Black Sabbath's Hyde Park Show Could Be Their Last Ever
Tony Iommi has revealed their gigging days may be over after their Hyde Park show this summer...
Black Sabbath’s Hyde Park show later this year could be their last ever.
The band reformed last year for new album 13, and have been touring the record ever since.
However despite winning a Grammy earlier this year, Tony Iommi has admitted their British Summer Time Series show at London’s Hyde Park could be the end of their gigging days.
‘It could be the last ever Sabbath show,’ he told Metal Hammer. ‘I don’t want it to be, but there’s nothing really planned touring-wise after that show, so for all we know that could be it really.'
‘To be honest I don’t want to be touring to this extent too much longer, because it makes me feel so bad.’
‘I’m at a stage now where I have no support, which means I have to see whether the cancer is coming back or if it’s still there, or what,’ he said.
‘I just don’t know. It’s a bit of a worry. After we finish this tour I’ll go in and have a scan, so we’ll see what shows up.’
Black Sabbath reached number one in the UK with their latest album just last year, making it their first chart hit in just under 43 years.
