Black Sabbath to headline BST Hyde Park Festival

Black Sabbath will headline the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park in July.

While fans await the formal announcement, event organizers have posted a teaser image of Sabbath on stage with the caption, “Paranoid that you're not getting enough rock this summer? Well that's all about to change…”

Sabbath are rumoured to headline the festival’s opening night on Friday, July 4.

Already confirmed for the 10-day event, which runs July 4 – 13, are McBusted (July 6) and Neil Young & Crazy Horse (July 12).

More headliners are to be announced.

Black Sabbath resume their “13” world tour with a series of North American shows starting March 31 in New York.

On April 15, the band will release “The Complete Studio Albums (1970-1978)”, an 8-disc box set featuring their 1970s catalog.

The package was released on iTunes in January, and a variation of the set (which also included DVDs) was first issued in 2004.

The box set contains all of the studio albums Black Sabbath recorded for Warner Bros. Records during the 1970s, including its iconic, eponymous debut (1970), the multi-platinum landmark "Paranoid" (1970), the platinum albums "Master Of Reality" (1971), "Vol. 4" (1972), and "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" (1973), as well as the gold albums "Sabotage" (1975), "Technical Ecstasy" (1976), and "Never Say Die!" (1978).
