Black Sabbath Fans Reveal Special 45th Anniversary Plans

(Classic Rock) A group of Black Sabbath fans have announced that they will gather in the rehearsal space where the band honed their sound for a listening party this weekend.

Up to 50 people are expected to attend the Ozzy Zig, The Witch + The Warpig event at Birmingham's Newtown Community Centre on September 20 (Sunday) where 1970 albums Black Sabbath and Paranoid will be played and a range of Sabbath-related items will be on display in celebration of the 45th anniversary of the band's debut.

The event was organized by rock historian Rob Horrocks, who is the man behind a Birmingham walking tour called Crossroads Of Sabbath. Horrocks tells the Birmingham Mail: "Black Sabbath are the world's most successful rock band to have come from such a small area. People have always talked about the influence of the Beatles but I wonder if, in 100 years time, they will be talking about Black Sabbath more." Read more here.
