In one of the most anticipated classic rock concerts in recent memory, Black Sabbath reunited for an epic headlining performance at Lollapalooza 2012 in Chicago.
Anthony Kiedis, for his part, is one of those rare rock vocalists whose voice has actually improved with age. In fact, 25 years in it is quite possible that the Chili Peppers are one of the best live acts going. At the very least, they’re a band practically tailor-made to top a festival bill.
Lollapalooza’s first day featured an incredibly eclectic assortment of acts, but perhaps none seemed quite as left-of-center as, oddly, Black Sabbath.
In the mid-’90s, Sharon Osbourne tried to get Ozzy Osbourne on the Lollapalooza tour (at that time, Lollapalooza was an alternative rock/hip-hop summer tour). Apparently, the organizers of the festival said that Ozzy wouldn’t fit in on the bill. Sharon decided to start a metal-centric festival and launched Ozzfest. That tour was the impetus behind Ozzy rejoining Black Sabbath in 1997.
Perry has serious ambition for the weekend, so he’s not calling it quits when the festival wraps up at 11:00PM. Instead, his band, Jane’s Addiction, will throw an after show at the Aragon Ballroom. A ticket to the 18+ show runs a mere $15 and Perry expects the audience to be comprised of fans, friends, and musicians.
Over the weekend, Black Sabbath performed their first concert since reuniting (again) with singer Ozzy Osbourne at England’s O2 Academy. More significantly, it was their first concert since guitarist Tony Iommi had been treated for […]
Following Bill Ward’s lengthy statement detailing why he won’t be joining Black Sabbath for their upcoming concert performances, Black Sabbath have responded with their own much shorter statement.
Earlier this week, the Lollapalooza festival confirmed rumors that Black Sabbath would be co-headlining, along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Black Keys and Jack White. The metal legends have said that this would […]
After canceling a proposed tour due to guitarist Tony Iommi’s health issues, Black Sabbath hinted that they would play just one U.S. gig this year. Today, rumors have spread throughout Twitter and various blogs that the […]
