Black Sabbath are to release 'The End', the celebration of their final concert at Birmingham's Genting Arena on 4th February, 2017. This unforgettable farewell show from Heavy Metal's founding fathers will be released by Eagle Vision on 17th November 2017.

With a hit packed set list including 'Iron Man', 'Paranoid', 'War Pigs' and many more, the high production values, visual effects and pyrotechnics wowed fans, as the band delivered the most emotionally charged show of their lives.

"Because it was Birmingham, it was a special night for us," said Tony Iommi. "It was great to look out and know that all these people have come to see us. What a great feeling. There's nothing like it."

All visual formats feature special bonus material of the band playing a selection of their favourite songs not played on tour. These intimate live sessions at Angelic Studios were recorded in the days after their final live performance, and mark the band's final studio recordings. Geezer Butler said:

"It will never be 'The End' for me. I'll always be a part of Sabbath, and Sabbath will always be a part of me."

Following last month's world premiere of a companion documentary film in over 1,700 cinemas around the world, Eagle Vision will release the full live show of The End on 17th November 2017 on DVD, Blu-ray, DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD, double CD, triple 180gm vinyl and a limited deluxe collector's edition. A limited number of exclusive merchandise bundles are also available at PledgeMusic.

Black Sabbath's superb, new limited edition vinyl box set, 'The Ten Year War', was released earlier this month via BMG and was featured on Steve Göldby Talks Metal on MetalTalk Radio On TotalRock. You can listen to the full show in the players below.

This box set really is a thing of beauty and brings together Sabbath's eight Ozzy fronted albums and also includes many other rarities, all housed within exclusive artwork, quality packaging and world-class presentation.

On the show, you get the complete lowdown on the box set, interspersed with comment by Tony Iommi himself, taken from MetalTalk's very recent interview with the Godfather of Heavy Metal, which was conducted by Mark Taylor.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
