A trailer for Birmingham’s Black Sabbath 50 Years exhibition has been released, which you can check out below.
The event has been brought together by Home Of Metal in conjunction with Birmingham’s Museums Trust and has been organised in celebration of the band’s 50th anniversary.
The exhibition will run from 26 June until 29 September in Sabbath’s home town at the city’s Museum & Art Gallery and will look back at their history, celebrate their contribution to British music, and explore the history between the band and their fans.
Ozzy Osbourne says: “I don’t get the chance to go and see Birmingham very often, but I’ve never tried to hide my accent and I’ve never denied that I’m from Birmingham. I’m absolutely so proud with what I’ve done with my life – it’s unbelievable. Just hold on to your dreams, because you know what? Every once in a while they come true.”
Bassist Geezer Butler adds: “I’ve always maintained that Sabbath fans are the most loyal and honest and most independently minded of all. I thank each and every one of them for their incredible support over the years.”
According to the Home Of Metal, Black Sabbath 50 Years is an immersive exhibition which will “feature historical photos, ephemera, and memorabilia sourced directly from all of the original Black Sabbath members. Including personal stories that will demonstrate the extraordinary scale and diversity of Black Sabbath’s international fan-base together with a vast photography collection of over 3,000 portraits of fans from all corners of the globe.”
Tickets for the 50 Years exhibition will go on sale from 11am today from the Home Of Metal official website.
In addition to the Sabbath exhibition, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, The New Art Gallery Walsall, MAC (Midlands Art Centre) Eastside Projects, and Centrala will also run events from May until September celebrating the history, art and culture of heavy metal.
