Heaven & Hell Regroup With Hughes & Lande For Dio Tribute

Late rocker RONNIE JAMES DIO's HEAVEN & HELL bandmates are to stage a special one-off show in London as a tribute to the rocker.
Guitarist Tony Iommi took to the stage at the Metalhammer Golden God Awards in London on Monday (14Jun10) and announced Dio's longtime friend Glenn Hughes and Norwegian rocker Jorn Lande will front the supergroup at the High Voltage festival show on 24 July (10).
Hughes performed a musical tribute at Dio's funeral service in Los Angeles and Masterplan star Lande once released a tribute album to the late star.
Iommi told reporters he's still terribly upset about losing Dio, who lost his battle with stomach cancer on 16 May (10), and he hopes the tribute show will bring comfort to himself, Dio's family members, friends and mourning fans.
He says, "Ronnie's passing has left a huge hole. We hadn't anywhere near finished what we set out to do as a band together. He was so looking forward to the European tour and we hope this appearance will go some way to fulfilling that."
Heaven & Hell were forced to scrap a European tour this summer when Dio fell ill.
