Tony leads Pride of Birmingham Awards 2015. Black Sabbath's European dates announced


Pride of Birmingham honoured the real-life heroes of the West Midlands again this year, on 2 October 2015.

The Pride of Birmingham Awards, organised by the Birmingham Mail, celebrate people who make a difference. A host of celebrities from music, movies, TV, showbiz and sport joined host Gaby Roslin. Among those helping to present awards is our Black Sabbath guitar hero Tony Iommi, as always very active when it takes to the local hometown events. Tony wrote on his Official Facebook page:

"Lovely to be a part of the Pride of Birmingham Awards again, the award winners were really amazing. Their stories of outstanding bravery and compassion for others never ceases to amaze me. As always it was great to see my old friend Noddy from Slade and Roy Wood from The Move and, Wizard, etc."

Tony posted a set of great pictures on his page, don't forget to give a look, and if you haven't "liked" Tony's page yet, do it now!
