Sharon Osbourne let it slip earlier this month that Black Sabbath would be touring Australia next year. And this morning, dates for a spring trek in Australia were officially announced.
The reunited Black Sabbath will be performing down under in April/May. Now this doesn’t really make much of a difference for most of our readers, that is unless you either live or plan on visiting Australia this spring. However, so far Sabbath has only played one U.S. festival and two U.K. shows since reuniting due to Tony Iommi’s battle with cancer. So the fact that they’ve announced this Australian trek is a good sign that more could follow. Plus, as our buds at Metal Injection revealed, Sabbath is making good headway with recording the new album.
We’ll have to wait and see, though, if this trek will coincide with Ozzfest Japan (we’d take a guess that it will). In case you plan on being down under this spring, dates for Black Sabbath’s Australian tour can be seen after the jump.
