Heaven and Hell at High Voltage 2010
Surviving HEAVEN & HELL members Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice played a very special tribute to their fallen bandmate, Ronnie James Dio, earlier tonight (Saturday, July 24) at this year’s High Voltage festival at Victoria Park in London, England. The musicians were joined by legendary former DEEP PURPLE and BLACK SABBATH man Glenn Hughes and Norwegian vocalist Jorn Lande, who sings for power metallers MASTERPLAN and has just released his own tribute to Ronnie.
According to Braingell Radio’s very own Pitbull, Butler, Iommi and Appice “sent shivers down the spine, as they delivered the ultimate tribute to the man who’s not there.
“It has to be said that singers Jorn Lande and Glenn Hughes did a stunning job, not only reminding us all of the tragic loss — and there were some truly tearful moments — but also underlining the way Dio‘s legacy has united us all. And when [Ronnie‘s wife/manager] Wendy Dio came on to read out a message out the cancer charity Stand Up And Shout , there were tears in almost every eye.
“Mind you, HEAVEN & HELL also offered the day’s most surreal moment, when Phil Anselmo [DOWN, PANTERA] dashed on during the encore of ‘Neon Knights’ and snatched the microphone from an aghast Hughes .”
