Last month, Geezer Butler shut down the idea of any future reunion shows for the band. It came after Ozzy Osbourne admitted he didn’t have the “slightest interest” in a comeback.

Black Sabbath brought their career to a close in 2017 with a string of arena concerts, which concluded with a two-night homecoming in Birmingham. There have been rumours of the group potentially reuniting ever since.
