(Classic Rock) Tony Iommi says it's "possible" that Black Sabbath could record another album and make festival appearances after their farewell tour finishes.

The metal icons' The End trek will be completed with two shows in their home city of Birmingham on February 2 and 4, bringing their career on the road to an end after 49 years of action.

One of the main reasons for calling a halt is the guitarist's health concerns after his battle against cancer. Iommi tells Talk Is Jericho: "I've been asked, 'What are you going to do after this?' Well, I don't know. As long as it's not world touring, I'm all right. It's just the traveling that gets me. Since I was ill, it really does affect me now."

He adds: "I don't want to stop playing. For me, it's the touring now. There's a day when you've got to go, 'Look, we've done it for almost 50 years. It's time to re-look at it."

Asked about the chance of festival appearances in the future, Iommi says: "I wouldn't write that off, if one day that came about. That's possible. Or even doing an album, because then you're in one place. But I don't know if that would happen." Read more here.
