The Halifax date is part of the band’s final shows of their 2013-2014 world tour in support of their first studio album in 35 years, 13, which entered the charts at #1 in 13 countries (including their first #1 in the U.S.).

For more than three decades, rock fans have hoped for the return of BLACK SABBATH, but few could have predicted the forceful return-to-form of 13, which was produced by seven-time Grammy-Award winning producer Rick Rubin.  With epic songs like “God Is Dead?,” “End of the Beginning” and “Loner,” 13 is a testament to the enduring relevance of BLACK SABBATH's long-running reign.  The original BLACK SABBATH has sold over 70 million albums worldwide.

BLACK SABBATH--OZZY OSBOURNE (vocals), TONY IOMMI (guitar) and GEEZER BUTLER (bass)--launched their 2013 world tour on April 20.  The fall European tour launch coincides with the release of “Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses” DVD, Blu-Ray, combo pack and deluxe box.  Filmed April 29 and May 1, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia, “Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses” features the first-ever live performances of songs from the band’s 2013 critically acclaimed 13 album, along with BLACK SABBATH classics.
