High Voltage Scoop: Geezer Butler On Dio Tribute
Geezer Butler is dreading the Heaven & Hell tribute to the late Ronnie James Dio at High Voltage.
Talking exclusively to Classic Rock, the bassist said:
“It’s gonna be very emotional doing this set with different singers [Glenn Hughes and Jorn Lande], and it will very strange being on stage without Ronnie. But Wendy Dio told us that, if he could, then Ronnie would certainly have given this his blessing.”
As the band prepare to go into rehearsals for this special set, Butler added:
“What we’ll do is a typical Heaven & Hell set as we’ve been touring with it recently. But it’s the only time we’ll do this. It won’t happen again.”
Heave & Hell will perform this tribute set on the main stage at High Voltage in London’s Victoria Park on July 24.
