First Official Tour 2007 Confirmation

The official word came down on the Canadian dates from band management today. Here’s the detail from their newsletter:

Putting to bed the longstanding rumours of a reunion tour, Heaven and Hell have announced their first tour dates for 2007. The tour will feature 11 Canadian shows, along with an exciting one-night-only performance at one of the most prestigious venues in the world, New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Heaven and Hell reunites Tony Iommi with Ronnie James Dio, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice for the first time in 15 years.
Currently there are 12 scheduled stops, starting on March 11 in Vancouver and ending on March 30 in New York City. The ‘Heaven And Hell’ world tour will continue until the end of the year with shows in the US, Asia and Europe. Additional dates will be announced shortly.
Multi-platinum recording artist Megadeth will be joining the tour, and previewing never before heard material from their upcoming release on Roadrunner Records, United Abominations. The tour also brings the return of Down, featuring Phil Anselmo and Rex Brown from Pantera, as well as Pepper Keenan of COC. This will undisputedly be the most anticipated rock tour of 2007.
The heavy metal icons are also scheduled to release a new anthology entitled Black Sabbath: The Dio Years. Anticipated release date is 3rd April 2007 on Rhino/Warner Bros. Records.

The camp also released ticket pre-sale information, here are those details:

As we said in our mailout last week, we will be running a presale facility for fans of Tony and Heaven & Hell. The presale will start on Wednesday, 24th January 2007 at 12 noon EST (which is 5pm UK time), two days before the tickets go on general sale.
To access the presale site go to:
You will need to register for the site to purchase tickets. Tickets are limited to 6 per person. Please note that this presale is for fans of all four members of Heaven & Hell, not just members, so we’re expecting considerable demand for the tickets, particularly for the New York show, and can’t guarantee that everyone will be successful. Good luck!

Please note these are the only confirmed tour dates. There are some European festival dates that are reported to be on sale, but to date, these dates above are the only confirmed dates from band management. Please Please PLEASE don’t email me asking me what the rest of the dates are. I DO NOT HAVE ANY MORE. If you email me asking for more dates, your email will be ignored. Sorry to sound so harsh, but I get people begging me for the “inside info”, or “the real list” or something like that. I do not have time to deal with all of that. If I hear anything, I’ll post it. That honestly is all the info there is for now.
Here are the other rumoured European festival dates:
2 – 3 – Milan, Italy at Gods Of Metal Festival
6 Р9 РȘlvesborg, Sweden at Sweden Rock Festival
9 – Tampere, Finland at Sauna Open Air Festival
10 – Helsinki, Finland at Jäähallissa
19 – Warszawa, Poland at Torwar
20 – Katowice, Poland at Spodek Hall
22 – 23 – Balingen, Germany at Bang Your Head!!! Festival
Anything else besides this, AND I MEAN ANYTHING has yet to be decided or announced. Again, please don’t email me asking for more dates – if I had them, I’d post them.
