The “will he or won’t he” saga with Bill Ward carries on. Tony Iommi’s cancer treatments carry on.. Yet the business of Black Sabbath doesn’t.
Word popped up today that Black Sabbath might be playing a lone date in the US in August. Where? Who knows? Who’s on drums? Who knows? But a story this morning seems to say that. In it contains a few words from Sharon Osbourne..
“They’re gonna be doing one show in America this summer but I can’t say yet because we can’t announce it, the promoters have to, but they are doing one show in August here together.”
My first reaction of course was to contact band management, which I did. The response I got was pretty much along the lines of what was in this quite, which was “can’t say yet because we can’t announce it”.. So OK, my gut feeling is that this probably will happen. But it’ll be HIGHLY DEPENDENT on what Tony Iommi’s condition is. Whether he’s capable of flying is unknown. One would think so, given this, plus it’s six months down the road, so presumably he should be in better shape then (if you know anyone who is actively going through chemo, you know what it can do to their stamina and whatnot).
We’ll find out once these “promoters” announce whatever they’re going to announce
Anyone know any festivals going on in August as to where this lone gig might be? :)
