Geezer Butler Clarifies Whether Ozzy Osbourne Will Go Out On The Road Again
Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler opened up about a future possibility of a brand new tour with frontman Ozzy Osbourne and the rest of the band during an interview with Cleveland, and apparently, none of the members of Black Sabbath is planning on performing again since all of them are quite old to hit the road.
As many of you know, after being active for nearly 5 decades, Black Sabbath disbanded after their final concert tour which was named ‘The End Tour’ featuring founding members frontman Ozzy Osbourne, lead guitarist Tony Iommi, and bassist Geezer Butler. The tour started on 20 January 2016 and the final show was on February 4, 2017, in their home city of Birmingham, England.
A month later from their final performance, the legendary band announced their disbandment through posts made on their official social media accounts on March 7, 2017. However, despite the fact that their fans are still hopeful for a reunion even it’s for a special event, band members are consistent about their decision to stay apart.
Nevertheless, there is no harm in asking one member of Black Sabbath for the hope of a positive answer, therefore, during a recent interview, Black Sabbath bassist was asked if the final tour was really the last one or the band members are considering another tour together as the coronavirus pandemic may have changed their minds.
Geezer Butler strictly stated that there is not a chance of a reunion as the band went in different directions after leaving at the top of their games in addition to the age factor since none of the band members are young musicians anymore and many went through serious illnesses.
Along with speaking on behalf of other band members when it comes to a Black Sabbath reunion, the legendary bassist also stated that Ozzy Osbourne may go on the road on his own, however, he does not know for sure and reconciliation for the band is quite impossible.
Here is what the interviewer asked:
“So, is it really the end after the last tour, or has the pandemic got you guys thinking about maybe doing it again?”
Here is what Butler said:
“Nope, definitely not. We went out on top – why ruin it? We’re all old – really old. I don’t think we could last a tour these days.
Tony has had his cancer; He’s in remission but he doesn’t want to chance going out on the road. God knows what Ozzy’s doing.
He was waiting to do his final tour for the past three years. I don’t know if he’ll ever go out on the road again. So no, Sabbath, it’s definitely the end for us.“
