Black Sabbath Were Reportedly Set to Headline Coachella
According to Billboard.com, Black Sabbath had been lined up as headliners for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival before guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma. The lineup for the annual festival was revealed yesterday, with the Black Keys, Radiohead, and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg named as headliners. There is no indication as to which act may have been called in to replace Sabbath.
While Coachella will not be hosting the reunited Black Sabbath, the festival will play host to the reunion of At the Drive-In and influential Swedish hardcore band Refused.
