Sabbath announce rescheduled Canada gigs

Black Sabbath have rescheduled the three Canadian dates that were pulled as Ozzy Osbourne fought off sinusitis.

Gigs in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver scheduled for January 30, February 1 and February 3 as part of Sabbath’s The End tour were cancelled at short notice, with the tour getting back in track at the Tacoma Dome in Washington state last weekend.

Now the band have confirmed new dates for the three pulled shows. They’ll play at Edmonton’s Rexall Place on March 2, Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome on March 4 and at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver on March 7.

Sabbath say in a statement: “Previously purchased tickets will be honoured at the door on the new date. Fans are not required to re-purchase or exchange their tickets.

“Ticketholders unable to attend the new date will be notified by email from Ticketmaster on refund options.”

The band are on the road for the last time, with the current final date scheduled for Phoenix, Arizona, on September 21. However, the tour is expected to run into 2017 with more dates on the horizon, including a headline slot at this year’s Download.
