Rival Sons have landed the coveted opening slot on Black Sabbath‘s ‘The End‘ farewell tour. The group will be out supporting the band across multiple legs of the tour and their guitarist Scott Holiday said of landing the gigs:
“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!”
