The band played the 81st and final triumphant gig of The End tour at Birmingham's Barclaycard Arena.

The sold out performance marked the culmination of a global tour that saw the band play to over one and a half million fans. With their inception in 1968, Black Sabbath pioneered a sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, and to this day continues to influence bands the world over.

The film brings fans the up close and personal story of the final, emotionally-charged concert, as the band perform hits including Iron Man, Paranoid, War Pigs and many more. Join Sabbath in the studio, as they deliver unique and exclusive performances of some of their favourite songs not played on the tour, and catch an intimate glimpse into the band's world; the music, relationships and banter, alongside personal anecdotes.

The band said: "To bring it all back home after all these years was pretty special.

"It was so hard to say goodbye to the fans, who've been incredibly loyal to us through the years.

"We never dreamed in the early days that we'd be here 49 years later doing our last show on our home turf."

The End of The End offers you the chance to witness for yourself Black Sabbath's incredible swansong. As Ozzy says, "What a journey we've all had. It's fucking amazing". This is the final word from the greatest heavy metal band of all time.


Marc Allenby from Trafalgar Releasing said: "Trafalgar Releasing are excited to be expanding our music events with the legendary band, Black Sabbath, and their final ever historic show.

"We look forward to collaborating with Eagle Rock and Black Sabbath's management on The End of the End."

The End of the End will be screened for one night only at various cinemas across the region including: Light House Wolverhampton, Cineworld Cinema Wolverhampton, Showcase Walsall, Showcase Dudley, Light Cinema Walsall, Odeon Dudley, Odeon Broadway Plaza Birmingham, Cineworld Birmingham Broad Street, Everyman Mailbox Birmingham, The Electric Cinema Birmingham, Vue Cinema Birmingham, Empire Birmingham Great Park, Odeon Telford, Cineworld Telford and IMAX, Theatre Severn Shrewsbury and more.
