Last month (July 14), Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi reflected on the band’s brief reunion at Live Aid to mark 35 years since the iconic concerts took place.

The metal icons played the Philadelphia leg of the fundraising concerts on July 14, 1985, which marked the first time the original line-up – featuring Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward – had appeared on stage since 1978.

Reflecting on the show for SiriusXM’s ‘Live Aid Look Back: 35 Years Later’, Iommi said: “It was great. It was great being with the guys again. It was a bit surreal, to be honest, because, basically, I had been in the studio…and then suddenly, here we are, in the next couple of days, on stage in front of all the people.”

He added: “But this was a quick rehearsal for an hour or whatever it was, and then the next day, of course, on stage. So it was a bit nerving, because you don’t know how things are gonna go with the equipment and all this stuff. We hadn’t been on stage together for so long. You have to sort of suck it and see what’s gonna happen.”

Iommi also recently admitted he was keen to play more Black Sabbath shows, after playing their final dates in February 2017.
