Following his stint behind the kit for Black Sabbath’s homecoming show in Birmingham, Ozzy & Friends drummer Tommy Clufetos is set to play with the band at their festival appearances at Download Festival 2012 and Lollapalooza 2012, following Bill Ward’s decision not to appear due to contractual wrangles.

Meanwhile, Download Festival organiser Andy Copping has ruled out any Tupac at Coachella-style hologram acts at the event.

Speaking to Metal Hammer, he said: "Absolutely not. If you're going to a live show, you want to see live bands with proper interaction. You're not going to see cartoons. I think the whole thing with Tupac and Dre and Snoop at Coachella was great, but it was a moment in time."

He continued: "Why would you want to go and see a fucking hologram? It doesn't sit comfortably with me at all. I don't get it."
