BLACK SABBATH Extend World Tour Into 2014
Following wildly successful shows in North and South America, Australia, Asia and now Europe (which kicks off November 20 in Helsinki, Finland), BLACK SABBATH have announced additional shows in North America and Europe in 2014. The 2014 North American dates launch March 31 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY and will hit ten cities in Canada, including stops in Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton, before wrapping April 26 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets for the North American dates go on sale beginning Friday, November 22 at www.livenation.com Beginning today, fans can visit (http://bit.ly/RSVPBlackSabbath) to RSVP for early access to presale tickets available Wednesday, November 20.
These dates will be part of the band’s final shows of their 2013-2014 world tour in support of their first studio album in 35 years, 13, which entered the charts at #1 in 13 countries (including their first #1 in the U.S.).
For more than three decades, rock fans have hoped for the return of BLACK SABBATH, but few could have predicted the forceful return-to-form of 13, which was produced by seven-time Grammy-Award winning producer Rick Rubin. With epic songs like “God Is Dead?,” “End of the Beginning” and “Loner,” 13 is a testament to the enduring relevance of BLACK SABBATH‘s long-running reign. The original BLACK SABBATH has sold over 70 million albums worldwide.
BLACK SABBATH–OZZY OSBOURNE (vocals), TONY IOMMI (guitar) and GEEZER BUTLER (bass)–launched their 2013 world tour on April 20. The fall European tour launch coincides with the release of “Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses” DVD, Blu-Ray, combo pack and deluxe box. Filmed April 29 and May 1, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia, “Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses” features the first-ever live performances of songs from the band’s 2013 critically acclaimed 13 album, along with BLACK SABBATH classics.
