Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommy spoke in an event and explained will Black Sabbath ever play again after completing its “The End” Tour last year.

Iommy said:

“It’s highly unlikely, but we may. You can never say never, because we’ve done it… So many times, you say, ‘Oh, that’s it now,’ with different singers and different this and that. And all of a sudden, we’re playing together again. I would hope we could do some one-offs, but we’ll never tour the world again as we did, because it really is exhausting.”

He continued:

“People think, ‘What a great life,’ and it is a great life, but it takes its toll on your body. All the traveling at different hours of the day and night. You finish a show at 11 o’clock. We’d base ourselves in one place, like New York or wherever we were, and then we’d stay in New York for 10 days, fly out and do a show and fly back in the night.

So by the time you get to the hotel, it’s four o’clock or five o’clock [in the morning]. And you can’t sleep. And that’s the difficult part. Even though you travel the best way you can. We had a great plane, we had great hotels — everything was marvelous — but it’s still tiring.”
