Black Sabbath has unveiled the details of the home video release for The End, the concert film that captured the legendary band's farewell performance in its hometown of Birmingham, England last February.
The November 17th release will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and CD. A limited edition deluxe collector’s edition will include a 32-page book, a metal winged demon pin, a replica of the "The End" tour laminate and three guitar picks housed in a mirror board box.
Also featured on the CD will be The Angelic Sessions, an intimate live performance at Angelic Studios recorded in the days after the Birmingham shows. The session features the band playing a selection of their favorite songs not played on tour, including "The Wizard," "Wicked World," "Tomorrow's Dream," "Sweet Leaf" and "Changes."
The concert performance features the entire final live show from February 4th, 2017, with the 16-song set including classics such as "War Pigs," "Fairies Wear Boots," "Into The Void," "Iron Man," "Snowblind" and "Paranoid.”
Pre-orders are available now for The End via PledgeMusic, where exclusive bundles, such as the deluxe box set, can be found.
Ozzy Osbourne told us not long ago that he's glad that Sabbath has come full circle: "Black Sabbath has been through the mill over the years, but to come back and be friends with my buddies who I started off with all those years ago, it's a closure for me, a chapter of my life which I can say, 'Well, we came, we saw, we had a good time and now it's over.' I'm glad we ended up happy. Whatever axes we had to grind between us over the years, we got rid of all that and we're friends again.”
The End had a limited theatrical run last month and will make its cable premiere on October 28th via Showtime.
The band decided to make this tour its last because guitarist Tony Iommi, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and is currently in remission, can no longer travel for extended amounts of time.
