Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Faith No More to Headline London Fest
Maybe Black Sabbath’s feeling guilty for having been inactive for so long. The band continues making up for lost time by headlining a show at the British Summer Time festival this July.
Sabbath will play their first-ever performance at London’s Hyde Park on July 4. Perhaps in a nod to America’s Independence Day, Ozzy Osbourne, Tommy Iommi and Geezer Butler will be joined on the Great Oak Stage by Soundgarden and Faith No More. Other acts performing that day include Motörhead, Soulfly and more.
“The first time I came to London I didn’t have a pot to piss in and I spent the advance I got for the first album on a new pair of shoes and some Brut aftershave,” Ozzy says in a statement about the show. “Returning almost 50 years on, we are doing a it better for ourselves so I may even splash out on some new aftershave before taking to the stage at Hyde Park.”
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday and start at 69 pounds, about $115. Check the event website for more info.
