Following wildly successful shows in North and South America, Australia, Asia and now Europe (which kicked off November 20 in Helsinki, Finland), Black Sabbath have announced additional shows. On the final leg of their 2013-2014 world tour, Black Sabbath also come to Austria to headline the 10th year of Nova Rock festival and present their first studio album in 35 years, 13, which entered the charts at #1 in 13 countries (including their first #1 in the U.S.)


For more than three decades, rock fans have hoped for the return of Black Sabbath, but few could have predicted the forceful return-to-form of 13, which was produced by seven-time Grammy-Award winning producer Rick Rubin. With epic songs like God Is Dead?, End of the Beginning and Loner, 13 is a testament to the enduring relevance of Black Sabbath’s long-running reign. The original Black Sabbath has sold over 70 million albums worldwide.

Black Sabbath – Ozzy Osbourne (vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar) and Geezer Butler (bass) – launched their 2013 world tour on April 20. The fall European tour launch coincides with the release of Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses DVD, Blu-Ray, combo pack and deluxe box. Filmed April 29 and May 1, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia, Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses features the first-ever live performances of songs from the band’s 2013 critically acclaimed 13 album, along with Black Sabbath classics.
