Black Sabbath have announced what is being billed as the legendary metal band’s final tour. “It’s the beginning of the end,” says the new video, which you can check out below. “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 tour by the greatest metal band of all time, Black Sabbath. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible Black Sabbath story. Black Sabbath’s farewell tour, ‘The End,’ begins January 20, 2016, and it promises to surpass all previous tours with their most mesmerizing production ever. When this tour concludes, it will truly be the end, the end of one of the most legendary bands in rock and roll history, Black Sabbath.” More dates are scheduled to be announced in October.
