BLACK SABBATH added another Grammy® Award to their collection last night (Sunday, January 26) with a win in the "Best Metal Performance" category for "God Is Dead?" The song was the first release from the icon band's 2013 critically acclaimed 13 album (Vertigo/Republic), which entered the charts at #1 in 13 countries. The band's previous Grammy win was in 2000 for "Best Metal Performance" for "Iron Man" from their Reunion live album.
"We've had an unbelievable year. A #1 album in 13 countries, our first-ever #1 ever in America, a sold out world tour and now another Grammy award to top it off. We are shocked and thrilled," BLACK SABBATH said.
Next up, BLACK SABBATH will return to the road with performances in North America and Europe. The North American dates launch March 31 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY and will hit ten cities in Canada, including stops in Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton, before wrapping April 26 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA. The overseas shows kick off May 29 in Abu Dhabi at Du Arena, the band will then perform two gigs in Russia before going on to Europe.. BLACK SABBATH kicked off their triumphant 2013-2014 world tour in April 2013 with shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. North American dates followed, along with performances in South America and Mexico for a headlining stadium tour (where they played to more than 300,000 fans).
