We thought it was all over, well apparently it’s not.
Ozzy Osbourne teased earlier this month that Black Sabbath could be in line for a potential reunion, and play at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in the Sabbath’s home town of Birmingham.
It was thought that the final show of the Birmingham metal gods was at Birmingham’s Genting Arena in February 2017, but, and here it comes, when Ozzy wqs asked recently if he would consider playing at the opening ceremony four years from now, Ozzy replied: “Yeah, that would be fantastic. With Black Sabbath or on my own. I’d like to do that. We’re all Brummies after all.”
Since that statement, Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi had hinted thats it’s something he would consider if it was put on the table.
Iommi said: “I think that it would be a great thing to do to help represent Birmingham. I’m up for it! Let’s see what happens!”
When previously asked if there was any chance of the band getting back together for one-off shows or studio work, Butler rsaid at the time: “Not very likely at all. I think Ozzy is going out on his farewell tour, so that will be him touring for the next two or three years. Adding: “So I don’t think there will be any chance of doing any one-offs or anything like that – which I’m fine with. We went out on a high, and it’s best not to drag it out.”
We’ll keep you posted.
