Ozzy Osbourne's band, Black Sabbath, are set to head Birmingham-way.

In a few weeks' time the Never Say Die band are going to perform at the O2 Academy in the city.

Despite the fact that he is having cancer treatment at the moment, Tony Iommi is set to be there alongside his bandmates, taking on guitar playing duties.

The special concert will be taking place on the evening of the 19th of May.

Black Sabbath's biggest hit was the track Paranoid. Their other songs include Die Young and Hard Rock.

Some years after the band's formation, member Ozzy appeared on television's The Osbournes programme, which also featured other members of his family.

His wife Sharon was a judge on The X Factor, while daughter Kelly dueted with Ozzy on the number one hit Changes and had solo success with the likes of Madonna cover Papa Don't Preach.

Black Sabbath are also set to make an appearance at June's Download festival. Others set to feature at that fest include Metallica.
