Tony Iommi Undergoing Further Cancer Treatment

Black Sabbath legend Tony Iommi has confirmed that he continues to receive treatment for cancer, following the completion of the band's recent tour. The metal icon hit his official website to break the news:

"Well, we've finished the U.S. leg of our world tour. It was a bit longer than I would have liked as I've already been in hospital having another infusion. The tour was amazing though, you always hope it's going to go well but you never know, it's great to look out and see so many people of all ages."

Iommi later added that fans have been very receptive to songs from the band's newest release, 13, and that he's thrilled to embark on the next leg of their tour.

Sabbath next heads to South America--the first trek in that country featuring Ozzy, Tony and Geezer Butler all at the same time.
