Black Sabbath Cancel Reunion Tour, Ozzy, Slash and Zakk Wylde To Fill In

(Gibson) Black Sabbath have cancelled almost all of their planned 2012 tour, due to Tony Iommi's health issues. The legendary guitarist is currently being treated for cancer and will not be well enough to tour with the metal greats.

"Sabbath have had to put some plans on hold due to Tony Iommi's battle with lymphoma," says a statement on the band's Facebook. "At this time, Black Sabbath will perform only one show of this summer's previously scheduled European tour. It will take place Sunday, June 10 at the U.K.'s Download Festival."

Instead of a Sabbath tour, frontman Ozzy Osbourne will be hitting the road with an "Ozzy & Friends" show. The singer will be joined by Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, along with former touring mate/guitar great Zakk Wylde and guitar icon Slash. more on this story
