While Black Sabbath had no choice but to cancel their entire tour that they planned due to Tony’s cancer announcement, the band said they were still going to play a few shows, as a way to keep the fans happy. Tony maybe okay right now, but this is a good time to play a few final shows before he gets worse with his cancer until he isn’t able to play guitar anymore.
While I’m sure Sabbath is still getting a lot of hate from fans because of the Bill Ward controversy, I wish everyone would give the band positive vibes. Simply because Tony is having cancer and the band deserves to retire on a positive note, but fans continue to disrespect the band by blaming Bill’s departure on Sharon and all that stuff. Look, the band is going through some hard times with Tony’s cancer, you think people would give the band respect? No, people just want to continue to be assholes to them.
Sabbath deserves all the support and respect, ’cause Tony is a legend. With or without Bill Ward, it’s still going to be a great fuckin’ performance. Sabbath went through many different members over the years. I also believe that Sabbath went through a different drummer while Ozzy was still frontman in the 70’s. Bill has always been difficult on the guys, so never blame it on Sharon.
Lollapalooza 2012, could be Sabbath’s last and final gig ever. Perry Farrell, who is the longtime founder and owner of the legendary festival, says he’s thrilled and excited to have Black Sabbath perform. He also says he couldn’t believe they actually accepted his offer to play.
I’m sure Sabbath’s performance at Lollapalooza will get the most attention, than most of the acts on the lineup. I’m sure they will get the biggest crowd too. I’m sure looking forward to seeing it, with or without Bill Ward. I won’t be going to the concert itself but I’m sure the internet will live stream it somewhere, so I’ll watch Sabbath’s performance then.
