    Black Sabbath have announced "The End," their farewell tour set to kick off in January. The group is promising concerts that "surpass all previous tours with their most mesmerizing production ever." The North American leg begins in January in Omaha and ends in February at New York City's Madison Square Garden. The band will do a leg in Australia and New Zealand in April and will be announcing more shows next month.


    As with the group's reunion album, 13, and its subsequent tours, the Black Sabbath lineup on this tour will consist of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler. Although they did not specify who would be playing drums, the drummer from Osbourne's solo group, Tommy Clufetos, played all of the previous dates. Prior to recording the LP, the band had a falling out with original drummer Bill Ward, who told Rolling Stone in April that he did not know whether or not he was still a group member.

    "I wish them well, and I have no further comment," Ward tells Rolling Stone in a statement about this tour.




    Osbourne has said previously that the group would also be recording a final album. Last September, he told Metal Hammer that he was hoping to begin writing sessions with his bandmates in early 2015. "If we're going to do [it], I want to do it before I'm 70," the 66-year-old rocker said. "Time isn't on our side. So [Sharon Osbourne] made the call and came back and said, 'Yeah, the record company wants another album.' I believe Rick Rubin is going to do it with us again." Black Sabbath's tour announcement did not mention a new record.

    That's a fairly intense schedule for a gaggle of senior citizens.
