Black Sabbath fans get your passports and tickets in hand because you have less than a month to make preparations if you want to see the band get honored in their hometown.
On Saturday, February 9th, the city of Birmingham will dedicate a special bench that celebrates the metal pioneers, permanently installed on the soon to be newly renamed Black Sabbath Bridge over Broad Street.
The steel and concrete bench will feature all four band members’ faces and names plus the words, “Made in Birmingham 1968”. The ceremony is set to take place at St Luke’s Church on Gas Street starting at 11am, with Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi and Bill Ward expected to be in attendance.
Ozzy Osbourne is set to perform that night with Judas Priest, but no word on if he will be at the unveiling.
