Throwback Concert: Black Sabbath at Mohegan Sun Arena 2016

Throwback Concert: Black Sabbath at Mohegan Sun Arena 2016

By Drew Carrano

Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi said last week in an interview that he’d like to play more shows with the iconic heavy metal band. Black Sabbath hasn’t performed together since February 2017….and as we all know, when a band goes on a ‘farewell’ tour, that doesn’t necessarily mean its really ‘the end.’ Looking at you, Motley Crue.

Today we look back at Black Sabbath’s farewell tour and their last show in Connecticut.


Today’s Throwback Concert:

Black Sabbath

The End Tour

Special Guests: Rival Sons

Saturday August 27, 2016

Mohegan Sun Arena – Uncasville


About The Tour:

There were rumors going around in the summer of 2015 that Black Sabbath was going to give us one last tour. That official announcement came in the fall that Black Sabbath would go on its farewell tour, but this time without original drummer Bill Ward. Founding members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler embarked on a world tour that kicked off in Omaha, Nebraska on January 20, 2016.

“The End Tour” would last a full year and would play over 80 shows across the globe. The tour would wrap up in Black Sabbath’s home city of Birmingham, England.

Black Sabbath’s final New England performance was at Mohegan Sun on August 27, 2016. The capacity crowd at Mohegan Sun Arena rocked out to a set that featured Black Sabbath classics. From the eerie opening song “Black Sabbath” to the air raid sirens of “War Pigs” to the encore “Paranoid,” there’s no doubt that Black Sabbath went out with a bang here in Connecticut.
