Black Sabbath’s Hyde Park performance in July 2014 to be their last?

Iconic English rockers Black Sabbath might be leaving the music scene, as the band’s guitarist Tony Iommi has stated that their upcoming performance in Hyde Park could be their last. The ‘Heaven and Hell’ musicians are getting ready to perform at London’s Hyde Park on July 4, 2014 – as part of the British Summer Time series – however, Iommi said that the legendary musicians have no plans to go on tour after that show.

Iommi said, “It could be the last ever Sabbath show. I don’t want it to be, but there’s nothing really planned touring-wise after that show, so for all we know that could be it really.” The famous guitarist went on to discuss how his lymphoma diagnosis in 2012 is having an effect on his career, though he completed the treatment for it in 2014.

He admitted that he does not want to tour to this extent too much longer, as it makes him feel very bad. He said that he will go for a scan following the band’s upcoming performance and then he will see what shows up.

The famous heavy metal band’s latest record, titled ’13’ managed to top the UK charts in 2013 and Black Sabbath have been on tour ever since.
