Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi Reunite To Perform ‘Paranoid’ At Commonwealth Games

Black Sabbath bandmates Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi reunited to perform “Paranoid” onstage in their hometown of Birmingham, England, during the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.

The performance initially began with a brief snippet of “Iron Man,” the group’s classic 1971 single. Osbourne then joined Iommi on the stage for the rendition of “Paranoid.”

The Sabbath bandmates were joined by bassist Adam Wakeman and drummer Tommy Clufetos for the performance.

“I love you all Birmingham! Good to be back!” Osbourne shouted at one point during the “Paranoid.” “Thank you, goodnight! You are the best. God bless you all. Birmingham forever!” the frontman declared following the song’s final note.

Last month, Osbourne and Iommi had reunited for a new single, “Degradation Rules.” The song will feature on Osbourne’s upcoming album, Patient Number 9, due out September 9.

The album will feature guest appearances from Eric Clapton and Pearl Jam‘s Mike McCready as well as session work from Guns N’ RosesDuff McKagan, Jane’s Addiction‘s Chris Chaney, and late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
