Dark overlords Black Sabbath will play their last American concert in San Antonio November 12 before the impending doom of (alleged) permanent retirement. 

Remember when Osbourne collectively pissed off every red-blooded Texan when he lifted his leg on the Alamo Cenotaph in '82? Now that the obligatory Alamo reminder is out of the way, lets move on.

After countless lineup changes throughout the decades, including Rainbow's Ronnie James Dio (RIP) and Deep Purple's Ian Gillan - who played a badass Jesus on rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar - original Black Sabbath bad boy Ozzy Osbourne will finish what he started, along with founding guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler.

Black Sabbath's appropriately named The End farewell tour will, well, end at the AT&T Center (1 AT&T Center Pkwy) November 12. Even though BS will perform the stuff that nightmares are made of, there probably wont be occult mischief, demon summoning, or bat chewing anywhere to be found. But it won't be Sabbath without thousands of devil horns high in the air.  

Tickets go on sale June 17 at 10am and can be purchased here
