Black Sabbath Announces 'The End' World Tour

Black Sabbath have revealed the dates and details of their final world tour. 

The end of the road for the metal godfathers has been in sight for some time, however, the recently announced dates, billed as "The End", officially mark the outfit's final ever live dates.

 “It promises to surpass all previous tours with their most mesmerizing production ever. When the tour concludes, it will truly be the end,” said a voiceover on a video announcement on the band’s website.

The tour begins in Omaha, Nebraska and will take in 24 dates stretching the US, including at New York's Madison Square Garden, along with dates in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

However, the tour does not feature any shows in Europe or the UK.

Last year, Ozzy Osbourne said the trio were planning on recording and releasing one final album with producer Rick Rubin, but there's no mention of any new music to coincide with the final tour announcement .

The official press release reads as follows:

"It's the Beginning of The End.

"It started nearly five decades ago with a crack of thunder, a distant bell ringing and then that monstrous riff that shook the earth. The heaviest rock sound ever heard.

"In that moment Heavy Metal was born, created by a young band from Birmingham, England barely out of their teens.

"Now it ENDS, the final tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time, Black Sabbath. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible Black Sabbath story.

"Black Sabbath's farewell tour, 'The End', begins on January 20, 2016 and it promises to surpass all previous tours with their 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…"
