HEAVEN & HELL: Playing Dio Tribute Show with Guest Vocalists
Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Vinny Appice, the surviving members of HEAVEN & HELL, will be play Classic Rock Magazine’s High Voltage Festival as a tribute to Ronnie James Dio. The 2 day event will be held at London’s Victoria Park on July 24 and 25.
Heaven & Hell will be joined by guest vocalists Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze) and Jorn Lande (Masterplan) for the special appearance.
Heaven And Hell bassist Geezer Butler says:
“It’s going to be a very emotional occasion. Ronnie loved his fans like no one else I know – and they loved him. It will be a privilege doing a gig in honour of his memory, and to help towards his charity. Above all, I hope it encourages people to have regular check-ups for this disease. Early detection is vital, and greatly improves the chance of a cure. I know everyone has heard that a million times before, but seeing one of your best friends die because we all think we’re immune from this disease, really brings it home. Do it for yourself, your family, your friends. Ronnie would be proud of you.”
