The end has finally arrived for Black Sabbath. The heavy metal pioneers will play their final show this Saturday, February 4, at the Genting Arena in the band's hometown of Birmingham, England.
Founding members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler -- but not original drummer Bill Ward -- launched their farewell tour, fittingly dubbed The End, in January 2016.
