||BLACK SABBATH ADD SINGLE US DATE
28th February 2012
What became a one-off reunion of the original (or mostly original) Black Sabbath at this year's Download Festival has expanded, to one additional show.
Sharon Osbourne told the VH1 Radio Network that there will also be one appearance in the US: "They're gonna be doing one show in America this summer but I can't say yet (where and when it is) because we can't announce it, the promoters have to. But they are doing one show in August."

As far as whether drummer Bill Ward will be included, Sharon said: "We don't know yet, we really don't know. It's up to Bill. The door is open for him to join us, so it's up to him."
Sharon also went on to say that Sabbath already have around fifteen songs ready to record for the new album.
Sabbath had a full scale reunion tour planned which included all four original members but this was pulled when Tony Iommi was diagnosed with cancer for which he is now receiving treatment. The band kept the Download date with Ozzy And Friends taking over the rest of the dates.
Zakk Wylde will be playing guitar for Ozzy And Friends with Geezer Butler on bass and probably Tommy Clufetos on drums.
