Black Sabbath has announced that they will be embarking on their final tour.
The iconic metal band–composed of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Bill Ward, and Geezer Butler–will cap off their career in a tour called “The End.”
Earlier this year, Osbourne said that the band was planning on doing another tour. “We all live in different countries and some of them want to work and some of them don’t want to, I believe. But we are going to do another tour together,” he said in a press conference.
Osbourne said that once the band has finished touring and recording, he will continue his career as a solo artist. “I’m doing these few [solo] gigs down here [in South America] now. Then at the beginning of next year, I’m going out with SABBATH. The SABBATH thing is folding up after the next tour, but I’m gonna continue my solo career,” he added.
