Tony Iommi doesn’t know what Ozzy Osbourne means by saying he “didn’t have a great time” on Black Sabbath’s farewell tour.
“I’ve spent 9 or 10 years on Sabbath, but I’ve been away for more than 30 years, I’m just a singer, alone, I do what I want, I was getting bad vibes from them for being Ozzy. could I be? ” Ozzy told The Inquirer.
Asked if he had anything to say about Ozzy’s comments, Iommi said:
“I saw that, but I don’t know what he means. I had some fantastic moments on the last tour playing with the guys, and Ozzy never said anything to me. He seemed to be enjoying himself and we laughed a lot, so I don’t know. I think his quote must have been taken out of context.”
The End tour
The End Tour was Black Sabbath’s farewell tour, featuring founding members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler. The tour concluded Sabbath’s 40+ year career. The final show was 4 February 2017, in their home city of Birmingham, UK.
Initial dates were announced in a video posted on the band’s YouTube channel on 3 September 2015 with more dates announced in October 2015. As with the previous tour, Tommy Clufetos filled in for original drummer Bill Ward, due to the latter’s departure and animosity towards singer Ozzy Osbourne. An eight-track EP, entitled The End, was released to coincide with this tour and was only available at shows. Rival Sons were the sole support act for all of Black Sabbath’s headlining shows. Osbourne said of the farewell tour, “this is it, it’s definitely run its course”.
