Iconic Black Sabbath return to roots with exhibition in hometown of Birmingham, UK
POSTED 08 Jan 2019 . BY Luke Cloherty
An exhibition featuring historical photos and memorabilia of heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath is to go on display in the band’s hometown of Birmingham, England.

Called Black Sabbath – 50 Years, the exhibition will run from June to September 2019 at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and is presented by Home of Metal – a city-wide project celebrating music that was born in Birmingham.

Materials sourced directly from band members – including Ozzy Osbourne, Tommy Iommi and Geezer Butler – will appear alongside portraits and stories from the Home of Metal fan archive at the exhibition.

"Black Sabbath are Birmingham legends and we're thrilled to be hosting this exhibition with the Home of Metal team to celebrate the iconic band and their dedicated fans from around the world," said a spokesperson for the Birmingham Museums Trust.

"We'll keep fans updated as to when tickets go on sale and look forward to welcoming them to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery this summer to share 50 years of metal music memories, tracing Black Sabbath’s journey from their beginnings in Birmingham to global success."

Lisa Meyer, co-founder and artistic director at Home of Metal, added: "This programme, celebrating Black Sabbath and their global fan base is part of a highly ambitious cultural season across the city and region.

"This will put Birmingham on the cultural and music heritage map and is a strong statement about local distinction and placemaking."

The project has received support from Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund, Laney Amplification and Colmore Business District and is curated and produced by Capsule.

“It’s an honour to be a part of the Home of Metal. I am just a guy from Birmingham who’s been blessed to have had such dedicated fans throughout my career," said Ozzy Osbourne. "As I’ve always said, I am nothing without them."
