Black Sabbath performed their final farewell show on February 4, 2017 as part of their “The End of The End” tour. The final show took place at Genting Arena in Birmingham, England.
For those of us who missed it (read, most of us), the band has announced that the complete final show will be available to watch at movie theatres across the globe on September 28.
The film, directed by Dick Carruthers (previous director to Led Zeppelin’s reunion concert film Celebration Day), features all original members of the group minus Bill Ward who was absent due to financial disputes with the rest of the band.
Ozzy Osbourne told BBC that his emotions were “flying all over the place” when asked what he thought of wrapping up Black Sabbath’s nearly 50-year span. “Since I’ve got to this building today, I’ve been happy, I’ve been tearful. Let’s see what happens.” That was from the day before the event, following the show Rolling Stone declared it was “pure heavy metal mastery”.
Black Sabbath: The End of the End will be playing for one night only in more than 1,500 theatres around the world. You can see if there’s a local screening by checking out the band’s official film site. If you don’t see your city listed, you can DEMAND IT!
