Ozzy, Black Sabbath reunion tour coming to Gorge

After years of rumors and false starts, Ozzy Osbourne and British metal pioneers Black Sabbath have confirmed they are getting back together for a limited tour this summer.

The band has only four North American stops scheduled, including an Aug. 24 gig at the Gorge.

The only other dates announced so far are in Holmdel, N.J. (Aug. 4), Toronto (Aug. 14), and Los Angeles (Sept. 3)

The tour is in support of Black Sabbath's new Rick Rubin-produced album "13", due out June 11. It's the first time original members Ozzy, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler have taken the stage as Sabbath since 1978.

Tickets for the Gorge show range from $45-$125 and go on sale Saturday, April 20, via Live Nation.
