This is it for the band that defined ‘Heavy Metal’. Black Sabbath play their final show tonight at Birmingham Genting Arena. “The End” farewell tour, featuring Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, Tony Iommi on guitar and Geezer Butler on bass started late January including seven gigs. Prince of darkness Ozzy Osbourne said: “Since I’ve got to this building, I’ve been happy, I’ve been tearful. Let’s see what happens.

Black Sabbath will remain forever in our hearts and for generations to come, will be the the band that invented heavy metal. A truely pioneering bunch of ‘hobos’ that managed the impracticable: Give birth to heavy metal and getting it from the underground venues to our living rooms.

This is the beginning of the end...?
