Rare Footage of BLACK SABBATH Playing "Paranoid" at Bilzen Pop Festival in 1970

Black Sabbath have uploaded a live performance of “Paranoid” recorded at the Bilzen Pop Festival.

The festival took place on August 21st, 1970. Check out the video below.

Tony Iommi has told NBC News recently that he is in the process of mixing the sound from the band’s final shows in Birmingham, England for a possible live album.

We’ll actually be doing a documentary,” he said. “My job at the moment is to have a listen to what we’ve done.

Iommi, who was diagnosed with cancer in late 2011 and is currently in remission, has written a piece for the long-running ”CSI” television series and has “bags” of riffs he came up with for Black Sabbath that might one day wind up on a solo album.

I’m certainly not retiring from playing and doing stuff,” he said. “But I think since my illness I’ve had to look at things differently, think sensibly. I feel fine, but I still go for checkups and tests and at the moment I’m okay.

Black Sabbath finished its year-long ”The End” farewell tour on February 4 in the band’s hometown of Birmingham, closing out the quartet’s groundbreaking 49-year career with an emotional 15-song set.

The band decided to make this tour its last because Iommi can no longer travel for extended amounts of time.

The guitarist recently said that he wouldn’t rule out Black Sabbath recording new material or playing a one-off event.
