It started nearly five decades ago with a crack of thunder, a distant bell ringing and then that monstrous riff that shook the earth. The heaviest rock sound ever heard.
In that moment Heavy Metal was born, created by a young band from Birmingham, England barely out of their teens.
Now it ENDS, the final eight shows EVER by the greatest Metal Band of all time, BLACK SABBATH. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler return home to close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible BLACK SABBATH story.
BLACK SABBATH's farewell tour, THE END, is currently wowing fans all over Europe, surpassing all previous tours with their most mesmerizing production ever. Ahead of what is set to be a mind-blowing headline performance at Download Festival tomorrow night, BLACK SABBATH announce their final run of dates across the UK and Ireland. This leg of THE END tour will start on the 20th January 2017 at the 3 Arena in Dublin and will then hit arenas in Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, 2 nights at The O2 in London and will culminate in 2 nights in their hometown at the Genting Arena, Birmingham.
On September 4, 2016 "The End" Tour took Black Sabbath to Midwest at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre Chicago. "The End" Tour was something not to miss. Per Pollstar.com the last show will take Black Sabbath Home, Birmingham, United Kingdom on February 4th, 2017. Will we see Black Sabbath again, let's hope so. It's never too late to do another show.
When this tour concludes, it will truly be THE END. THE END of one of most legendary bands in Rock 'n Roll history...
