Black Sabbath Launching Farewell Tour

Black Sabbath made big news on Thursday with the announcement of their farewell tour. We ran an immediate story but for those that missed it earlier in the morning in the Day In Rock report, we are reprinting it below:

Sabbath has been hinting about retiring for some time, but now they have made it official. On Thursday, Black Sabbath announced that they will be launching their farewell tour next year.

The band revealed the initial dates for their final trek including legs in North America as well as in Australia and New Zealand. The band plans to announce additional dates next month.

It appears that the tour will not include original drummer Bill Ward who left the group prior to the release of their reunion album, "13," due to a contract dispute.

As it stands now, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler will kick off the North American farewell tour leg on January 20th in Omaha, NE at the CenturyLink Center and conclude the trek on February 25th in New York City, NY at Madison Square Garden.

The tour of Australia and New Zealand is scheduled to begin on April 15th in Perth at the Perth Arena and wrap up on April 30th in Dunedin at the Forsyth Barr Stadium.
