Showtime Lines Up Black Sabbath Farewell Concert Film

Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler star in ‘The End of the End’ 9/29/2017 4:50 PM Eastern
The End Tour concluded Black Sabbath's storied 40-year (and then some) career.

Showtime will air the film Black Sabbath: The End of the End, about the original lineup’s final concert, on Saturday, Oct. 28.

Ozzy Osbourne fronted heavy metal band Black Sabbath, which was also composed of Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler. The farewell concert took place Feb. 4 in Birmingham, England, the band’s hometown.

Beginning with the song “Black Sabbath,” the title track from their 1970 debut album, Black Sabbath also performs “Iron Man,” “War Pigs,” “Paranoid” and other tracks. The film also features behind-the-scenes concert footage and interviews with band members.

Black Sabbath was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.

Directed by Dick Carruthers and executive produced by Geoff Kempin and Terry Shand for Eagle Rock Entertainment, Black Sabbath: The End of the End is Showtime’s latest music film, following the Whitney Houston-focused Whitney. “Can I Be Me”, Prince: Sign o’ the Times, George Michael: Freedom, which premieres Oct. 21, and Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars, which airs next year.
