Black Sabbath have announced the first in what will be a series of North American live dates as part of their forthcoming world tour in support of their eagerly-anticipated new album "13".
Fans in Toronto, Canada, will get the chance to see them play at the Air Canada Centre on August 14, with more dates in the region to be announced in the coming days. Tickets for the event go on sale from April 13.
The world tour will run from late July to September. Previous dates to be confirmed include appearances in Australia, New Zealand and Japan, with European dates expected to be announced soon.
Meanwhile, Black Sabbath have been working with producer Rick Rubin to wrap up production on their record the first with Ozzy Osbourne as frontman in 18 years.
"13" will be released in several formats ranging from a standard CD to a super-deluxe box set with a documentary film shot by Jack Osbourne. You can see a clip of his footage with Sabbath in the studio in the player below.
Anyone who places a pre-order will enter the running for a pair of VIP tickets to the official "13" launch event in London, which includes flights, accommodation and a meet-and-greet with the band, according to Blabbermouth.
