1I feel like all bands are starting to follow the same suit as Motley Crue by announcing “final tours” because legendary heavy metal band Black Sabbath has done so. Through a video that was released online via Youtube, Black Sabbath have announced their plans to call it quits once and for all. Unfortunately, Bill Ward is still not a part of the conversation so he will surely miss out on the final chapter. The video starts by saying, “It’s the beginning of the end. 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.” It then keeps going saying, “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 on 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 ‘n Roll history… Black Sabbath.” There is currently no word on whether a final album will be released, but as we all know we have heard them talk about it before. It’ll be interesting to see if this really is the end, but if you live in New England then you won’t have a chance to see this show. Check out the dates below:
