Black Sabbath have shared a clip of them performing their classic track Children Of The Grave.

It’s taken from their upcoming concert movie The End Of The End, which was shot during the last show of their farewell tour earlier this year in their home city of Birmingham. It will be screened at 1500 cinemas around the world for one night only on September 28th.

Watch it below.

Sabbath recently said, “To bring it all back home after all these years was pretty special. It was so hard to say goodbye to the fans who have 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 End Of The End features live scenes from the concert along with backstage footage and studio performances of tracks they didn’t play on the night.

  1. In the clip of this song, which is one of the last songs of the set from the last show of the tour, Tommy is still hitting the drums hard!! I’m convinced there is no way Bill Ward would have physically been able to sustain a tour as the sole drummer for the band.

    1. You may be right, Rattlehead. Bill was always one of the hardest hitting drummers in the business, and he very well may have not been able to complete a full tour. He said he could have done it, but who knows? My biggest gripe is that he wasn’t able to perform at these last shows in Birmingham. Heck, even if it was just to play on a few songs, it would have been better than just completely leaving him out of the whole thing! They just played the shows like Bill didn’t exist! Now, maybe the rest of the band offered something like this to Bill, and he turned it down. Again, who knows? I just wish that these guys could have got together, and worked something out so that the four original guys who INVENTED heavy metal could have played together for the last show. So disappointing!

    2. being a lifelong fitness enthusiast and drummer, as you get older the last thing to go is your strength , as long as your active and looking after your diet you can be fine as an older wiser drummer , we will never know if bill could have done it , he didn’t get the chance , but you can still hit the drums pretty hard with out swinging your arms and being theatrical , that is what youth gives you , but drumming is all in the wrist , look at how great Neil Peart still played right up until he retired from live touring – I don’t think age or health was the issue- there was something else going on ,had to be
