Black Sabbath Announce 2014 North American Tour Dates
If you missed Black Sabbath on their previous leg of their 2013 tour, I have good news and bad news. First, the good-the shows will continue into 2014, with the band announcing more North American dates beginning in March. Next, the bad-there aren’t any new date in the Lone Star state.
The trek kicks off March 31 in Brooklyn, N.Y., has several dates in Canada, then wraps up in Los Angeles on April 26. Presale tickets will be available Nov. 20, with details available here. The public on-sale date is Nov. 22.
The release of their ‘Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses’ DVD is coming up on Nov. 26. It was filmed earlier this year in Melbourne, Australia and includes songs from ’13′ and classics from the past.
Several configurations of ‘Live…Gathered in Their Masses’ can be pre-ordered. There’s a standalone DVD, standalone Blu-ray, a Blu-ray/CD combo pack with a CD featuring live audio from the show, DVD/CD combo pack with a CD featuring live audio from the show, or the Deluxe Box with a Blu-ray disc of the concert with bonus visual extras, two DVD discs, a CD, a poster, signed set list, photo booklet, guitar picks and an official show “ticket.”
During their current break from the road, bassist Geezer Butler was honored at last weekend’s Bass Player Live! Concert in Los Angeles. It was a memorable night as an all-star band played several Sabbath songs.
The band heads to Finland to kick off their last dates of 2013. They play Helsinki on Nov. 20 and wrap up the European tour Dec. 10 in London.
