Today, Black Sabbath announced that after 47 years they have decided to do one final tour and then call it quits.
The band has announced tour dates in 2016, being called The End. Black Sabbath founding members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler will hit the road starting on January 20 in Nebraska and continue into April with dates in Australia and New Zealand. The opening band on the North American leg is Rival Sons.
More shows are expected to be announced in October. Check below for the full tour dates and information about presale codes and passwords.

It looks like founding drummer Bill Ward will unfortunately not be part of this final tour. He's been on the outs with the other three founding members since 2012, and the promotional material so far has excluded his name. Ozzy Osbourne has said that he'd like to record a final album, as well.
