In September 2014, Ozzy Osbourne announced some big Black Sabbath news. The frontman plans to head back into the studio with Black Sabbath this year for one more album before embarking on one final tour. In early 2014, it was originally understood that Black Sabbath’s last gig would be their July 4th gig at London’s Hyde Park.
In an interview with Metal Hammer, Ozzy stated, “The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great. We all made friends, we didn’t fuck around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun. So we’re going to do one more album, and a final tour.” Ozzy also revealed, “I believe [producer] Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again.”
