Black Sabbath Tickets

The Black Sabbath band is considered to be the founding father of heavy metal. The music they began doing at the end of the 60's was the basis for the heavy music in the next decades. The quartet was first gathered in Birmingham in 1968: The guitarist and main music writer Tony Iommi, the bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, vocalist Ozzy Osborne and the drummer Bill Ward.

History

The initial line-up was active up to 1977, releasing 7 successful albums, considered to be groundbreaking in the Heavy Metal genre, including: Paranoid, Masters of Reality, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and more. In 1977 Osborne left the band, tried to come back a year later, but replaced in 1979 by Ronnie James Dio. The reason for changing the vocalist was Osborne's addiction to drugs and alcohol and while his colorful and dazzling persona contributed to the popularity of the group, sometimes the price it took was way too high. During the 80's and the 90's the band changed its line-up constantly, until finally re-uniting with Ozzy in 1997. At this round they continued to perform together until 2006. Between 2006 and 2010 the band was renamed into Heave & Hell and performed with Ronnie James Dio until his death in 2010. During the years when not performing with Black Sabbath – the singer with the peculiar sense of humor (his first act of head-biting was when he bit off a dove's head during a press-conference, hoping the spectators will see "the funny side of the situation") released solo albums, established and confirmed his status of "Prince of Darkness". This was done with the support of his wife Sharon and their unusual family, being started in a reality-show on MTV, among all other appearances in the media.

The accomplishments of the group

Black Sabbath sold 70 million record worldwide, won a Grammy as the best Metal performance, introduced in the Hall of Fame of Music in the US (since 2005) and the Hall of Fame of Rock n roll (since 2006). One of the contributing factors of the unique sound created by the band is the low key of guitars, which was a necessary measure considering that Tonny Iommi lost the tips of few of his fingers on the right hand in a work accident when he worked in a factory in the age of 17. Instead of playing left-hand or giving it up completely, he created a special substitutes to put over his damaged fingers and lowered the tune of the guitar, creating a dark vibe unprecedented in the world of non-conformed music. The first album of the band was recorded during 1 day and almost just 1 take, costing 800 pounds. And as commented later by the father of Osborne: "Are you sure you were just drinking alcohol while recording this? That's not music, it's something weird!" – and how right he was.

Black Sabbath these days

After lots of debates, rumors and expectations, the reunited line-up of Black Sabbath released a new album "13" in 2013 and has been on tour since 2014. In September 2015 it was stated that ongoing tour will be the last one, continuing up to February 2017, completing with 2 performances in the hometown of the band Birmingham – on February 2nd and 4th.
