Black Sabbath had played their last show back in 2017; as the band that kicked off the heavy metal genre, this was a huge moment in metal’s history. Having released 19 studio albums, inspiring an incredible amount of metal bands, and having played all around the globe – Black Sabbath have forever changed the world of music.
But while the band may have played their last show five years ago, it looks like some of the members are still quite interested in performing the band’s songs. For at this year’s 2022 Commonwealth Games, Black Sabbath members Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi reunited to perform the band’s song “Paranoid“!
“Paranoid” is of course one of the band’s biggest songs and the self-titled track off of the super popular Sabbath album of the same name. Ozzy and Tony took to the stage to close out the 2022 Commonwealth Games, and per the footage you will find below, they sound incredible!
It would have been awesome to see the likes of Geezer Butler and Bill Ward perform alongside Ozzy and Tony as well, but this reunion is still pretty bad ass.
Black Sabbath reunite for Paranoid
What do you make of this performance? Did you have a chance to see Black Sabbath perform before they retired? We are glad to see that Ozzy seems to be doing well, given that a couple months ago, he underwent a surgery that would “determine the rest of his life” (per his wife Sharon Osbourne). Back in June, Ozzy shared a new song and announced his upcoming new record, titled Patient Number 9.
Patient Number 9 marks the 13th studio album from the heavy metal legend. The record will be out come September 9th, and features a plethora of incredible guests. Such guests involve: Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, fellow Black Sabbath member Tony Iommi, Zakk Wylde, and many more.
