BLACK SABBATH’s farewell tour, THE END, is currently wowing fans all over Europe, surpassing all previous tours with their most mesmerizing production ever. BLACK SABBATH has announced their final run of dates across the UK and Ireland. This leg of THE END tour will start on the 20th January 2017 at the 3 Arena in Dublin and will then hit arenas in Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, 2 nights at The O2 in London and will culminate in 2 nights in their hometown at the Genting Arena, Birmingham.
“Tony Iommi wants to do 80 shows,” SABBATH singer Ozzy Osbourne told Billboard.com. “We’re doing 80 shows. It’s good enough. I wouldn’t mind extending the tour for another few gigs. There’s a lot of people who won’t get to see us, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
Ozzy also made it clear it wasn’t he’s call to retire with the band, “It’s not me that wants to retire; it’s BLACK SABBATH. I’ll be continuing my own musical thing,” he says. “My wife is good at telling me partial information, y’know, but I know I’m not hanging ’em up for awhile. Being Ozzy Osbourne solo again is not a job. It’s a passion. It’s a love. It’s the biggest, greatest love affair of my life.”
