Heaven & Hell Injury

(Blabbermouth) According to Sergi Ramos of The Metal Circus, Heaven & Hell was forced to cancel its appearance Sunday night (June 21) at the Metalway Festival in Zaragoza, Spain due to back pain suffered by guitarist Tony Iommi.

Ramos tells Blabbermouth.Net, "The stage was already set with all [Heaven & Hell's] gear and backline, and after a 45-minute delay in the showstart, an ambulance was called to the backstage area and the techs started dismantling their stage gear. There was a big confusion for about half an hour, and afterwards a member of the organization [came up on stage and] explained what happened to Tony, telling [the crowd] that the show wasn't cancelled yet [and] that a doctor was trying to determine whether he could go on or not.

"After a few minutes, while the next band [Saxon] was setting up their stage gear, Ronnie James Dio, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice appeared on stage to adressed the issue in front of the crowd. Ronnie kneeled on stage as if to say 'sorry' and proceeded to tell the crowd that the show could not go on due to Tony's back problem and that they would make it up at another time and place when it's possible."
