GODS OF METAL 2012: Tony Iommi won’t make it, OZZY & FRIENDS will be headling June 24
Reunited BLACK SABBATH – who late last year confirmed the recording of their first new album in more than 33 years and a worldwide headlining tour – have had to put some plans on hold due to Tony Iommi’s battle with lymphoma. Tony unfortunately won’t be able for touring and deserves all our sympathy and our deepest love, wishing him a speedy recovery. OZZY OSBOURNE will now perform the majority of the previously scheduled BLACK SABBATH dates billed as OZZY & FRIENDS. These “first ever” OZZY & FRIENDS shows will feature appearances by “special guest” musicians including GEEZER BUTLER (who will join Ozzy for a special BLACK SABBATH set as a show of respect and support to their friend, Tony Iommi) and longtime former OZZY band member Zakk Wylde.
