Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath in the studio
This event has finished
Having released 13 in June – and being promoted as the first studio album since 1978’s Never Say Die! to feature Black Sabbath’s original lineup despite the fact that vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler are without founding drummer Bill Ward after contract disputes – three-fourths of the legendary British heavy metal band perform together in Brazil for the first time.
After decades of sporadic reunion tours, they've finally got a new set of material to choose from, including the lengthy tracks ‘God Is Dead?’ and ‘End of the Beginning’ (both clocking in at over eight minutes). But 21st-century tracks aside, expect to hear heavy late '60s and '70s classics like ‘Iron Man’, ‘Paranoid’, ‘War Pigs’, ‘Children of the Grave’ and ‘Hole in the Sky’.
Megadeth – metal veterans themselves – open the show, in support of their latest studio release, Super Collider, their fourteenth with founding vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine leading the way.
