Black Sabbath to announce reunion on November 11?

Something is definitely up in Black Sabbath camp.

The band’s website has been updated with the a new front page, featuring their logo and the date 11.11.11

A major announcement is expected from Sabbath next week: the four original members – Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward - will attend a special ceremony at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, hosted by Henry Rollins, on November 11 at exactly 11:11 AM.

Sabbath played their first US show at the Whisky on November 11, 1970, opening for Alice Cooper; the pairing played 2 sets a night for 5 straight nights.

Speculation and rumors about a reunion have been circulating for months so, while the details of the announcement remain under lock and key, it seems likely that this is the time and place for the news to be made official.

VH1 has also designated November 11 as “National Metal Day,” so the timing and location of the announcement couldn’t be much better.

Stay tuned!
