The Return of Heaven And Hell

Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice Announce Final North American Dates of Their Heralded Reunion Tour; Special Guest Star Alice Cooper Will Also Appear on the Tour; Queensrÿche Rounds Out the Legendary Bill of Rock Royalty Set to Begin September 5; Tickets for Many of the Eight Newly Added Dates Go on Sale the Weekend of July 13

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - Following the group's successful spring tour, Heaven And Hell will again wow North American audiences with its bewitching stage set and truly timeless, classic metal as Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice return for a second round of North American dates as part of the quartet's continuing world tour. Set to launch on September 5, Heaven And Hell's tour will stop in many cities not included on the previous leg and will feature special guest star Alice Cooper on all but one date. Queensrÿche will serve as the opening act for all shows. Tickets for most of the eight newly added dates will go on sale the weekend of July 13. There will also be a special fan presale beginning Wednesday, July 11 at 12 Noon EDT at http://heavenandhell.frontgatetickets.com.

Last year, the iconic quartet reconvened to record a trio of songs for "Black Sabbath: The Dio Years," a compilation that features essential songs by the short-lived, but beloved incarnation of Black Sabbath fronted by Dio. Dubbing the group Heaven And Hell after one of its signature hits, the band launched a much-anticipated world tour earlier this year. The group celebrated its first U.S. concert in 15 years with a sold-out performance at Radio City Music Hall. Recorded and filmed in its entirety, Rhino captured the historic concert for a CD and DVD release, "Heaven And Hell Live From Radio City Music Hall," set for an August 28 release.

Special guest star Alice Cooper will join Heaven And Hell on the road. In addition to his duties as a rock 'n' roll icon, Cooper is the host of the syndicated "Nights With Alice Cooper" radio show. Cooper's golf-themed memoir, "Alice Cooper, Golf Monster," was released earlier this year.

Queensrÿche rounds out the hard-hitting triple bill. The band is riding high on the success of last year's "Operation: mindcrime II" album and tour, which brought the group's complete Mindcrime saga to the stage in its entirety. On July 3, Rhino released CD and DVD versions of "Mindcrime At The Moore," which feature Queensrÿche's performance in front of its hometown crowd at Moore Theatre in Seattle.
