Although music fans will be disappointed to hear of Heaven & Hell's cancellation, the sadder story is that Ronnie James Dio is finding the fight against the stomach cancer diagnosed at the end of 2009 a difficult one.

This statement appeared on the band's official site earlier this week:

The Guitarist team continues to send Ronnie and his family their very best wishes and hope he makes a speedy recovery.
