Black Sabbath Announces “The End” Farewell Tour

Black Sabbath

One of the greatest metal bands of all time will finally come to an end next year. Black Sabbath have announced “The End Tour”, a worldwide farewell tour that they say will be their final performances ever.

The band, which reformed with its original members in 2011, is also rumored to release their 20th and final album next year. Black Sabbath’s current lineup includes bassist and primary songwriter Geezer Butler, guitarist Tony Iommi, and singer Osbourne. Original drummer Bill Ward has been estranged from the band and was replaced by Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk for their latest album, 13. There’s been no official word as to the band’s touring drummer for their final outing.

The tour will begin in North America with a month of dates stretching across the U.S. and Canada, followed by Australia and New Zealand dates in April. More dates are expected to be announced next month.

I use to listen to this music like it was my religion , funny how time changes things , the music of Black Sabbath is still great and always will be. Ozzie is certainly a character never to be forgotten.
