Shortly after revealing that fans will get to hear a new song later this week, Black Sabbath revealed what fans in North America have been waiting for: tour dates. There’s only one catch – they’ve only announced four dates for the summer thus far.
These North American shows include three U.S. dates and the Toronto date that leaked last month. The U.S. dates include Holmdel, NJ, Los Angeles and Seattle. Tickets for all four shows go on sale to the public starting April 20, while fans can gain access to a pre-sale starting April 18 by RSVP’ing to this Facebook event.
It’s unclear if Black Sabbath will announce more shows for the U.S. (Geezer Butler certainly seemed to hint at extensive touring, and they are playing a fair amount of European shows). Then again, we also wouldn’t be surprised if the band decides to limit its touring considering Tony Iommi’s continuing battle with lymphoma. What remains to be seen, though, is who will be behind the kit for the tour (unless CSI gave that answer away)?
