Black Sabbath have added an extra Birmingham date to their UK tour.

The band, who originally formed in the Midlands and are due to tour in December in promotion of their new album '13' will now perform a second date at Birmingham's NIA on December 22. A gig on December 20 was previously announced and has already sold out.

The dates will support the band's brand new album '13', which will be released on June 10. '13' is the first album frontman Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler have recorded together since 1978's 'Never Say Die!'. The Birmingham rock legends made the album primarily in Los Angeles with renowned producer Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Metallica, System Of A Down) and it features Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk, who replaces original sticksman Bill Ward on drums.

Black Sabbath will play:

London O2 Arena (December 10)
Belfast Odyssey Arena (12)
Sheffield Arena (14)
Glasgow Hydro (16)
Manchester Arena (18)
Birmingham LG Arena (20/22)


Meanwhile, Ozzy Osbourne recently revealed that he had relapsed and begun drinking and taking drugs again for the past 18 months. The singer apologised to his fans and stated that he was now sober again.
