Heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath will hit the road with three of its four longtime members performing what may indeed be their final tour. Las Vegas nabbed one of 24 worldwide dates for “The End” tour, which kicks off in January and lands at Mandalay Bay Events Center on Feb. 13.

Frontman John “Ozzy” Osbourne, Anthony “Tony” Iommi on guitar and Terence “Geezer” Butler on bass reunite for this 24-date 2016 farewell tour.

The band that helped define an entire genre of music got started in Birmingham, England, in 1968. “Iron Man,” “Children of the Grave” and “Heaven and Hell” are a few of the band’s biggest hits.

Some of their groundbreaking albums include the self-titled debut that came out in 1970, “Paranoid,” and “Master of Reality.”


Black Sabbath sold more than 70 million records worldwide, earning the title “greatest metal band of all time” from MTV.
