The band was formed in 1968 by Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward and have sold over 70 million records worldwide and will forever go down in history as one of the most influential bands of all time.

Six different Black Sabbath albums have been certified platinum by the RIAA, including Paranoid which was certified 4x platinum.

The band played their very last show in their hometown of Birmingham, England at the NEC Arena in February. Check out some clips below!

However, despite the tour being called “The End Tour,” there was speculation that this may not be the end for the legendary group.

Guitarist Tony Iommi told Planet Rock, “It’s just the touring for me. It’s time to stop roaming the world and be at home for a bit. When you’re touring you’ve got to go out for six, eight, 12 months or whatever, and you’ve got a schedule that you have to do. Now, if I want to do some TV for a month, I can do that.” This made people think that Black Sabbath was possibly just done touring, however with recent posts on the Black Sabbath Facebook page, it is clear that the band is officially done.

The band also shared a classic picture of them performing live decades ago. Check it out!

Frontman Ozzy Osbourne ended the final Black Sabbath show with a simple thank you to the crowd.

“Thank you, goodnight, thank you so much.”

No Black Sabbath, thank you.
