Black Sabbath launched their world tour on April 20th with two shows in Auckland, NZ. They are now in Australia for performances in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, before heading to Tokyo for the first-ever Ozzfest in Japan on May 12th.

Along the overseas tour, Black SAabbath–Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler–are previewing music from their forthcoming 13. On the new album, due out June 11th, the band that defined heavy metal picks up immediately where they left off with eight sprawling songs (five of them are over eight minutes) that possess every ounce of the maniacal vitality of the Grammy-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees’ trailblazing work in the ’70s. Songs such as End of the Beginning, Loner, Dear Father and Age of Reason reinforce 13’s testament to the enduring relevance of Black Sabbath’s long-running reign. Produced by Rick Rubin (seven-time Grammy winner, two of those as Producer of the Year), 13 will be released on Vertigo (worldwide) and Vertigo/Republic in the U.S.

    Just got home from seeing the show in Melbourne! Awesome show! Ozzy sounds as good as he ever has singing all the classic Sabbath songs! Much much better than i expected him to be! They are a must see, and for the record I wish Bill was there but Tommy on the drums was brilliant and did probably the best drum solo i have ever seen! He can really play! Don’t knock them until you’ve seen them people, it’s not just a nostalgia act!

    Would love to take my son to see the original Sabbath, but
    it’s not gonna happen because apparently none of these
    guys have it in them to do the right thing and pay their
    friend (?) and fellow original member the money he
    deserves and that I would hazard to guess that they are
    damn well getting, which is probably one of the main
    reasons for this tour anyway.
