Black Sabbath Tour News and Updates
2014 Reunion Tour
11/19/13- In support of their No.1 comeback album, 13, Black Sabbath has been busy touring around the world in 2013, but fans will be happy to know that the group announced a string of North American tour dates in 2014! Starting off in Brooklyn, N.Y., at Barclays Center
(Mar 31), the band will trek across Canada before closing out in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl (Apr 26). The veteran heavy-metal legends released 13 in June, and features lead singer Ozzy Osbourne’s vocals for the first time since 1978. His return means fans will get to hear hits like “Paranoid”, “Iron Man” and “Children of the Grave” on stage in true form! Black Sabbath faithfuls: don’t miss out on this reunion and get your tickets to finally see Ozzy rock out live!
As the 2013 Reunion Tour winds down, Black Sabbath fans hope this isn’t the legendary rockers’ last hurrah. After reuniting with the band for their recent 13 album, Ozzie Osbourne hopes estranged drummer Bill Ward will join fellow original band-members Tommy Iommi and Gezzer Butler to record new music. Released on 7/10, 13 is Sabbath’s first studio album with Ozzie in almost 35 years. The Prince of Darkness hopes his return will help metal fans forget his unflattering years as an MTV reality star.
Behind the first single “God is Dead?”, 13 became Black Sabbath’s first–ever #1 album on the US Billboard Charts. The album also passed Bob Dylan for the longest time between #1 singles on the UK Albums Chart. Their last UK #1 album Paranoid was released 42 years ago in 1970 and includes legendary rock anthem “Iron Man”. After decades of performing, bassist Butler has implies that the current Reunion Tour may be the band’s last.
While the majority of the North American leg is complete, some west coast fans still have a chance to see Sabbath live. The final North American show on the current tour and maybe ever comes on 9/3 at the L.A. Sports Arena. The Reunion Tour then makes its way to Latin America before concluding with a European Leg. The tour ends back where it all began in Burmingham, England, with two shows on 12/20 and 12/20 in what could be Black Sabbath’s grand finale.
