Black Sabbath have confirmed the first set of dates for their reunion world tour, which you can see below.
The run of performances starting in May will take place at venues and festivals across Europe, but the band will be announcing more dates across other continents once they have been confirmed.
As revealed last week, the renown metal act have officially reunited, though there was very little surprise at the news after guitarist Tony Iommi let the cat out of the bag early and made it one of the worst kept secrets in rock history.
The real surprise was that they will team up with studio legend Rick Rubin for a brand new Sabbath record. Speaking at an official press conference, bassist Geezer Butlers said the new songs are "back to the old Sabbath style and sound. The stuff that Tony [Iommi] has been playing is absolutely brilliant."
