Sabbath And Soundgarden Close Download 2012

Rock giants returned to the stage last night at this year's Download festival, with Black Sabbath and Soundgarden closing the 2012 Donnington event.

Frontman, Ozzy Osbourne, took to the stage alongside Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Tommy Clufetos to close the festival, without drummer Bill Ward after a disagreement over payment and scheduling earlier this year.

The band's setlist included some of their most famous hits, War Pigs, Paranoid and Sweet Leaf. The metallers shared the stage with Seattle rockers, Soundgarden, which was the band's first show in the UK for 15 years. Their set featured tracks like Spoonman, Black Hole Sun and Rusty Cage. Frontman, Chris Cornell, spoke about his excitement at performing at this year's Download:

"If you're in a rock band or you're a fan, it's pretty well documented as being the big hard rock festival worldwide. It's the one. I played Download three years ago on a solo tour and it was great. It stood out as being one of the best festival shows I'd had, certainly that year."
