Sabbath boys kick off The End tour in Omaha USA

 

Black Sabbath kicked off their final world tour last night in Omaha, Nebraska with a 14-song set largely dedicated to their most popular songs. You can see the full setlist and videos of several performances below.

Founding members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler were again joined by Tommy Clufetos, who took over for original drummer Bill Ward on Sabbath’s 2012-2014 reunion tour following a still-acrimonious split.

As hinted at on an promotional video highlighting the band’s rehearsal sessions for The End tour, 1970’s slow-burning, bass-heavy “Hand of Doom” was performed for the first time in almost 40 years, alongside expected classics such as opener “Black Sabbath,” “War Pigs” and “Children of the Grave.”

Black Sabbath's The End tour will extend into 2017, Rival Sons drummer Michael Miley has revealed. Rival Sons are opening for Sabbath on their farewell world tour and Miley says it'll go way beyond the dates already confirmed. As it stands, the last date confirmed is in Phoenix, Arizona, on September 21. Miley tells One On One With Mitch Lafon: "The dates go into 2017, but none of those are released. We don't even know what they are yet. I think this tour is going to keep going for a while. We have dates up until September. It's pretty unbelievable. It's an honour to be invited by Ozzy and Sharon to be the opening band direct support on their farewell tour."

The End tour got underway last night (January 20) in Omaha, Nebraska, and will head to Australia in April after the first of two North American legs wraps up in New York on February 25.

A limited-edition tour CD featuring eight previously unreleased tracks is available at Sabbath’s shows.
