BLACK SABBATH: Soccer Bloody Soccer
Tony Iommi says Geezer Butler is such a big soccer fan that he has “booked pubs, clubs and hotel lounges throughout Europe” to watch the World Cup.
Iommi says, “I’ve warned Geezer not to burn the midnight oil [watching late-night games] too often — or he’ll be too tired for the gigs… He’s been watching every game he can, no matter who’s playing, but the England matches are especially important.”
Black Sabbath’s European tour hits Switzerland today (Friday) and France on Sunday. It runs through July 4th in London. Geezer should be reasonably rested — with Costa Rica’s win over Italy today, England has been eliminated and will play just one more match in the World Cup.
