Black Sabbath farewell concert film to debut on Showtime

Black Sabbath’s farewell concert film, “The End Of The End”, will see its world television debut on US cable and satellite television network Showtime on Saturday, October 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Directed by Dick Carruthers (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Oasis), the project presents the last concert under the Sabbath brand by three-quarters of the original lineup – Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler – in their hometown of Birmingham, England this past February.

The show at the city’s Genting Arena marked the 81st and final date of the groundbreaking metal band’s farewell tour, wrapping up a year-long global trek to wind down a legendary career that spanned five decades.

“To bring it all back home after all these years was pretty special,” says the group. “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 US broadcast debut follows a September 28 worldwide cinema premiere that presented a specially-edited version of the concert film ahead of its official release later this year.
