Heaven & Hell PreSale

Ok ladies...

I pulled this off a blog post from Dio's myspace, so it should be correct...

The presale for all Heaven & Hell shows in August, except Baltimore, begins Wednesday May 6 at 10AM local time at or, depending on the market.

The password for all presales is DEVIL!!!!

Tickets for here in Seattle are $40 to $80 each. Damn expensive, but I have to hear Dio fronted Sabbath before I die, so I'll be coughing up the cash for it.
