Black Sabbath: To Headline Lollapalooza On August 3rd
Sabbath will headline the Lollapalooza festival on Friday, August 3rd
festival in the world wanted Black Sabbath to perform, but at the
time of the announcement they had to back off and cancel all their
shows," Farrell tells RollingStonefrom
São Paulo, Brasil, where the Jane's Addicition frontman was on hand
to debut the South American country's first-ever installment of
Lollapalooza last weekend. "It broke my heart, but I just kind
of kept a little fire building, a little kindling going to see if
possibly we could get Black Sabbath. I didn't have much faith." (...) "They
mean so much to me, and they mean so much to music in general, that I
kind of feel like I'm dreaming to know that Black Sabbath is actually
gonna perform at Lollapalooza," says Farrell.
Vinny Appice revealed that he has not been
approached to fill in for holdout Bill Ward on the forthcoming Black
Sabbath tour dates. Appice, who currently plays in Kill Devil Hill,
said, "No, I haven't heard a peep. And that's why, even when I'm
communicating with Tony, it's on a friendship level. I never write in
'Hey man, what's happening?! Hey how you feeling? Feeling good? Oh,
good! Hey, what's going on with the band? I'd love to do that!' I
never do that. I never did that with Sabbath at all, or with Dio.
I've always been asked to be in a band..."Metal
It has not yet been confirmed if Bill Ward`s gonna join the original line up.
Stay tuned for updates!
