Black Sabbath Legend Robbed At Dio Tribute Concert

(Gibson) Black-Sabbath.com is reporting that Tony Iommi's Gibson guitar has been stolen. The Gibson SG has been Iommi's signature instrument since his early days with Black Sabbath. He is one of the guitar model's best-known players. The Black Sabbath and Heaven and Hell guitarist posted this statement on the website:

"Sadly, my red Custom Shop Iommi SG was stolen at the tribute show Heaven and Hell performed at High Voltage on July 24th [in tribute to the late Ronnie James Dio]. If you have any information or leads please let us know, we are offering a reward."

Heaven and Hell members Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinnie Appice played a tribute show to their late frontman Ronnie James Dio last month at the High Voltage Festival in London. Jorn Lande (Masterplan) and Glenn Hughes (ex-Deep Purple, ex-Black Sabbath) filled in on vocals. All proceeds went to benefit the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. -
