Since I've got to

this building today,

I've been happy,

I've been cheerful,

my emotions are

flying all over the place.

It's weird.

Let's see what happens.

It's going to be

pretty strange, I think.

I don't know

how I feel really.

It's going to be very sad,

and it's going to be

joyful as well

in the same time.

I don't really know

what to expect.

Got butterflies

in me stomach.

Feel like I'm

being sentenced

to death or something.

Like something terrible

is about to happen.

It'll be a

feeling of knowing

we're not going

to be playing

these songs again.

It's our last show ever.

We have to

leave the audience

with the best show

that they're ever

going to see

from Sabbath.

This is definitely it.

One of the proudest thing

I have in my heart

is the fact that

Black Sabbath wasn't

a band that was created

by some big mogul guy.

It was four of us,

let's have a go,

we have a dream,

and it came true beyond

our wildest expectations.

We're Black Sabbath.

It just seemed

right to start off

with Black Sabbath.


It immediately

puts you there, I mean...

The fans, you know,

they love that song, so...

What is this

That stands before me?

Figure in black

Which points at me

Turn around quick

And start to run

Find out I'm the chosen one

Oh, no

Big black shape

With eyes of fire

Telling people

Their desire

Satan's sitting there

he's smiling

Watches those flames

Get higher and higher

Oh, no, no

please God help me

What happened when you

first played Black Sabbath?

It was at

The Pokey Hole

in Lichfield.

This place called

The Pokey Hole Club.

I'd just written

Black Sabbath that

morning at rehearsal.

Tony comes up

with that all-time

classic wonderful riff...

And he's like, "Oh, yeah."

You know instinctively

when you're onto a good one.

We did the usual

12-bar blues set.

We sort of just put

that new song in

that we'd just done.

When we put it in,

the whole place

went mental.

Is it the end, my friend?

Come on!

Satan's coming

'round the bend

People running

'cause they're scared

The people better go

and beware

No, no, please, no

Let me see those hands!

Come on!

Thank you!

Let me see it!

Let me see

those hands, come on!

God bless you all.

How you doing?

Well, this is

the final show

for Black Sabbath.

We hope

you've enjoyed us

over the years.

I guess you have

or you wouldn't have

come out tonight.

I gotta tell you

something, man,

what a journey

we've all had

up here, man.

It's f***ing amazing!

We started in 1968,

and it's now 2017.

I don't f***ing believe

that sh*t, man.

Black Sabbath,

from day one, has

always been my life,

and I've, you know

lived every aspect of it.

I kind of remember

playing The Crown pub,

and I'm thinking,

"Well, this is good

for a couple of years.

"Drink a few beers,

and have a jam."

And that was the beginning of

the most incredible adventure

I could ever think of.

It's kind of being

put in a barrel,

and rolled down

the biggest mountain ever,

and you come out,

and you're like,

49 years later,

it's mind-blowing.

We didn't think it'd last

more than three

or four years back then,

never mind

nearly 50 years.

You know, even our own

families thought that

we were just wasting our time.

We've always done that,

I remember, since day one,

we were up

against a big challenge

and so on to push

our music through.


-And it's been that way

all the way along

the line, you know.

It took us seven auditions

to get a record deal.

One of the guys

told us to go away,

learn to play

our instruments,
