Video Du Jour: Black Sabbath

Black Sabbath is back – almost. Earlier this year the original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward announced they would be making a new album and touring this year. However, guitarist Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma for which he’s required treatment and drummer Ward has stayed away due to contractual issues. So they’ve drastically scaled back any touring plans.

Instead of a full-fledged Sabbath tour, people in Europe are going to get a few dates and the group – with replacement drummer Tommy Clufetos – will make its only North America appearance this year at Lollapalooza, in Chicago. Gearing up for an appearance June 10 at the U.K. Download Festival, Sabbath played a warmup show recently at the O2 Academy in Birmingham, England. Here’s “Iron Man” from that show.
