Black Sabbath Announce Release Date for ‘The End’ Concert Video
If you missed the one-night only screening of Black Sabbath's The End of the End movie, which documented their last-ever concerts, last week, you're in luck. They will release the audio and video on Nov. 17 as, simply, The End.
They performed the two farewell shows from which The End was taken this past February at the Genting Arena in their hometown of Birmingham, England. It was directed by Dick Carruthers, who also helmed Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day, their 2007 reunion concert.
“To bring it all back home after all these years was pretty special,” Black Sabbath said in a press release when the film's screening was announced. “It was so hard to say goodbye to the fans, who’ve been incredibly loyal to us through the years. We never dreamed in the early days that we’d be here 49 years later, doing our last show on our home turf.”
You can pre-order it on two CDs, three LPs, a Blu-ray or a three-disc Blu-ray/CD combo over at Amazon. The Blu-ray includes performances of five extra songs that weren't played on their final tour that they recorded at Angelic Studios, while the limited-edition combo adds a 32-page book, a winged demon badge, a replica tour laminate and three guitar picks. They also have numerous merchandise bundles for sale over at PledgeMusic. Check out the track listing below and watch a clip of "Children of the Grave" from the concert here.
