Black Sabbath Books North American 2014 Dates

Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler are headed back across the pond in March for a dozen dates in the U.S. and Canada. The new gigs make up some of Black Sabbath’s final shows of the world tour in support of the band’s latest album.

As you all know, this tour and the new LP are a big deal. 13 marks Black Sabbath’s first studio album with Osbourne since 1978’s Never Say Die!

According to reviews of the tour, it was well worth the wait.

The Washington Post wrote Aug. 2, “This summer, the deities of rock-and-roll have come roaring through town, loud and reliable, like evening thunderstorms…”

Later that month the band rumbled into Phoenix, Ariz., with a stop at the 19,000-capacity US Airways Center.  

The Republic reported Aug. 31, “The fact that they’re still out there packing rooms the size of US Airways Center after four decades is a testament to Sabbath’s staying power and their legacy as metal’s undisputed masters.”

Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has had public disputes with the band and was absent from the new album and tour. Tommy Clufetos, who plays drums for Ozzy’s solo band, is filling in for Ward on the current tour.
