Heaven & Hell, the quartet of Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Vinny Appice, will bring their wicked world tour to North America for a select number of shows this August. The band will start their summer headlining music festivals across Europe before bringing their macabre stage show of metal classics to North America starting on August 7th in Vancouver. Tickets for most shows go on sale the weekend of May 8th. There will also be a presale for all shows, except Baltimore, beginning May 6th at 10 AM local time. COHEED AND CAMBRIA will provide support on all shows except the Seattle date on August 8th, which will feature NEUROSIS in the supporting slot.
On April 28th, Heaven & Hell released their first album in 17 years, The Devil You Know, and the highly anticipated set did not disappoint. The band plans to mix in several tracks from The Devil You Know into their set of Dio-era BLACK SABBATH classics.
Heaven & Hell began writing for The Devil You Know last year, first in England at Iommi's home studio and later in Los Angeles at Dio's studio.
"The band had gotten too good to just walk away," Dio says. "We wanted to show people that we were still capable of giving them new music that measured up to what we'd done in the past."
With that goal in mind, the band hit the Rockfield Studios in Wales last winter and the result is the 10-song epic The Devil You Know.
Coheed And Cambria bring their unique blend of prog and metal as the supporting act on the tour. The band just released their Neverender box set. The 4-CD/5-DVD collection chronicles a series of 2008 shows where the band performed all four of their albums in the same city on consecutive nights.
