Raise those horns! Mighty masters of morbid metal Black Sabbath will open this year’s British Summer Time series of mega-gigs, already including headline shows by Neil Young and teen-rock hybrid McBusted. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler top the bill on in Hyde Park on July 4, and hopefully the park’s sound regulations won’t prevent them from busting out their immortal, towering riffs at the usual ear-splitting volumes.
Also on the bill are ’90s Sabbath acolytes Soundgarden and Faith No More, Lemmy Kilminster and his hellraising heavy metal heroes Motörhead, and a clutch of young headbangers such as Bo Ningen. Tickets cost £69 to £229, and go on sale at 9am on Friday.
