Touring Band

Well, it was supposed to be this:

  • Ronnie James Dio – Vocals
  • Tony Iommi – Guitar
  • Geezer Butler – Bass
  • Vinny Appice  – Drums
  • Scott Warren – Keyboards
Unfortunately, Ronnie James Dio’s cancer problems and later death caused the cancellation of the tour.  It was a bit of an eyebrow raiser when the dates were announced, as Ronnie was undergoing treatments already.  However, the band seemed confident at the time it would come off.  On May 4th 2010, Heaven & Hell issued the following statement:

“We have to announce that all forthcoming Heaven & Hell European shows have been canceled as sadly Ronnie isn’t well enough to tour this summer. We hope that everyone understands and want to thank fans and industry colleagues for their continuing support at this time.”

Sadly, Ronnie died on May 16th.  About a month later, on June 15th, it was announced that one of the previously announced concerts was still going to happen; the one on July 24th.  It was officially billed as “Heaven & Hell”, but had Glenn Hughes & Jorn Lande on vocals in place of the late Ronnie James Dio.  That concert was filmed, but when/if it gets released is unknown.
