Crossroads Of Sabbath tours in Birmingham


Planning to visit Birmingham and want to do a real Sabbathy tour around the city? Do you want to visit all places where our guys were born, raised, went to school, rehearsed, and the first clubs they played in? 

Today a special team exists, that will be happy to show and tell the world Birmingham's great music Legacy. We can learn more and contact these great folks on their Official website Crossroads Of Sabbath.

The Crossroads of Sabbath walking tour is an opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Ozzy, Geezer, Tony and Bill and learn about the environment that shaped them. The tour lasts approximately 2 hours.

Black Sabbath are unique. No other Rock N Roll Hall of Fame inductee can make the claim that all its original members grew up is such close proximity to each other. And no other Rock N Roll Hall of Fame inductee is as widely acknowledged by peers, critics and fans as having given birth to a genre that is still as relevant, vibrant and global in its reach as Heavy Metal is to this day.

Much has been made of the influence of the band’s environment on the sounds they made when they first entered a rehearsal room together. On the Crossroads of Sabbath tour you see this environment and learn about it during the period when the Sabbs called it home.

You will pass the schools, homes, rehearsal spaces and hangouts of band members and hear stories associated with them. The narration has been developed using local history sources with the intention of presenting a full, thick and heavy picture of life in the area during the period when our heroes roamed its streets.

If you have read all the books and seen all the films about Black Sabbath you will see many of the locations referred to in those texts. You will also be introduced to places and ideas not so widely known in the Sabbath tale. And you will feel them.
