ruth Eckerd Hall said in a statement. "Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase."
The official announcement came down late Saturday afternoon. St. Petersburg ticketholders were offered the chance to see the show that night in Orlando instead, but at this point, it'll just be a refund.
