Old rocker's coming to Alabama -- NOT!

OK, follow this for a moment.

A Birmingham-based concert promoter, along with another in Texas, have been receiving e-mails from someone saying they represent Ronnie James Dio, the elfish rock singer who's toured with Black Sabbath, Rainbow and his own band.

Problem is, the dude's not on tour. Whole thing is a scam.

Which means this guy in Birmingham -- not in LA or NY or some other music center of the U.S. -- helped break up this roving concert scam that's apparently been more than successful recently.

Pollstar's got the whole story here.
