Remaining Members of Heaven & Hell to Play Dio Tribute
Heaven & Hell were initially scheduled to play to show with Dio. BlackSabbath.com is reporting that former Sabbath and Deep Purple vocalist Glenn Hughes and Masterplan's Jorn Lande will cover vocals in Dio's stead.
Hughes and Dio were lifelong friends, with Hughes performing a tribute to his friend at Dio's funeral service. Lande was a huge Dio fan, even releasing a Dio tribute album.
Proceeds from the July 24 gig will benefit the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. More information on the performance is available at the High Voltage Festival website.
