VIDEO: Black Sabbath – Watch complete Birmingham reunion concert

On May 19, a mostly-reunited Black Sabbath rocked their hometown of Birmingham.

The event marked the first time the band had played the city in more than a dozen years, and acted as a warmup show to the group’s upcoming headline appearance at Download next month.

Original Sabbath members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler were joined by Ozzy’s drummer Tommy Clufetos for the show as Bill Ward released a statement declining to participate in the reunion based on a current contract offer.

The intimate hometown show is the first of three scheduled for Sabbath this year: next up is a headline gig at Download (June 10) and Lollapalooza in Chicago (August 3).

Multi-cam video of the complete Birmingham concert has surfaced…check it out!
