Black Sabbath show they still got it

Black Sabbath took to the stage last Saturday night with their first show in 7 years and without Bill Ward on drums.

Tommy Clufetos who plays with Ozzy on a regular basis, played drums and that the crowd seemed more intent on enjoying the show and cheering on Tony Iommi who has been battling cancer, rather than sledging Clufetos.

The set included around 18 songs, opening with ‘Into the Void’ and closing with ‘Paranoid.’ Bassist Geezer Butler took to his website after the gig to show his gratitude, saying, “Thank you, thank you, thank you Birmingham. Best fans ever — you brought out the best in us. It was a privilege playing for you tonight. Tony was a hero — you were the best medicine he has had. Proud to be a Brummie.” 

Here is a sample from the show,  Black Sabbath – Iron Man ‘live’ (Birmingham O2 Academy, 19/05/2012)
