Black Sabbath Is Officially Over
Black Sabbath have officially announced The End.
The band posted two images on their Facebook page – one with an image reading “Black Sabbath 1968-2017” and another showing Geezer Butler, Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi on stage early in their career.
While the band wrapped up their 81-date The End tour in Birmingham last month, signing off with their classic 1970 hit Paranoid in front of a sold out show at the city’s Genting Arena, guitarist Iommi has previously hinted that one-off shows could happen in the future.
But could that possibility be in doubt in light of the two new social media posts?
In a recent interview with Classic Rock when asked if playing another show in Birmingham to mark their 50th anniversary next year could happen, Iommi says: “It would be nice, wouldn’t it? But again, there’s nothing planned. Not to my knowledge, anyway, but if we were offered something like that I think it would be great.”
He adds: “That’s the problem, you see. We don’t want to call it The End and then go off on another tour. One-off events? Yeah, I’d have no problem with that. I don’t think any of us wanted Sabbath to stop, but it got to the point where, for me, I needed it to.”
