They're getting older...
In an interview with Metal Hammer, Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi said that the band's appearance at the Barclaycard British Summer Time festival at London's Hyde Park may be their last. The show happens on July 4 and is the final date of their summer 2014 tour. They will headline on a lineup that includes Soundgarden, Faith No More, Motorhead and Soulfly.
Iommi said: "It could be the last ever Sabbath show. I don't want it to be, but there's nothing really planned touring-wise after that show, so for all we know that could be it really. To be honest I don't want to be touring to this extent too much longer, because it makes me feel so bad."
Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma in January 2012. He finished his treatment in March and is waiting on an update.
He added: "I'm at a stage now where I have no support, which means I have to see whether the cancer is coming back or if it's still there or what. I just don't know. It's a bit of a worry. After we finish this tour I'll go in and have scan, so we'll see what that shows up. But the show at Hyde Park will a great way to end the European tour. It has a really great bill, with a really good mix of people. We haven't made any specific plans as the gig is a way off yet, but I think it'll be special."
