According to a posting on Spain’s MariskalRock.com web site, Ronnie James Dio revealed during an appearance at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour event in London Monday night (Nov. 6) that HEAVEN AND HELL ? the new band featuring Dio alongside original BLACK SABBATH members Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward ? will headline next year’s Download festival, set to take place in June 2007 at Donington Park, Leicestershire, England. The group, named after the first post-Ozzy Osbourne SABBATH album, is expected to announce many other festival appearances during 2007.

Ronnie James Dio recently spent time in the U.K. “kicking around ideas” with Tony Iommi for a couple of new tracks to be included on SABBATH’s forthcoming box set, “Black Sabbath: The Dio Years”. In addition, according to Ozzy, a BLACK SABBATH tour with Osbourne, Iommi, Butler and Ward will kick off late 2007 to coincide with the group’s first new studio album featuring that lineup since 1978’s “Never Say Die!”

Dio was honored with the “Metal Guru” award at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour event, which was organized by Classic Rock magazine.
