The legendary dark masters of metal have reunited. Black Sabbath recently released a surprisingly satisfying new single, and the Ozzy Osbourne-led band -- featuring three of its four original members -- is getting ready to hit the road. The tour includes an Aug. 2 date at Jiffy Lube Live, which should make most other summer concerts seem quaint by comparison. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
