BLACK SABBATH frontman Ozzy Osbourne and guitarist Tony Iommi reunited earlier today (Monday, August 8) in Birmingham, England to perform the band’s classic song “Paranoid” for the closing of the city’s Commonwealth Games.

They were joined by Adam Wakeman on bass and Ozzy Osbourne drummer Tommy Clufetos for the performance.

Ozzy had previously mentioned that he was open to the possibility of a BLACK SABBATH reunion at the Commonwealth Games, telling ITV that it “would be fantastic” to play at the the opening ceremony for the 2022 Games. “With BLACK SABBATH or on my own,” he said at the time.

Tony Iommi took part in the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony last month, performing with acclaimed saxophonist Soweto Kinch for a piece called  “Hear My Voice”, based on the lead track from the 2020 film “Trial Of The Chicago Seven“. The performance saw the two joined by the City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra including a massive community choir.

After the opening ceremony, Ozzy tweeted: “@TonyIommi , I was really proud to see you tonight at the opening of the Commonwealth Games in our home town of Birmingham”.
