Tony Iommi Sent Out Madonna of Black Sabbath Live Aid Reunion Show

Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath guitarist just shares the band’s 1985 reunion at the Live Aid show. This is one of the rare reunion concerts featured of the original Black Sabbath line-up.

A recently, Tony Iommi‘s an appearance and talks to SiriusXM. In this interview, he reveals some memories about the band’s reunion. He was also the only remaining original member of Black Sabbath left in the lineup. And future of the band remained uncertain, as evidenced by the 1986 album Seventh Star. However, the album which the guitarist had intended to be a solo album release. He also reveals he kicked Madonna out of their reunion rehearsal. He didn’t even know who she was.

Tony Iommi talks about those days:

“It was a bit of a disaster, really, to be honest. They had a room booked for us to rehearse. We started rehearsing and then we started talking about the old times; so most of the rehearsal was talking. And the time when we did rehearse, it was a closed session, and it would be embarrassing really because I saw these two girls come in at the back of the room.

And I said to one of our crew, ‘Look, there are people walking in,’ you know, ‘you better tell them to get out, this is a private rehearsal.’ Anyway, he goes up and tells them and it turns out to be Madonna. So it’s a bit embarrassing. But anyway, we had the rehearsal and then went back to the hotel.”

Then Iommi added:

“On the night before the show, we went back to the hotel and of course, we all ended up in the bar, and that was another disaster because we had a bit too many to drink. And then the next day, of course, I had a dreadful hangover when we were on stage.”
