Fresh off headlining Download 2016, legendary metal band Black Sabbath have confirmed plans to play Birmingham's Genting Arena on Thursday, 2nd February 2017 for the first of two hometown gigs as part of their final run of UK tour dates on their final ever tour: The End. This will be their second-to-last show ever.
Tickets are on sale as of Friday, 17th June with prices starting at £60 from Gigantic and Ticketmaster, which have since sold out. Compare prices on the secondary resale market below.
Black Sabbath set the distorted power chord chugging, scale climbing, and howling vocal "metal" trend that so many bands since have cited as an influence and tried to emulate. The trio of vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Toni Iomi, and bassist Geezer Butler, all original members, plus former Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave drummer, Brad Wilk, came together to record and release '13,' which went on to be the band's first-ever chart-topping album in the United States.
Since then they have gone out on tour across the world (with Wilk and with other touring drummers) and have just announced the final leg of their final The End ever tour which will see them wrap things up where they all began: the UK, and, at home, in Birmingham.
Touring behind a "best of" setlist, fans won't be disappointed, as all the hits are being played, including: "Paranoid," "War Pigs," "Iron Man," "Black Sabbath," "Children of the Grave," among others.
They'll be joined by California power blues rockers Rival Sons who are out in support of new release 'Hollow Bones.' 'Hollow Bones' is Rival Sons fifth record, and their follow up to 2014's 'Great Western Valkyrie.'
Last time in town, Sabbath rocked this house at the LG Arena back in 2013 on their reunion tour behind then new album, '13.'
