Cannock-born rock star Glenn Hughes is to stand in for singer Ronnie James Dio in a special tribute to the heavy metal frontman who died in May.
Hughes, former bassist and singer with Deep Purple, will appear with Dio’s band Heaven & Hell, featuring members of the original Black Sabbath, at the High Voltage festival at Victoria Park in London, UK on Saturday, July 24th.
Dio, who died of stomach cancer on May 16, had been due to perform with Heaven & Hell at the event.
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 Hughes, who has also sung in Black Sabbath, and Norwegian singer Jorn Lande, who will both contribute vocals.
The band will use the event to raise funds for the Ronnie James Dio “Stand Up And Shout” Cancer Fund, which is committed to the early detection and prevention of cancer.
Hughes was a close friend of Dio’s for many years and performed a musical tribute at his funeral service in Los Angeles.
