The reunited members of Black Sabbath have announced plans to tour Europe this winter and will play a pre-Christmas (13) gig in their native Birmingham, England.

The heavy rockers had to stall extensive touring plans after regrouping last year (12) when guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with cancer, but they're heading out on the road this year to support their upcoming album 13, which will be released in June (13).

And as frontman Ozzy Osbourne and his bandmates prepare for concerts in New Zealand, Australia and Japan later this month (Apr13), they have released dates for a series 15 European shows, beginning in Finland on 20 November (13).

The group will play shows in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Germany, France, Italy and the Czech Republic, before headlining six shows in the U.K., culminating with a hometown gig at the LG Arena on 20 December (13).
