By Alex Baker
The Sabs have mostly reunited their original lineup which in addition to frontman Ozzy Osborne, also includes guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler. Original drummer Bill Ward has been excluded from the latest round of Sabbath activity and is not featured on the band’s upcoming new album, 13.
In addition to the opening date in Houston, the Sabbath summer tour will also include stops in most other major U.S. and Canadian music markets including San Francisco, Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
