The band had to cancel their planned European tour after guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with the early stages of lymphoma, with singer Ozzy Osbourne playing several ‘Ozzy & Friends’ shows instead.

The Birmingham show, Download headline slot and a further headline appearance at Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival in August will go ahead however, with the band currently recording a new album with producer Rick Rubin.

Following contractual issues, original drummer Bill Ward’s involvement in the band’s reunion remains unclear.
