    black sabbath Black Sabbath cancels reunion tour dates

    Black Sabbath has scrapped many of its upcoming European tour dates due to Tony Iommi’s ongoing battle with lymphoma, according to an issued press release. Instead, the reunited outfit will perform just one show this summer — their headlining appearance at this year’s Download Festival – while a majority of other shows will now feature “Ozzy and Friends.”

    For these shows, frontman Ozzy Osbourne will be joined by Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler and longtime collaborator Zakk Wylde. In addition, Slash and other “special guests” will appear at select dates. Check out the tour’s schedule below.

    Despite the news, Black Sabbath — currently sans Bill Ward — remain at work on their first studio album in 33 years. They also plan to announce new tour dates soon.
