Exciting news for fans of heaviness! Minus original drummer Bill Ward (who is still feuding with lead singer Ozzy Osbourne), we've got the original lineup of one of the best rock bands in the history of forever, Black Sabbath. This tour ("The End Tour ") is touted as their very last tour, so how can you miss it?


UPDATED: Sabbath is already slated to perform at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Friday, February 19, 2016. Tickets will go on sale this Sat., October 31 for a new show, later in the year, at  DTE Energy Music Theatre on August 31. 

Due to overwhelming demand, the road to THE END just got longer.

On the heels of their much-anticipated performances in North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, BLACK SABBATH will end the epic journey they began nearly five decades ago with another run of North American dates in fall 2016. These shows will follow a mix of summer headlining and festival performances throughout Europe.

The second run of North American dates kicks off August 17 at Jones Beach Amphitheater in New York and includes stops at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (where the band last performed a sold-out show on their wildly successful 13 world tour in 2014), Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, Detroit, and Dallas, among others, before wrapping September 21 at AK-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ.

The massive 2016 world tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time marks THE END for Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler as they close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible BLACK SABBATH story with this tour. BLACK SABBATH’s THE END farewell tour promises to surpass all previous tours and will feature the band’s 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...BLACK SABBATH
