Lock up your daughters and stock up on the holy water – Black Sabbath are hitting the road for a full UK tour.
The black metal forefathers are gearing up to release 13, their first Ozzy Osbourne-assisted record since 1978. Following a clutch of 2012 reunion shows, the band have announced a short UK tour.
The stint will kick off on December 10 at London’s O2 Arena, and will include dates in Belfast, Sheffield, Glasgow and Manchester. The band will round off the stint with a huge show in their native Birmingham.
