It’s possible that Black Sabbath’s set at the Barclaycard British Summer Time festival at London’s Hyde Park on July 4th might be their last. “I don’t want it to be [the final Sabbath concert], but there’s nothing really planned touring-wise after that show, so for all we know that could be it really,” guitarist Tony Iommi, who has been undergoing treatment since being diagnosed with lymphoma in January 2012, tells UK magazine Metal Hammer.
“To be honest, I don’t want to be touring to this extent too much longer, because it makes me feel so bad,” he said. “I’m at a stage now where I have no support, which means I have to see whether the cancer is coming back or if it’s still there or what. I just don’t know. It’s a bit of a worry. After we finish this tour I’ll go in and have a scan, so we’ll see what that shows up.”
The Hyde Park event will also feature performances from Soulfly, Motörhead, Faith No More, and Soundgarden. “The show will be a great way to end the European tour,” Iommi says. “It has a really great bill, with a really good mix of people. I think it’ll be special.”
