Black Sabbath Cancels Upcoming Reunion Tour

Newly reunited Black Sabbath has cancelled their upcoming European tour dates due to Tony Iommi’s fight with lymphoma.  Last month Iommi announced that he was in the early stages of the disease.

The band will make one appearance this Summer’s Download Festival. The reminder of the tour dates will continue under the moniker “Ozzy and Friends” and will include frontman Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Osbourne’s longtime friend and guitarist, Zakk Wylde. Other guest are slated to make appearances.

Black Sabbath will continue to work on highly anticipated album, and plan to announce new tour dates in the future. Check out the tour dates below (via Consequence of Sound)
