Last in Line featuring Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell alongside fellow founding Dio members and Andrew Freeman on vocals will play Buffalo this Thursday (March 30) and Poughkeepsie this Friday (March 31).
The Dio offshoot band Last In Line released their debut album Heavy Crown last year via Frontiers Music Srl. According to, the cd was recorded at Southern California studio and produced by Jeff Pilson, a veteran bassist who plays with Foreigner and formerly of Dokken, Dio, and many other bands. Singer Andrew Freeman (a former Pine Bush, NY resident) most recently performed in the Las Vegas production “Raiding The Rock Vault” and previously performed in George Lynch’s Lynch Mob and The Offspring among others. In addition to Vivian Campbell on guitar and Andrew Freeman on vocals, the band includes drummer Vinny Appice, bassist Phil Soussan, and keyboardist Erik Norlander. Original bassist for the band, Jimmy Bain passed away last year after a battle with lung cancer.
