zakk wylde

Black Label Society have cancelled two shows of their current North American tour due to Zakk Wylde's "severe illness".

The shows, at Les Foufounes Électriques in Montreal tonight, January 8th, and at The Opera House in Toronto tomorrow, Tuesday January 9th, will still take place with special guests Corrosion Of Conformity and Eyehategod both playing.

Corrosion Of Conformity announced the news via their Facebook page:

Black Label Society are touring in support of their tenth full-length album, 'Grimmest Hits', which will be released on January 19th.

The band released the latest track from 'Grimmest Hits' earlier today, 'Trampled Down Below', and you can have a listen right here. The other pre-release tracks are 'All That Once Shined' and the lead single, 'Room Of Nightmares', which you can hear below.

Zakk performed the American national anthem at the NBA game between the Chicago Bulls and the Toronto Raptors last Wednesday, 3rd January, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, saying afterwards:

"Big BL thanks to the Chicago Bulls for giving me the opportunity to play our national anthem before the game. As a proud son of a WWII veteran, it's always a privilege and honour to perform it."

Zakk reunited with Ozzy Osbourne for the resumption of the Black Sabbath frontman's solo career last year and they are confirmed for a Download headline slot in June, as well as several other prestigous festival appearances in what will be Ozzy's final world tour, a trek that will take him around the world from now through to 2020.
