“The End of The End” chronicles the final tour from the band that spawned the metal genre–BLACK SABBATH. On February, 4 2017, BLACK SABBATH stormed the stage in e U.K. in their hometown of Birmingham, to play the 81st and final triumphant gig of “The End” tour. This monumental show brought down the curtain on a career that spanned almost half a century.
The sold-out performance marked the culmination of a global tour that saw the band play to over one and a half million fans. With their inception in 1968, BLACK SABBATH pioneered a sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, and to this day continues to influence bands the world over.
The film brings fans the up close and personal story of the final, emotionally charged concert, as the band perform hits including “Iron Man,” “Paranoid,” “War Pigs” and many more. BLACK SABBATH are also seen in the studio, as they deliver unique and exclusive performances of some of their favorite songs not played on the tour, and catch an intimate glimpse into the band’s world: the music, relationships and banter, alongside personal anecdotes.
The band said: “To bring it all back home after all these years was pretty special. It was so hard to say goodbye to the fans, who’ve been incredibly loyal to us through the years. We never dreamed in the early days that we’d be here 49 years later doing our last show on our home turf.”
“The End of The End” offers viewers the chance to witness BLACK SABBATH‘s swansong. As OZZY says, “What a journey we’ve all had. It’s fucking amazing.” This is the final word from the greatest heavy metal band of all time.
Marc Allenby from Trafalgar Releasing said: “Trafalgar Releasing are excited to be expanding our music events with the legendary band, BLACK SABBATH, and their final ever historic show. We look forward to collaborating with Eagle Rockand BLACK SABBATH‘s management on ‘The End of the End’.”
