If you like gambling here is a safe bet. Go see Black Sabbath somewhere on their North American Tour. The dates are listed below.
The safe bet is this. Ozzy will prolly bail on some of the shows due to “his voice”. Remember the Ozzfestivals? I was at one of teh several that he bailed on. Safe bet number 2. Literally # 2. Ozzy will have a row full of floor teleprompters in front of him and he will read off the lyrics to the songs he can’t remember and the band will have to pace themselves and follow his timing to keep him in the grove….It’s heavy metal karaoke with canned vocals..
Tony Iommi is dealing with cancer and has to go home every few weeks to deal with treatment. Many props to him for sticking it out despite his sickness and is “on deck”. Ozzy however, is way past cooked or whatever he is and is a puppet of his younger self. Sad to say. Black Sabbath are legends. If Ozzy had taken better care of himself it would the show of shows to see…
Geezer is holding down the fort and Bill Ward isn’t there.
