Heaven & Hell Pay Tribute To Ronnie James Dio At High Voltage Festival

Heaven & Hell members Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice performed a special tribute to their late bandmate, Ronnie James Dio last night(Saturday, July 24th) at the High Voltage festival at Victoria Park in London, UK.

According to a show review by Classic Rock Magazine, Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi and Vinny Appice sent shivers down the spine, as they delivered the ultimate tribute to the man who’s not there. It has to be said that singers Jorn Lande (MASTERPLAN) and Glenn Hughes (ex-DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) did a stunning job, not only reminding us all of the tragic loss – and there are some truly tearful moments – but also underlining the way Dio’s legacy has united us all. And when Wendy Dio comes on to read out a message out the cancer charity Stand Up And Shout, there are tears in almost every eye,. Mind you, Heaven & Hell also offer the day’s most surreal moment, when Phil Anselmo dashes on during the encore of Neon Knights and snatches the microphone from an aghast Hughes. Hat stand time."

According to, the set-list was as follows:

'The Mob Rules' (Jorn Lande vocals)
'I' (Jorn Lande vocals)
'Country Girl (Glenn Hughes vocals)
'Children of the Sea (Glenn Hughes vocals)
'Turn Up The Night (Jorn Lande vocals)
'Bible Black' (Glenn Hughes vocals)
'Die Young' (Jorn Lande vocals)
'Heaven and Hell' (Jorn Lande/Glenn Hughes vocals
'Neon Knights (Jorn Lande/Glenn Hughes vocals)
