Black Sabbath Final Ever Tour
The dates were revealed on flyers handed out at Download, the festival which the band will headline on Saturday (June 11).
The seven-date tour is said to be the final leg of Black Sabbath’s farewell tour ‘The End’, which began in January.
On his solo interview tour An Audience With in Birmingham in March, guitarist Tony Iommi confirmed he hoped the band’s final show would be in Birmingham. Iommi said: “When we’re home where we started, we always find it a bit nervewracking. But Birmingham means such a lot to us. It would be nice to think it could finish where it all started, in Birmingham.”
The classic Black Sabbath line-up of Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward reformed in 2011. Ward, who this week announced his new band Day Of Errors, quit before the reunion tour began. They’ ve since released one new album, ‘13’, in 2013 which featured Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk in Ward's place.
