Black Sabbath Confirms 2013 European Tour
Black Sabbath’s world tour in support of their upcoming album ’13’ is beginning to take shape. The band, which just completed a long-awaited reunion project with original singer Ozzy Osbourne, will play New Zealand, Australia and Japan later this month. Now, a series of 15 European shows have been confirmed, beginning November 20.
Confirmed European dates are included below. North American shows are expected for July and August.
Black Sabbath played three dates last year, with Osbourne’s drummer Tony Clufetos filling in for co-founding member Bill Ward, after his contract talks stalled. Rage Against the Machine’s Brad Wilks played drums as part of these new sessions. ’13,’ the first Sabbath album to include Osbourne, guitairist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler since 1978’s ‘Never Say Die,’ is due on June 11 via Vertigo/Universal Republic.
