Black Sabbath tipped to reform with Ozzy

Rumours are mounting that legendary metal band Black Sabbath will reform with their original front man Ozzy Osbourne on Friday.

The band is set to hold a press conference on Friday at Whiskey a Go Go in Los Angeles, reports the Herald Sun, and the band's website simply states "11.11.11".

The band made its debut at the Whiskey 41 years ago and it is reported Black Sabbath's four original members - Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward - will be present.

Iommi has previously denied reunion reports, but recently told Billboard.com: "We're talking."

The British metallers, who formed in Birmingham in 1961, have been named the Greatest Metal Band of all time by MTV.

Osbourne was fired from the band in 1979, and the band has toured and recorded ever since with Ronnie James Dio taking on vocals until his death in May last year.
