The Black Sabbath tour ended on February 4, 2017, with The End performing last in Birmingham, England. And, even if the turn has gained that name, there is the possibility of the band appearing again.
During a charity event in Birmingham, guitarist Tony Iommi talked about future Black Sabbath performances.
“It’s very unlikely, but it can happen. You can never say never, because we’ve done it before … So many artists say that it’s over and they play together again. I hope we can do some shows here and there, but world tours I don’t think so, because it’s very tiring.”
The guitarist explained why the band had decided to put an end to the tours:
“People think our lives are great. And it really is, but it’s a routine that affects our bodies. All these trips and time zones. End shows at 11pm. What we usually did was allocate us to a location, New York, for example, and stay there for 10 days. So we flew to do a show and we went back. So when we got to the hotel, it was already four or five in the morning. And you don’t see the time pass, you can’t sleep. And that’s the hard part.”
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
