I recently had the chance to cover Black Sabbath’s farewell tour when it rolled through the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre Chicago. Pretty happy with my lede. Fun show.

From the story…
Farewell tours are a dime a dozen in the music industry.
Reunions? A quarter.
So fans are justified in being at least a little skeptical when an act like Black Sabbath announces a tour called “The End,” featuring three-quarters of the original lineup. Doubly so when fans likely thought the first leg of the tour earlier this year would have been the
band’s last appearance in the Chicago area.
