Like Ozzy, Iommi also would like to do one final show with Bill Ward

Ozzy Osbourne recently said in an interview for his own internet show “The Madhouse Chronicles” that he felt that Black Sabbath was still an unfinished business because the original drummer Bill Ward wasn’t part of the final reunion and tour. So he said that he would love to do a final concert of the band with him.


The band’s guitarist Tony Iommi is currently promoting the box-set “Anno Domini”, which is composed by the albums with Tony Martin on vocals. Iommi was interviewed by Eddie Trunk (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) and was asked if he would also like to do that show with Bill and he also said it would be great.

“It’s a funny old thing, really. I mean, God, we’ll be 90 by the time we do that. (Laughs) It’d be a nice idea, but you’re gonna get everybody going, ‘Oh, they’re doing it for the money. They’re doing it for this, they’re doing it for that, they’re doing it…’ Well, it wouldn’t be. I mean, it’d be something that’d be a nice thing to actually do, but whether it happens will be another thing. But we’ll see. I mean, who knows?” Tony Iommi said.

He was also asked by Trunk if he misses performing live and he said: “It’s great to see the audience. I love to play live. But I have been playing. You obviously know about the Black Sabbath ballet. And it was great for me to go on at the end — I was playing on the end of the show, which was really good to get out and play live again. And then I did a gig with Johnny Depp when he came over (With Hollywood Vampires); I played on one of their shows, which was great.”

“It’s really good to be able to do that. But, yeah, for me, I’ve always loved playing live. But I have to look at it realistically at my age. I can’t go out and do a two-year tour like we were doing before. And to put something together like the original Sabbath or this or that or the other, you’ve gotta do it a long time because of the cost of everything. But it would be nice, yes, to do a one-off, if that ever happens, yeah,” Tony Iommi said.
