Black Sabbath Announce Australian Tour, 2013

Written by Marc Zanotti on October 31, 2012

It’s official: iconic metal band Black Sabbath have announced that they will be touring Australia next year. Rumours of Black Sabbath raining down fire and brimstone upon our shores gained traction earlier this evening after touring company Live Nation posted a video (since removed) on their Australian/New Zealand Facebook page that concluded with ‘chanting masses’ and links to Black Sabbath merch.

Since that time an image was posted at 7pm sharp that simply reads “4 Hours #darknessdecends”, with the attached comment from Live Nation Australia & New Zealand, “There’ll be no tricks this year… In four hours we have a MAJOR Halloween treat for you…”

Some comments under the post claimed to have already seen the tour dates for Sabbath, with one commenter writing, “It’s Sabbath. They had the dates splashed all over their website this morning for a few minutes.”

Well, it seems that the predictions were correct and the suspense is finally over as Black Sabbath (currently consisting of original members Geezer Butler, Tony Iomni and Ozzy Osbourne) will be in Australia during April and May of next year. They will most likely be armed with a brand new album, and fans should expect new songs such as God Is Dead, and classics including War Pigs and Paranoid

UPDATE: 28/02/13 – Adelaide Black Sabbath fans – your prayers have been answered! The band have announced one show only at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Tuesday, 7th May. This will be the very last show of Black Sabbath’s Australian tour before they head to Japan to headline the country’s inaugural edition of OzzFest.
