Black Sabbath To Play Download Festival

in Live,News

The legendary Black Sabbath – Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler – will be returning to headline Download Festival 2016 on Saturday 11 June.

Nearly five decades on from their beginnings in Birmingham, the band – who have been widely proclaimed as ‘The Greatest Metal Band of All Time’ – will be coming back to the spiritual home of rock at Donington Park as part of their FINAL ever tour entitled “The End”, which will see their biggest and most mesmerising production to date.

Ozzy Osbourne commented:

‘Download is my absolute favourite summer festival. It’s always like coming home. See you all there!’

With Iron Maiden already announced to headline Sunday 12 June, Download Festival still has details of one more headliner to announce.
