Black Sabbath Announce First 2013 U.S. Tour Dates
Their truncated 2012 tour didn't offer much for American fans, but with a new album around the corner and a freshly sober frontman, the guys in Black Sabbath have raised the curtain on a handful of 2013 dates that will bring the band to select American cities.
The new shows, which supplement the August 14 concert in Toronto announced last month, are set to kick off in August and will -- as the band's P.R. machine promised at the time -- keep the band on the road "through September." (Only the third of September, but hey -- when you've been waiting for a reunion this long, it's best not to get greedy.)
Tickets for the shows are set to go on sale Saturday (April 20), but fans can stake their claim even earlier by visiting a special Facebook page to RSVP on Thursday, April 18 -- which is the same day the band's new single, 'God Is Dead?,' is scheduled to make its radio debut. Look for it on your favorite rock station starting at 3 P.M. Eastern, and check out the newly expanded list of tour dates below.
