Black Sabbath Plans London Farewell Show

While U.S. fans will get to say goodbye to the original Black Sabbath at this summer's Ozzfest, fans in London will actually get to witness the band's swansong.

After Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward finish their run on Ozzfest on July 24, the legendary foursome will head to London to stage two last shows on August 14 and 15. Coal Chamber will be on hand to open those shows.

As we reported earlier this week, Ozzy will take a well-deserved month-long rest after the Sabbath farewell shows, and will then head to the studio to work on his next solo record (see "Ozzy Eyes Post-Ozzfest Solo Album").

Fans hoping for something to cling to besides Sabbath memories will be pleased to note that a live home video of the band's recent Stateside reunion trek will hit stores in June. The one-hour and 45-minute long "Last Supper" catches the band on the road in January and February of this year, and also features behind

the scenes footage and interview clips.
