Heaven & Hell Rumour

UPDATE at 2:10PM: I got an email back from Geezer Butler about this story. I sent him the link, and he replied back with this:
“since the band is called h&h, then hopefully the set list will consist of entirely rjd era songs, including the 3 new songs.”
So it sounds to me like they are leaning that way, but haven’t settled on what they’re playing yet.

Original News post, pre-update:
In reading today’s news, I saw this little chestnut turn up online..

HEAVEN AND HELL — the new band featuring legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW) alongside original BLACK SABBATH members Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler, plus drummer Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH) — has confirmed to TotalRock that it will only be playing songs from the Dio era of BLACK SABBATH on its upcoming world tour. The group will put together its live show from the “Heaven And Hell”, “Mob Rules” and “Dehumanizer” albums, plus three new songs written and recorded for the upcoming compilation album “Black Sabbath: The Dio Years”.

This is hardly an Earth shattering announcement, this has been assumed since the project was first mentioned. Still, I’ve shot off a couple of emails to some relevant people asking about this. Hopefully they’ll say something, but it’s probably more likely they’ll say “we haven’t made up our minds yet on that”. Personally, I have a hard time thinking they’ve figured out their set list already when rehearsals haven’t started (to my knowledge).
One other thing that bugs me about articles like this are news reports that claim something is “confirmed” and then don’t back up HOW they confirmed it. My point is don’t believe everything you read as news just because someone used the word confirmed. Also, having said that, this is probably what will happen, but I just get irked at the liberal usage of “confirmed” in news stories.
