As you may know, Black Sabbath are planning out what will be their final tour (for real this time…). This is “The End”. There has been some speculation as to who would be serving as an opening act on this tour (if anyone at all). We now have the answer to this question. A band by the name of Rival Sons will be handling the spot. Their guitarist Scott Holiday had the following to say:

“Every now and again the universe just speaks to ya…and planets align…This is definitely one of those cool situations for us. A while back we played an award show… The Osbourne family happened to be in the audience. Luckily the attending -which included the upper crust of classic rock and some of the world’s most famous- really enjoyed our little 3 song set…especially Ozzy, Sharon and the kids. Standing ovation and all.

We chatted and hung with the Osbournes after the show, which was just incredible on its own…but something much greater has transpired. We couldn’t be more honored and excited to announce we’ll be supporting the legendary Black Sabbath on their upcoming world tour(s)!! This will take us to most of those places we haven’t been yet and back through the many places we have made so many friends and fans. Here we go folks… Black Sabbath and Rival Sons coming to your town…city…country soon!”
