Black Sabbath at PNC Bank Arts Center in August (more by Greg Cristman)
Black Sabbath

Black Sabbath, who are currently reunited with Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler all in tow (no Bill Ward though), have a new album out, and went on a tour over the summer which brought them to Connecticut, New Jersey, and other places. It felt a little strange that they omitted NYC, but they've now announced another tour for 2014 which kicks off at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on March 31! Tickets for the Barclays Center show go on sale Friday, November 22 at 10 AM. No openers announced yet, but Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats are opening their November/December European tour. All dates are listed below.

Sabbath are also documenting their 2013 tour with a new live DVD/CD Black Sabbath: Live...Gathered in Their Masses, which will be out on November 26 via Vertigo/Republic. Check out the tracklist below and more info, including different combo pack options, here. Ozzy and Geezer discussed the album at the Grammy Museum last week (11/6), you can watch a video of that conversation here.

In related news, Tony Iommi is receiving a degree honor from Coventry University. Reports BBC:

The founder member of the Birmingham heavy metal band will be awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Arts by Coventry University on 19 November.

Iommi will be heading straight from the graduation ceremony at Coventry Cathedral to join Black Sabbath in Helsinki for the start of their latest European tour.

He has sold more than 80 million records worldwide during his career.

Iommi said was "a great honour" to receive the doctorate.

He added: "I'd like to thank everyone at Coventry University for my nomination and look forward to meeting them at the ceremony."

And in more related news, don't give Bill Ward a copy of Sabbath's new album. "I haven't heard anything off that album at all," Bill told Rock Cellar Magazine. "And to be quite honest, I don't care to either. It's too painful. If I want to rip my guts out, I'll put it on."

All dates are listed, along with the DVD/CD tracklist and a recent live video, below...

They NEED to bring Uncle Acid and the deadbeats to the states. That last round with Andrew WK was a joke.

Maryland Deathfest is claiming Uncle Acid's slot as their only US appearance this year. Which is very, very unfortunate.

The new Black Sabbath album is awful.

Props to them for at least putting out an album of new music and not being an oldies jukebox, but hang it up fellas.

No Clevo or Detroit wtf

NYC and LA too gay for this band

Posted by Not allowed into Canada | November 14, 2013 11:51 PM

^ Chill.

You need to take a geography lesson bro.

That route is clearly a cross-Canada tour bookended by the biggest US markets for the band (NY and LA.) 'Surprised there's Vancouver date posted although there could be one since 4/23, 24, and 25 are open. My guess is they will play Vancouver 4/24 to make it a 13-show tour in support of "13". It's smart because they kick it off in NY and end it in LA and that has a nice ring to it.

My guess is this is the first leg of the tour with a cross-country U.S. tour which I'm sure will include Detroit and Cleveland to follow.

I blame Obama not Bill Ward

Can someone who saw them this past year honestly say whether they're worth seeing now or not?

Posted by Anonymous | November 15, 2013 10:04 AM

Andrew WK's "set" was a joke (he DJ'd- how lame), but Ozzy and co were totally fun live. if you can score cheap tickets, go. It was pretty good. Ozzy was pitchy in the beginning, but by the 2nd or 3rd song, he was fine. and their new drummer is an animal. Totally worth seeing.

I saw them in Las Vegas in September... show was amazing.

I went to the NJ show last time, and complained the whole time about how they should have played NY, now they are playing NY, and I can't fucking wait. I'm only 24, but it's nice to say I've seen Sabbath 3 times.

Posted by Eden | March 2, 2014 3:43 AM
