Black Sabbath Day Coming?
The city council in Black Sabbath’s hometown of Birmingham in England is considering a Black Sabbath Day to both honor the legendary rock band and bring attention to the city.
According to the Birmingham Post,the city’s Destination Birmingham document said: "Black Sabbath’s reunion and their agreement to headline Download Festival in June is an opportunity we should not miss. Early discussions are taking place about how best the city should celebrate this and the council should be supporting any celebrations."
Philip Parkin, the report’s author said: "The report is saying that Black Sabbath reforming is significant, Black Sabbath are huge and metal is huge. Given this, it is us saying to the council that we need to celebrate the fact these people come from Birmingham and there could be various ways we could do it… Ozzy Osbourne came from Aston and he’s an international star".
