Black Sabbath have revealed that they’ll be releasing a documentary of The End tour.
The band had made their way through 81 shows across Europe, North and South America, Australia and New Zealand at the start of 2017. Their final tour finished with a sold out homecoming gig in Birmingham’s Genting Arena.
Guitarist Tony Iommi told NBC news, “We’ll actually be doing a documentary. My job at the moment is to have a listen to what we’ve done,” and says he is in “the process of mixing the sound from the final Sabbath shows in Birmingham for a possible live album.
Iommi also talked about the song he had recently written for his local cathedral (below). The guitarist explains that he likes doing what people don’t expect of him and it seemed like “a nice thing to do”.
Last week, bassist Geezer Butler told Music Radar that there may be a possibility of a new album from the band. He said, “It would take something like two or three years to do it properly, and we thought we might not all be here by that time, so it would be better to do the final tour first and then maybe we’ll do a blues record later.”
Maybe it’s not the end for Sabbath after all.
