Following the group's successful spring tour, HEAVEN AND HELL will again wow 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 the second U.S. leg 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 opening sets from ALICE COOPER and QUEENSRŸCHE.

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.

ALICE COOPER and QUEENSRŸCHE will join HEAVEN AND HELL on the road this fall creating one of the year's hardest-hitting triple bills. 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 autobiography, "Alice Cooper, Golf Monster", was released last month. QUEENSRŸCHE 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 will release 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.

I am probably in the minority but I am not that excited about this tour. Dio is a great singer but when I saw him live as a solo artist it was a boring show. Queensryche have lost it in my opinion. Cooper is the only one I would care to see again and I would prefer to see him on his own.
