It was their last ever show before the curtain closes on what has been an illustrious, nearly five-decade career for the pioneers of Heavy Metal.  This was the gig that every Black Sabbath fan wanted to attend as Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and drummer Tommy Clufetos, took to the stage for one last time. And they didn’t disappoint, performing some of the band’s greatest hits to a sell-out audience of 14,500 at the Genting Arena in their hometown of Birmingham.

For the band to culminate their farewell - ‘The End’ - tour, at the Genting Arena was a great honour for the venue.  Guy Dunstan, General Manager of the NEC Group Arenas, said: “This is a monumental evening that will go down in history, and I am very thankful that the Genting Arena had the opportunity to be a part of it.  For Black Sabbath to perform their final show back here in their city, where it all began, was a very apt end to what has been an outstanding career for the band.”
