Black Sabbath kick off North American tour in New York

Black Sabbath kicked of their spring North American tour in support of their latest album, “13”, on Monday at the Barclays Center in New York, and video from the show is available.

The month-long trek includes a 3-week Canadian tour that begins Thursday in Halifax, Nova Scotia and wraps April 22 in Edmonton, Alberta; it is followed by a Los Angeles stop at the Hollywood Bowl on April 26.

In sync with the spring tour, the band will release “The Complete Studio Albums (1970-1978)”, an 8-disc box set featuring their 1970s catalogue, on April 15.

The package was released on iTunes in January, and a variation of the set (which also included DVDs) was first issued in 2004.

The box set contains all of the studio albums Black Sabbath recorded for Warner Bros. Records during the 1970s, including its iconic, eponymous debut (1970), the multi-platinum landmark "Paranoid" (1970), the platinum albums "Master Of Reality" (1971), "Vol. 4" (1972), and "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" (1973), as well as the gold albums "Sabotage" (1975), "Technical Ecstasy" (1976), and "Never Say Die!" (1978).
