Black Sabbath prolongs “The End” by adding new tour dates

Illustration for article titled Black Sabbath prolongs “The End” by adding new tour dates

When Black Sabbath announced the dates for its “The End” tour last year, the band promised that this would be the end. No more shows for all the many strange aeons to come, as the legendary band was retiring to the ink-black shade of the netherworld. Realistically, though, a musician has got to put food on the sacrificial altar, and adding new dates to a farewell tour does not technically constitute a new tour. (The devil is in the details, after all.)


At any rate, it seems highly unlikely that any of Sabbath’s millions of fans are going to complain about another final opportunity to see Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler. Four months after their last show in New York City, Fact reports that the legendary progenitors of heavy metal have announced that they will continue their farewell tour on June 11 in their native U.K. before hopping around Europe and heading stateside in August. The final tour should reach its finality in Sao Paulo, Brazil this December. Though, at this point, who knows?
