The 'No More Tours' trek - titled with a wink towards Ozzy's No More Tears album, wound up with two nights at the Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa, California. At the conclusion of Osbourne's 14 song set, which included Sabbath hits Paranoid and War Pigs, on night two the singer reunited with his old friends Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward for a four song Black Sabbath mini-set, featuring the songs Black Sabbath, Fairies Wear Boots, Iron Man and Paranoid, again.
Iommi, Butler and Ward had already performed onstage together that night, with Judas Priest's Rob Halford on vocals, after Ronnie James Dio declined to be part of the celebratory 'farewell' to his Sabbath predecessor.
Three days later, the original Black Sabbath line-up was inducted into LA's Rock Walk of Fame. Which would have been a nice way for the Godfathers of Heavy Metal to sign off on their remarkable career... had Ozzy not decided days later that "retirement sucks" and started writing songs again. The singer was back on the road within four years, supporting his Ozzmosis album: Sabbath themselves returned to the road in 1994, touring the Cross Purposes album with Tony Martin on vocals.
Sabbath original line-up would reform again for Ozzfest 1997.
Listen to Black Sabbath with Ozzy on November 15, 1992 below:
Ozzy recently said he'd be up for working with Tony Iommi again... but not as Black Sabbath.
"I wouldn't say no to do some more with Tony," he said. "I would work with any of them individually. But as Black Sabbath, I think it's [over]. We couldn't really beat what we've already done."
