    Heaven & Hell Tribute to Dio show?

    This should be interesting. From Black-sabbath.com:

    Heaven & Hell were set to be on the road in Europe this summer when news came through that despite the amazing progress he was making Ronnie wouldn't be well enough to tour and those shows were canceled. But now, remaining members Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice are set to play a one off show to celebrate his life and work. The band will be completed by Glenn Hughes and Jorn Lande who will both contribute vocals. Former Deep Purple / Black Sabbath star Glenn Hughes was a close friend of Ronnie's for many years and performed a musical tribute at Ronnie's funeral service in Los Angeles. Norwegian Jorn Lande is best known in the UK as the vocalist for power metal band Masterplan, he has also released many solo albums including a tribute to Ronnie. It promises to be a fitting celebration to a man that the metal scene owes so much.

    At first, I was wondering about Jorn Lande making the thing sound like a Helloween Side-project. Then I listened to his cover of Stargazer:

    Pretty badass.

    I'm hoping they record it. Shame Glen Hughes is invovled, tho.
    I play bass in a band called Weaponlord.

    I also play bass in a band called Northern Crown.

    I used to play bass in a band called Faethom.

    Also, of note:

    Black-sabbath.com has a video from what ended up being Ronnie's last show:

    I really like the two Iommi albums with Hughes, so I'll be eagerly awaiting the DVD of this

    I'm sure they didn't even consider asking Ozzy.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.
