Chapter screen final gig of Black Sabbath, who played at one of the arts centre’s first concerts
Posted on: 27 Sep 2017
On 28 September, Chapter will screen Black Sabbath: The End Of The End, which chronicles the final tour from the band who forged the sound of metal. The screening will hold a particular poignancy at Chapter, as the band played at one of the earliest fundraising gigs for what would become Chapter, back in 1970.
The gig took the form of a 12 hour pop concert in Sophia Gardens, with Pink Floyd topping the bill and Black Sabbath and Quintessence in support.
Ranked by MTV as the ‘Greatest Metal Band’ of all time, and having sold over 70 million records worldwide, Black Sabbath clearly went on to be more than just the support! After nearly 50 years together, the Birmingham band took to the stage for the last time in their home city back in February 2017, bringing down the curtain on their final tour ever. They performed generation-spanning songs that have defined a genre in front of a sold-out arena and, in exclusive new interviews, the band themselves tell it how they lived it. After half a century, this is a chance to hear the final word from the greatest metal band of all time – who once played at a Chapter fundraiser!
Chapter will also be screening the Led Zeppelin documentary The Song Remains The Same at Caerphilly Castle on 18 November as part of their programme of site specific screenings.
