Japan: Late 1985/early 1986

Source: Some confusion here, cover claims “OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA – August 13 1985 (Opening night)”, as does the bootleg page of the excellent dio.net website. However, their page for the Sacred Heart Tour lists the correct location and venue: Manteca, CA (it’s between Modesto and Stockton) at the Oakwood Lake Amphitheatre (attendance 3,600)


1627 A: Intro / King Of Rock And Roll / Like The Beat Of A Heart / Don’t Talk To Strangers
1627 B: Hungry For Heaven / The Last In Line / Holy Diver / The Last In Line / Drum Solo / Heaven And Hell
1628 A: Guitar Solo / Sacred Heart / Rock ‘N’ Roll Children
1628 B: Long Live Rock ‘N’ Roll / Man On The Silver Mountain / Rock ‘N’ Roll Children / Rainbow In The Dark / Stand Up And Shout


Incorrect location given on this torrent as well. I wonder if this was the source for the XL release.

  1. Hello, how are you?
    How do I get an mp3 copy of some albums that you have posted.
    I’m a fan of Rock and if you’re interested, I have a private collection with more than 15,000 cd’s in mp3 at your disposal.

    • Hi Nino. It’s a misconception that I own all of these albums – I don’t. Your best bet are the torrent sites dedicated to the sharing of non-copyright infringing live recordings. Of course, most of them allow lossless sharing only.
