Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi Explains Why Geezer Butler Was Absent From Commonwealth Games Performance

As previously reported, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and Ozzy Osbourne recently reunited to perform at the closing ceremony for this year’s Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England. Now, during a recent interview with BirminghamLive, Iommi offered an explanation for Geezer Butler’s absence from the event:

“I don’t think he wanted to come over as he hadn’t been well with Covid. He’d been on holiday to Kenya and to Italy and had had an accident on a boat, cracking or breaking a rib about three weeks ago, so he was not quite in fine fettle to come over to play. It’s a shame because we’d talked for a long time about the possibility of playing at the Commonwealth Games.”
