(Classic Rock) A fan-focused project exploring the impact of Black Sabbath on arts and culture will go global on the day the band play their final show. The Home Of Metal program is currently based in the band's home city of Birmingham, where they'll perform the last two dates of their The End world tour on February 2 and 4 next year.

And on February 4, Home Of Metal creators Capsule will launch a three-year worldwide initiative after securing 450,000 in funding from Arts Council England.

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi says: "An artist or band's success can be measured by their relationship with the fans, and the Home Of Metal exhibition brought home just how dedicated and loyal ours are. It's always humbling to realize how you've touched people's lives with your music. A project where fans are actively involved will be great."

Capsule say they're "inspired by the story of how four working-class lads from Birmingham changed the face of music." They aim to extend their project to North America, Brazil, Chile, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and beyond, using an expanding digital archive, social media contact and international touring exhibitions.
