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.”
