Black Sabbath add new Birmingham date due to huge demand!


According to Birmingham Mail,  Rock legends to play NIA after LG Arena Christmas concert sells out.

A ticket- buying frenzy has led to rock legends Black Sabbath adding a second city date to their reunion world tour. The legendary rockers announced a second show after almost all of the 15,000-odd tickets for the December 20 concert were snapped up in a matter of hours. It means their eagerly-awaited tour will still end with a historic homecoming show, but it will now be at the NIA on Sunday, December 22.

Guitarist Tony Iommi, 65, has bravely committed himself to the tour and the recording of a new album despite battling cancer, said: “To be finishing off our European tour dates in Birmingham just before Christmas is great.”

“There’s no place quite like your hometown.”

“No place quite like Birmingham.”

“It’ll be all our Christmasses come together.”

The tour, which starts in New Zealand on Saturday, comes as the group prepare to release “13”, their 19th studio album, in June.

A spokesman for the NEC Group, which manages the LG Arena and the NIA, said: “Tickets have been selling very well with only a limited number left for the LG Arena show. It just goes to show how popular the band still are.”
