Zakk Wylde Talks Ozzy & Friends Shows
The guitarist reveals what fans can expect from the shows which replaced Sabbath tourIn a new interview with Noisecreep, Wylde revealed some details about the forthcoming Ozzy & Friends shows, which were arranged to replace Black Sabbath's cancelled tour dates when Tony Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma.
"It’s the "Ozzy and Friends” thing,” he explains. "[Current Ozzy bandmembers] Gus G., Blasko and Tommy [Clufetos] are coming out and doing a bunch of tunes, then I come out with Blasko and Tommy and we end up doing a bunch of stuff from the era when I was with The Boss, from ‘No Rest For The Wicked’ all the way through everything I’ve ever done with him. Then Geezer [Butler] comes out and we do a bunch of Sabbath stuff and at the end, Slash and everybody - Geezer, Slash, Gus - and we all play ‘Paranoid’.”
The Ozzy & Friends Tour takes in 15 dates around Europe from May to the end of June.
