Black Sabbath Perform At Download Festival

Posted by on June 11, 2012


Less than a month after their intimate show at the O2 Academy, Black Sabbath closed out the Download Festival at Donington Park yesterday. The almost-reunion featured Ozzy, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Ozzy’s current drummer Tommy Clufetos filling in for Bill Ward, who’s attempts to rejoin the band have been well documented. This was Sabbath’s second of three shows they’re playing this Summer, with the third to happen in August at Lollapalooza.

Regardless of how frustrating it is that this isn’t a true reunion, it still must have been nice to see Tony Iommi, currently undergoing treatment for cancer, take the stage. According to NME, Ozzy kept stage banter to a minimum, but at one point, paid tribute to his guitarist, exclaiming, “The guy on the stage I’ve known for most of my life, and he’s one of the strongest guys I know. Let’s hear it for Mr Tony Iommi.”
