Well we all didn’t really know if it was going to happen or not, but Overdrive can now confirm that Black Sabbath will be kicking off the last run of their European dates in Ireland and the UK with an exclusive date in Ireland’s 3 Areana on Friday January 20th!

Black Sabbath

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.

Now it ENDS, the final eight shows EVER by the greatest Metal Band of all time, BLACK SABBATH.  Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler return home to close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible BLACK SABBATH story.
