The concert in Moscow on 1 June 2014, at Olympic stadium was one of the most important shows of the world tour 2013-2014 in support of the band's last studio album, recorded by original line up for the first time in 35 years. The album "13" is literally "blew up" the charts of radio stations in thirteen countries of the world, including the United States.

For over three decades, rock/metal fans worldwide were waiting for original Sabbath reunion, but few people could have foreseen such a glorious return, with a new album and concert tour. 

The new album includes compositions, such as "God is dead?" , "End of the Beginning" and "Lоner" that have already become hits. There is no doubt that with the new album legendary rockers from Birmingham have established their strong leadership position in the world of hard and heavy, and justified their status as fathers - creators of heavy metal. Black Sabbath sold over 70 million copies of records around the world. 

Legendary vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Terry Geezer Butler and Sabbath's primary composer Guitar Superstar Tony Iommi, started the world tour 2013 on 20 April.
