Birmingham rock legend Tony Iommi has been named as the next celebrity to be immortalised on the city’s Walk of Stars.

The Aston-born guitarist will join fellow Black Sabbath star Ozzy Osbourne, also from Aston, when his name is cemented into Broad Street’s answer to the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame.

A special concert will be held to mark the honour in Centenary Square on November 23, which will feature music from local bands.

Tony, aged 60, joins a string of other Midland legends to have received a star, including actress Julie Walters and comedian Jasper Carrott.
