Black Sabbath To Tour Europe
The Black Sabbath tour will take in dates in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Germany, France, Italy, and the Czech Republic before wrapping up with a run of dates in the UK, including a final tour date in the band's hometown of Birmingham.
Before then though, the band is touring New Zealand, Australia and Japan later this month, then hitting North America in July and August.
Guitarist Tony Iommi underwent cancer treatment last year, with recording sessions being work in around Iommi's schedule. The album features original members Iommi, Geezer Butler and Ozzy Osbourne as well as drummer Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave). The band has not yet revealed who will occupy the drum stool during this month's dates, but Ozzy's touring drummer Tommy Clufetos manned the drum kit during the three shows the band played last year.
And here's some suitably Sabbath-related news: Italian horror classic Black Sabbath, which of course inspired the band's name, is being released on DVD and Blu-Ray later this month.
