They wowed thousands with their comeback performance at Donington Park last year as part of the 2012 Download Festival (read our review of that amazing performance here), and now, with the release of new album “13” on the horizon, the mighty Black Sabbath have announced a set of shows for the end of 2013!

Needless to say, the return of one of the creators of heavy metal to the UK live scene has got us rather excited. If that doesn’t brighten your Monday morning we don’t know what will!
