VIDEO: Black Sabbath preview 1971 classic from farewell concert film

Black Sabbath are streaming partial footage of their 1971 classic, “Children Of The Grave”, as a preview to the September 28 worldwide cinema debut of their farewell concert film, “The End Of The End.”

The tune was the second single from the UK band’s third album, “Master Of Reality”, which peaked at No. 8 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 2 million copies in the States.

Directed by Dick Carruthers, “The End Of The End” presents the farewell concert by Black Sabbath in their hometown of Birmingham, England this past February.

“To bring it all back home after all these years was pretty special,” says the band. “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.”

The global cinema event will present a specially-edited version of the concert film ahead of its official release later this year.

On September 29 – the day after the screening – Black Sabbath will release a limited edition vinyl box set called “The Ten Year War.”

The individually-numbered packages will deliver 180-gram splatter-colored remastered editions of eight albums from the band’s classic 1970s catalog – from their groundbreaking self-titled 1970 debut to 1978’s “Never Say Die!” – alongside a series of rarities and goodies for fans.
