VIDEO: See Black Sabbath Rock During Final Concert in Teaser for Upcoming Doc
“The End of the End” screens in theaters for one night only on Sept. 28September 5, 2017
Black Sabbath delivers a dastardly rendition of “Children of the Grave” in a newly released teaser for “The End of the End,” an upcoming documentary about the heavy metal pioneers’ final concert in Birmingham, U.K.—the city where the Ozzy Osbourne-fronted band first formed back in 1968.
Filmed in February at Birmingham’s sold-out Genting Arena, the pyrotechnics-heavy performance in the clip (above) features bandmates Ozzy, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Tommy Clufetos playing one of Black Sabbath’s best known hits in front of 16,000 screaming fans.
“The End of the End,” directed by Dick Carruthers (the rock doc veteran behind Led Zeppelin’s well-received 2003 double-DVD set), features everything from concert and studio footage to behind-the-scenes chatter with the band. It’s set to screen at 1,500 theaters on Sept. 28 for a one-night-only event.
“To bring it all back home after all these years was pretty special,” Black Sabbath said in a June statement. “It was so hard to say goodbye to the fans, who’ve been incredibly loyal to us through the years. We never dreamed in the early days that we’d be here 49 years later doing our last show on our home turf.”
Though the boys from Birmingham may have parted ways, Ozzy has continued to tour as a solo artist. The singer and former Stern Show guest brought down the house (and the Sun) last month while performing “Bark at the Moon” in Illinois during a total solar eclipse.
“The End of the End” screens on Sept. 28. Check out the new teaser for the doc (above) and the full trailer (below).
