Black Sabbath to headline Hyde Park

Black Sabbath are announced as the opening night headliners at British Summer Time Festival, taking place in Hyde Park, London on the 04th of July.

In 2013, the band returned in the most triumphant style with a global number one album, ’13’, sell out tours, a prestigious Classic Rock Living Legends award along with a Grammy Award.

Ozzy Osbourne: “The first time I came to London I didn’t have a pot to piss in and I spent the advance I got for the first album on a new pair of shoes and some Brut aftershave. Returning almost 50 years on, we are doing a it better for ourselves so I may even splash out on some new aftershave before taking to the stage at Hyde Park, the most beautiful park in London that has opened its gates to so many legends in the past. We are beyond honoured to be allowed to put on a show and hope that the Royals will enjoy the it!”  Read more
