Some of Sweden's finest heavy metal musicians will gather to pay tribute to Ronnie James Dio during this fall's edition of the Sweden Rock Cruise, set to sail on October 7, 2010 from Stockholm, Sweden for Åbo, Finland and return the following day. There will be a long tribute concert with a number of guest musicians performing classic songs from Dio's career with a main band consisting of members of Lion's Share.

So far the following artists have been confirmed to perform with Lion's Share at the event:

* Mikael Åkerfeldt (OpethP)
* Joacim Cans (Hammerfall)
* Björn Gelotte (In Flames)
* Ian Haugland (Europe)
* Messiah Marcolin (ex-Candlemass)
* Johan Edlund (Tiamat)
* Mike Wead (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Bibleblack)

The show will end with all artists performing HEAR 'N AID's "Stars" (Dio was behind the HEAR N' AID project, a collection of metal artists who recorded the track "Stars" in 1985 to raise funds for African famine relief.)

On the cruise, Sweden Rock Magazine will donate SEK 25,000 to the Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, set up by Ronnie James Dio's wife Wendy Dio. Everyone attending the cruise can donate money, which will be sent to this cancer fund.
