Black Sabbath completed their musical carrier with their last concert in Birmingham. The band will never go on a long-running tour after that. Even technically, we can even say that they are retiring on their music career.
But according to Tony Iommi, the Black Sabbath is not quite finished yet. They said they were open to occasional one-off concerts or studio works. He spoke in an interview with Planet Rock and said:
“I’m going to miss playing on stage because that has been my whole life. I like it and I’m sure it’s not going to end like that; I’m sure we might do a one-off show somewhere.
It’s just the touring for me – it’s time to stop roaming the world and be at home for a bit… I’m still going to write and put stuff out.”
Asked if Black Sabbath’s studio work would be completely over, Tony replied:
“No, I don’t think we’ve ruled anything out apart from me not wanting to tour any more on that scale, but who knows, we may do something.
“We haven’t spoken about it. That’s another thing – we haven’t talked about anything, really, that’s to do with what’s going to happen afterwards. But I’m sure something can happen somewhere.“
