No confirmation on which artist was added at last minute, though speculation points to the surprise get of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

As previously reported, the forthcoming Black Sabbath reunion is still set to take place with Iommi, all of which includes a new studio album and a world tour. Stay tuned as that story develops.
