Black Sabbath Add Festival Stops To Farewell Tour

(hennemusic) Black Sabbath have added a pair of festival dates to their farewell tour of Europe. Over the June 3-5, 2016 weekend, the band will perform at Germany's Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park events.

Both festivals share the same lineup over the course of the three days. Black Sabbath's 2016 tour, billed as "The End", marks the group's final series of live shows after a five-decade career.

The extensive run begins January 20 in Omaha, NE before dates in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and a return to North America. Guitarist Tony Iommi recently revealed that his cancer issues have brought about the need for the farewell run after five decades on the road. "I can't actually do this anymore," said Iommi. "My body won't take it much more."

The 67-year old - who was diagnosed with blood cancer lymphoma in January of 2012 - continues to have regular checkups on the health issue. Read more here.
