The 2022 Edition of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games ended yesterday and as a part of the grandiose closing celebration there was a surprise appearance by Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi. This would be the first appearance by Ozzy on the live stage in about three years. The pair were joined by Tommy Clufetos on drums and Adam Wakeman on bass.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: What more can I add to this? I really don’t think there is a whole lot of discourse to add outside of how awesome it was to see two legendary members of Black Sabbath jamming out to one of their most classic of numbers “Paranoid”. According to some reports they also did “Iron Man” but this was the only Official Video posted on the Black Sabbath YouTube Channel. Everyone sounded great and the two legends were smiling back and forth during the song which had to send satisfying waves through the screen of those watching it like this and for sure to those who were witnessing this in person. I doubt we shall see one more go round for Sabbath in the touring sense but after these pandemic times and the way that the world is turning I surely wouldn’t mind it. What say you all? Chime in down below in the comments and I will see you again soon.
Oh no!!! Seems like legendary Crue drummer Tommy Lee has gotten injured and will sit out most of the set on the just started “Stadium Tour” with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Read on to the official announcement secured from the bands Facebook Page.
The Press Release:
OZZY OSBOURNE’s 2020 North American “NO MORE TOURS 2” has unfortunately been cancelled to allow OSBOURNE to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year. This decision was made to accommodate fans who’ve been holding tickets for rescheduled shows and have been asked to change plans, some multiple times. Following promotional obligations for his new ORDINARY MAN album (out February 21), OSBOURNE will head to Europe for additional treatments.
“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a shit year,” OSBOURNE said. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: All I can add to this is that I’m glad to find Ozzy on the mend and ready to kick some ass once again. I guess we should stay tuned for announcements about a return to the US for “final” dates. One can only hope that Judas Priest is brought along for those as well since that would be an awesome treat for the fans on this side of the pond. Chime in down below with your thoughts. See you next time.
