Sharon Osbourne revealed this news when interviewed by VH1 Radio Network. The date itself is to be announced shortly.
Sharon also commented on the current state of play with drummer Bill Ward, who is still claiming he’s not been offered a reasonable contract to reunite with Sabbath.
“It’s up to Bill. The door is open for him to join us, so it’s up to him.”
The band without Ward are currently working on a new studio album, which is apparently going well.
“They’re doing really well in the studio,” said Shazza. “Gosh, they must’ve written 15 new songs already and it’s going great.”
As reported, Sabbath have had to cancel all their European dates because of guitarist Tony Iommi’s ongoing treatment for lymphoma.
The only show they’re still booked to play is headlining the Download Festival on Sunday, June 10. The remainder of the Sabs’ European dates are going to be honoured by Ozzy & Friends – who, besides the Double-O on vocals, will feature Zakk Wylde on guitar and Geezer Butler on bass.
