Black Sabbath have added further dates to their The End tour.

They headlined the Download festival on Saturday (July 11) and last week announced their final live performances would be in the UK and Ireland – including two final sets in their hometown of Birmingham.

But before they head back home, they’ll play their last ever live US shows in Oklahoma, Houston and San Antonio, before travelling to South America for gigs in Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Brazil.

Announcing their UK and Ireland shows, a statement read: “It started nearly five decades ago with a crack of thunder, a distant bell ringing and then that monstrous riff that shook the earth. The heaviest rock sound ever heard.

“In that moment, heavy metal was born, created by a young band from Birmingham, England, barely out of their teens.

“Now it ends – the final eight shows ever by the greatest metal band of all time, Black Sabbath. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler return home to close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible Black Sabbath story.”

The remaining shows on Black Sabbath’s The End tour can be found below, with the newly announced dates highlighted in bold.
