Tony is returning to Town Hall for a evening with Gary Newbon

 

Following his sellout show in 2016, the legendary guitarist Tony Iommi is returning to the Town Hall in his native Birmingham, for an amazing evening talking about his life and career, hosted by his good friend Gary Newbon. 

Tony will be answering a select number of questions on the night. Please send us your questions via tweet using #askiommi2018 or email marketing@thsh.co.uk. 

Tony said: "I'm really looking forward to being back at the Town Hall again - I had a great time last time and I'm ready to talk more about my experiences and answer some of your questions."

Earlier today, an article on Birmingham Mail appeared, citing both Iommi and Osbourne enthusiastic to open the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022. Both legends stated they would love to get the band back together to open the Games. There will be a major showpiece ceremony to open the 2022 Games secured by the city featuring music, story-telling, song and dance. And Sabbath, who played their farewell gig at the Genting Arena in February last year, would be willing to re-form for the momentous event.

“Yeah, that would be fantastic,” says Ozzy, who closed this year’s Download Festival at Castle Donnington last weekend, - "with Black Sabbath or on my own. I’d like to do that. We’re all Brummies after all.”

Guitar hero Iommi agrees: “I think that it would be a great thing to do to help represent Birmingham. I’m up for it! Let’s see what happens!”
Both have, however, always insisted that they might get the band back together for a ‘one-off’ event if the occasion was suitable. Iommi adds: “I seem to be busier than ever, so I won’t call this retirement. I love playing live, and I will continue to do so."
