Black Sabbath

(hennemusic) Two members of Black Sabbath will be on hand for the official naming ceremony naming of the "Black Sabbath Bridge" in the band's Birmingham, UK hometown later this month.

Set for Wednesday, June 26 at 3 pm, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler will arrive at the event aboard a narrowboat to unveil the new bridge signage from the canal below the bridge in the city's entertainment district, with hundreds of fans expected to attend.

Westside Business Improvement District (BID) has worked closely with the Canal & River Trust charity and Birmingham City Council to have the bridge renamed as "Black Sabbath Bridge." Black Sabbath tribute band Sabbra Cadabra will be based on a nearby canal island to provide heavy metal entertainment throughout the event.

"The bridge name and commemorative bench are both terrific," says Iommi, "and we're thrilled that everyone can now enjoy what has become a special location for Black Sabbath history."

"I can't wait for what's going to be such a memorable event," added Butler, "and one where I can once again thank the loyalty of our great fans."

The unveiling coincides with a major Home Of Metal exhibition celebrating Black Sabbath and the band's legacy, which runs from June 26 to September 29 at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. Read more and see a rendering here.
