Tony Iommi Glad Black Sabbath Is Back Together
Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi is happy to see the band’s original lineup back together.After Friday’s announcement of their reunion, he said viaTwitter that reteaming with Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Ward, and Geezer Butler is “like putting on an old glove. It’s fantastic.” He added in a post on his website that he can now “finally stop dodging questions.” Iommi has spent the past six month offering vague statements and denials about a possible Black Sabbath reunion. He adds in his website post that he’s been honest about the situation the entire time, saying “the truth is it has only come together properly in the last few days!”
Details on Black Sabbath’s upcoming album and tour haven’t been revealed yet. They’ve only said they’ll be working with producer Rick Rubin on the album, and the group will launch a world tour next summer with an appearance at England’s Download Festival in June.
