The most legendary heavy metal band out there is coming to Phoenix next year.
The band announced today that it would extend its 2016 tour into Phoenix. The tour finale is scheduled to take place on September 21 at Ak-Chin Pavilion.
It's not just the tour finale. If you believe the press release sent out by Live Nation, it will be the the last show the band ever plays.
"The massive 2016 world tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time marks THE END for Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler as they close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible BLACK SABBATH story with this tour. BLACK SABBATH’s THE END farewell tour promises to surpass all previous tours and will feature the band’s most mesmerizing production ever.
"When this tour concludes, it will truly be THE END, THE END of one of most legendary bands in Rock ’n Roll history...BLACK SABBATH."
It's truly the end of an era.
