Formed in 1970, Sabbath recently wrapped up the U.S. leg of their farewell “The End” tour, which, if they keep to their word, will be the final American chapter for the band considered by many to be the most important metal band of all time. The band is currently on tour in Europe. See the tour dates below.

Meanwhile, Ozzy Osbourne has announced his full first U.S. solo date since 2011. He’ll be performing at Chicago Open Air on July 16.  Ticket info here. More to come?
