Black Sabbath announce intimate homecoming show

tickets will go on sale on Friday

news: Monday 30th April 2012

Before their headline performance at this year's Download Festival, Birmingham's own heavy metal legends Black Sabbath return to their home city for the first time in thirteen years for an intimate homecoming show at the O2 Academy in Birmingham on Saturday, 19th May. A donation to Help for Heroes will be made from the proceeds of the show.

The reformed band of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler (but not drummer Bill Ward) return to their hometown for this show following last year's announcement that the band are currently working on their first studio album in thirty three years. It will be their ninth studio album together and their first since 1978's 'Never Say Die'!

Following the release of their self-titled debut album in 1970, Black Sabbath have gone on to release eight acclaimed studio albums and sell over seventy million albums worldwide.

Black Sabbath will also headline the legendary Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago this August before returning to the studio to finish recording their long-awaited studio album.

Tickets are priced at £45 and go on sale at 9am on Friday 4th May, and eGigs will have links to buy them then.
