Black Sabbath to play London's Hyde Park

Sabbath open series of Hyde Park shows in the Summer Time

Virtual Festivals - 31 March 2014

Midland metallers, Black Sabbath first formed in 1968 and, after spells apart and working under different line-ups, the original four members, Iommi, Butler, Osbourne, and Ward, announced plans in 2011 to reunite and tour a new album. '13', their first record since 1995's 'Forbidden' and first with Ozzy since 1978's 'Never Say Die!', was released late last year and went straight to number one in nine countries. Touring has continued for the band, with Tommy Clufetos stepping in on drumming duties, and the band are also confirmed for festival dates in France, Belgium and Austria this summer.

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, a series of live shows in the royal park, will open with their headline show on Saturday July 4th, joined by a full support bill which includes Faith No More and Soundgarden.

The band join an odd pair of dates already set in the calendar: McBusted on Sunday July 6 and Neil Young & Crazy Horse on Saturday July 12.

Shaky, rattled rock and roller Ozzy Osbourne, 65, said: "The first time I came to London I didn't have a pot to piss in and I spent the advance I got for the first album on a new pair of shoes and some Brut aftershave. Returning almost 50 years on, we are doing a bit better for ourselves so I may even splash out on some new aftershave before taking to the stage at Hyde Park, the most beautiful park in London that has opened its gates to so many legends in the past. We are beyond honoured to be allowed to put on a show and hope that the Royals will enjoy it!"
