Black Sabbath Final Show To Screen In Cinemas

There are more and more big musical events coming to theaters than ever before, including new dates for shows by Black Sabbath and the Grateful Dead.

Trafalgar Releasing is bringing Black Sabbath’s February 4, 2017 show in Birmingham, England, the final show of their final tour, to over 1,500 theaters worldwide on September 28. Along with the concert, fans will see behind-the-scenes footage from before the show and studio footage of songs that were not played on the final night.

Trafalgar’s Marc Allenby said “Trafalgar Releasing are excited to be expanding our music events with the legendary band, Black Sabbath, and their final ever historic show. We look forward to collaborating with Eagle Rock and Black Sabbath’s management on The End of the End.”

To find theaters that will show the film near you, go to Trafalgar’s website.

Earlier in the summer, On August 1, Fathom Events and Rhino Entertainment will salute Jerry Garcia on what would have been his 75th birthday, with their 7th annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies.

This year will feature a July 12, 1989 show from RFK Stadium in Washington, DC, which has previously never been released on film.

The Meet-Up provides an annual occasion for Dead Heads to reconnect with fellow fans, as well as a chance for new devotees to experience the excitement of what it would have been like to see one of the Dead’s legendary shows live. This year’s concert features a rare first set that contains at least one song sung by each of the four lead singers and a terrific show-opening rendition of the band’s biggest hit Touch Of Grey. The show’s second set begins with a very uncommon second-set opener, Sugaree, two songs with Bruce Hornsby sitting in (Sugaree and Man Smart (Woman Smarter)), plus one of the only video recorded versions of Black Muddy River.

The theaters where the film will be shown are available at Fathom’s website.

The set list:
Touch of Grey
New Minglewood Blues
Mississippi Half-Step Uptown
Tom Thumb’s Blues
Far From Me
Friend of the Devil
Promised Land
Man Smart (Woman Smarter)
Ship of Fools
Estimated Prophet
Eyes of the World
I Need a Miracle
Dear Mr. Fantasy
Black Peter
Turn On Your Love Light
Black Muddy River
