OZZY, TONY AND GEEZER ARE HEADING TO DONINGTON!
Yep, it’s true! Black Sabbath will return to Donington to headline the Saturday night of DOWNLOAD 2016. Their appearance at Download Festival will form part of their worldwide ‘The End’ tour, as they sign off their 50-year career as one of the greatest metal bands in the history of time.
Speaking of the gig, your man Ozzy Osbourne has said: “Download is my absolute favourite summer festival. It’s always like coming home. See you all there!”
Meanwhile, Download Festival booker Andy Copping has said: “What can I say about Black Sabbath? They are probably the most influential band in rock music and have inspired many, many artists to start a band. The fact they are still as popular after all these years shows how much they are respected. The fact that this is Black Sabbath’s final tour makes it even more exciting.”
Black Sabbath will join heavy metal legends Iron Maiden at DOWNLOAD 2016, who were announced last night as the Sunday headliner.
DOWNLOAD 2016 takes place at Donington Park across the weekend of June 10 – 12, 2016. Weekend, day and RIP tickets go on general sale this Friday at 9am.
