(Gibson) The original lineup of Black Sabbath have put tour plans on hold, while guitarist Tony Iommi recovers from treatment for lymphoma.

So, Ozzy Osbourne (and Friends) will tour instead. Sabbath bassist/lyricist Geezer Butler will join Ozzy for a Sabbath-songs set. Zakk Wylde is onboard to play guitar. In addition, Ozzy will be accompanied by Slash at select shows, with other "special guests" set to join the tour at various stops along the way. The tour will take place this summer, only in Europe.

Wylde says, "[Current Ozzy band members] Gus G., Blasko and Tommy [Clufetos] are coming out and doing a bunch of tunes, then I come out with Blasko and Tommy and we end up doing a bunch of stuff from the era when I was with 'the boss' [Ozzy], from No Rest for the Wicked.. all the way through everything I've ever done with him. Then Geezer comes out and we do a bunch of Sabbath stuff and at the end, Slash and everybody Geezer, Slash, Gus and we all play 'Paranoid'." more on this story
