Tony Iommi: Heaven & Hell Tribute To Dio At High Voltage Is One-Off
Tony Iommi has told Classic Rock that Heaven & Hell’s tribute set for Ronnie James Dio at High Voltage is a one-off.
“We thought it would be nice to do a final thing for Ronnie,’ says guitarist Iommi. ‘To be honest, we didn’t expect to be playing again. It’s certainly going to be a strange feeling.”
Heaven & Hell – Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Vinny Appice – will play the main stage at High Voltage on July 24. They’ll be joined by vocalists Glenn Hughes and Jorn Lande.
“This is going to be the only one,” adds Iommi. “It would have been good, I suppose, for other people to have seen it, but this is something that we needed to do for ourselves as well.”
