After years of touring and a successful comeback album in 13, the mighty Black Sabbath is putting an end to a successful career by embarking on a farewell tour. The tour includes a stop at Montreal’s Bell Centre on Feb. 23 and comes to a very end (in North America) with a stop at the world’s greatest stage at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Feb. 25.
Earlier this week Black Sabbath released the following statement:
“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.
“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 most legendary bands in Rock ‘n Roll history…”
