HISTORY IS MADE AS BLACK SABBATH PERFORM FINAL SHOW BACK IN BIRMINGHAM

This was the gig that every Black Sabbath fan wanted to attend. The last ever show before the curtain closes on what has been an illustrious, nearly five-decade career for the pioneers of Heavy Metal.

This evening (4 February 2017), Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and their drummer Tommy Clufetos, took to the stage for one last time, and didn’t disappoint, performing some of the band’s greatest hits to a sell-out audience of 14,500 at the Genting Arena in their hometown of Birmingham.

For the band to culminate their farewell tour, THE END, at the Genting Arena was a great honour for the venue. General Manager of the NEC Group Arenas, Guy Dunstan, said: “This is a monumental evening that will go down in history, and I am very thankful that the Genting Arena has had the opportunity to be a part of it. For Black Sabbath to perform their final show back in the city where it all began, is a very apt end to what has been an outstanding career for the band.”
