Showtime has announced an October 28 broadcast date for BLACK SABBATH‘s “The End Of The End”, which chronicles the final tour from the band that spawned the heavy metal genre.
On February 4, 2017, BLACK SABBATH stormed the stage in their hometown of Birmingham, England to play the eighty-first 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 End Of The End” 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. The BLACK SABBATH members 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 film offers viewers the chance to witness BLACK SABBATH‘s swansong. As Ozzy Osbourne 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. 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 was distributed to cinemas worldwide by Trafalgar Releasing on September 28 and included the historic final gig as well as unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the band, filmed by director Dick Carruthers (“Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day”).
