Tony Iommi Says Black Sabbath Will Tour in 2013
Tony Iommi has revealed that Black Sabbath will indeed be touring to support their upcoming album next year. The Sabbath guitatist posted a thank you to fans on his official website for their support through the year as he has fought cancer and revealed that they will be touring:
“What a year! Certainly not the one I was expecting. Thanks to you all for your massive help and support, it was very encouraging. I’m still working on the album and managed to play three shows, not bad given the news a year ago. I’m looking forward to next year, seeing what you think of the record and touring as much as we’re able…My Best Wishes to you all, I hope you have a great Christmas and New Year, most of all, stay positive.”
The album, their first with the original lineup since 1978, is set for release in April.
