TONY IOMMI: RONNIE JAMES DIO Is 'Probably A Lot More Professional' Than OZZY OSBOURNE
Germany's Rockhaus TV recently conducted an interview with legendary heavy metal guitarist Tony Iommi (BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL). Watch the chat at this location. It can also be seen below.
HEAVEN & HELL will bring its wicked world tour to North America for a select number of shows this August. The band will start its summer headlining music festivals across Europe before bringing its macabre stage show of metal classics to North America starting on August 7 in Vancouver. COHEED AND CAMBRIA will provide support on all shows except the Seattle date on August 8, which will feature NEUROSIS in the supporting slot.
"The Devil You Know", the new album from HEAVEN & HELL, sold 30,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Three years ago, Dio, Iommi, Butler and Appice reunited to record a trio of new songs for Rhino's "Black Sabbath: The Dio Years" before launching a highly anticipated and greatly acclaimed world tour under their new moniker HEAVEN & HELL. That set has since gone on to sell more than 140,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
