Black Sabbath announce details of their farewell tour

Metal pioneers Black Sabbath have announced that they are to tour one last time, unveiling a farewell tour they've named 'The End'. The tour will see the three surviving members of the band's original line-up – singer Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler – performing 24 dates across the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Sadly though fans in the UK and the rest of Europe look set to miss out, with no dates currently planned either here or on the continent. However, more dates are reportedly set to be announced in October.

The tour was announced last night via a video on the band's website, which stated: “It promises to surpass all previous tours with their most mesmerizing production ever. When the tour concludes, it will truly be the end.”

The tour will include a performance at New York's Madison Square Garden, but will kick off with a show in Omaha, Nebraska on January 20th next year and will conclude with a performance in Dunedin, New Zealand on April 30th.
