Too bad. Ozzy can't sing anymore so looks like Oz is gonna be disappointed.

So they never toured Australia even with Dio at the mic? that sounds weird. Yet another reason not to live in Australia

I'd rather live down under than in Romania, mate. But I would say that, I'm an Aussie. We didn't need Black Sabbath touring during the Dio years, we had home grown talent to keep us occupied.

I saw them with Dio in 2007 as Heaven & Hell - it's referring to the original lineup. Also, suck my balls

As far as the "not a reunion without Bill Ward" line, it must be said that of the original four, he is the most replaceable, and that the vast majority of fans (myself included) would be happy to take any chance they can get to see the others playing together. Not to mention it's been covered in detail, and it seems he doesn't want to play ball. You're just being stubborn for the sake of it.

Take it that the news was written by Sharon then. Ozzy's name mentioned first as The Prince Of Darkness. Not as the pissed up has been.

QFT. But I am still pretty excited to at least see Tony and Geezer playing together. Their guitar/bass together I find is the best part of Sabbath. Heck the only albums that aren't "true sabbath" are the ones without Geezer, especially since Tony just wanted them to be called his solo albums.

If you say Chisel/Barnsey or the Oils, I'm gonna reach through the internet and slap you.
