As John Belushi’s “Bluto” Blutarsky said in National Lampoon’s Animal House: “Nothing is over until we say it is.” So, apparently, are the terms of Black Sabbath‘s retirement. The band’s extended, final tour, “The End,” which had its final date on February 4 in Birmingham, England, will return. Only this time it’s a concert movie, called The End of The End, which will play for one night, September 28, in movie theaters around the world via Trafalgar Releasing.

The End of The End chronicles the band’s final performance when they took to the stage in Birmingham, the city where it all began, to play the 81st and final gig of The End tour, bringing down the curtain on a career that spanned almost half a century. The sold-out show marked the culmination of a tour that had seen them play to well over a million fans in arenas across the globe.

A trailer from the movie was released on July 24. (Watch it below.)

From the announcement: “Since their beginnings in 1968, they created a sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, going on to influence bands all over the world. Fans are taken into the heart of the action, up close with the band on stage as they perform genre-defining hits, from ‘Iron Man” to ‘Paranoid’ to ‘War Pigs’, among others.”

The film also includes footage of the band in the studio “delivering a unique performance of some of their favorite songs. This film gives fans an intimate glimpse into the band’s relationships and their banter with individual and group recollections from Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler.

For tickets, visit the movie’s official website.

You can bet that The End of The End will be available this fall on CD, DVD and Blu-ray. Look closely at the movie poster. In the lower left corner, you can see a package with the words below: “The End. Live in Birmingham. Coming Soon.”
