Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath are getting ready for their return to the road in New Zealand and Australia this spring, followed by an expected North American trek in the summer. The band is making their first extended tour run since guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma and underwent chemotherapy last year, and Osbourne says his Sabbath bandmate is doing quite well.

His diagnosis came right in the middle of Black Sabbath’s comeback trail, which includes a new album and touring. A flood of support from fans and fellow musicians followed the announcement of his illness. Now, the legendary axeman has issued his first personal statement on the matter.
After word spread yesterday that the original line-up from one of the greatest bands in the history of history would be reuniting for a new album and tour, Tony Iommi doesn't so much deny it as he does chastise the reporter who broke the story.
