The legendary guitarist Tony Iommi told Birmingham Live about the possibility of the band getting together for the opening of the Commomwealth games.
“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!”
Iommi previously reported it was “possible” that they could make festival appearances following their farewell tour – although in January, bassist Geezer Butler seemed to pour cold water on the idea.
“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.
“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.”
