One of the biggest events in the heavy metal genre is here. Pioneers – BLACK SABBATH will perform at Arena Riga on 5th July, with their only farewell tour THE END concert in Baltics.

You heard it right – it’s the Beginning of THE END. It started nearly five decades ago with a crack of thunder, a distant bell ringing and then that monstrous riff that shook the earth. The heaviest rock sound ever heard.  In that moment Heavy Metal was born, created by a young band from Birmingham, England barely out of their teens. Now it ENDS, the final tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time, BLACK SABBATH. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible BLACK SABBATH story.

In celebration of Black Sabbath’s final outing together, lets recall some of the best quotes delivered by frontman Ozzy Osbourne:

“Of all the things I’ve lost I miss my mind the most.”

“I got rabies shots for biting the head off a bat but that’s OK – the bat had to get Ozzy shots.”

“I couldn’t be a royal. It’s like living in a supersonic goldfish bowl.”

“Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus.”

“Viagra’s a great sleeping drug. I take Viagra, and Sharon goes right to sleep.”

“Sometimes I think my whole career and life has only been about a bloody bat!”

“To be a liar, you’ve got to have a great memory, and I don’t have a memory.”

“I knew it was time to get off of reality TV when someone asked me if I sang as well as acted.”

“I have a saying. ‘Never judge a book by its cover’. I say that because I don’t even know who Ozzy is. I wake up a new person every day.”

“I’ll only retire in the day I should be dead and they have me buried, and some idiot spell over my casket some stupid gospel stuff.”

Last chance to see the heart & soul of heavy metal – performing in the middle of Baltics. Don’t wait, don’t think – get your ticket here.
