Black Sabbath recently announced Black Sabbath: The End of the End, a documentary chronicling the icons' final concert last February, in their hometown of Birmingham, England. Today, they've released a trailer for Dick Curruthers' film, which will be screened in theaters worldwide for one night only, September 28th. The 30-second preview offers a tantalizing glimpse of what the film holds: professionally-shot footage of Ozzy and Co.'s grand finale, dizzying crowd shots, intimate peeks behind the curtain and — of course — a deluge of purple balloons. Check it out below. A list of theaters participating in the Black Sabbath: The End of the End screening event can be found over on the film's official website. Don't see your city listed?

The End of the End isn't the only thing Black Sabbath fans have to look forward to this September. A day after the film's release, on September 29th, the band will release its new vinyl box set, The Ten Year War. The limited-edition release includes remastered editions of the band's first eight LPs (Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master Of Reality, Vol. 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabotage, Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die), two rare seven-inches, a crucifix-shaped USB stick (which can also be worn as a necklace), a hardcover book with photos and essays, reproductions of Black Sabbath's hard-to-find "Ten Year War" brochure and 10th Anniversary World Tour 1978 Program and a reprinted tour poster from Black Sabbath's 1972 concert at the Seattle Centre Arena. Pre-order the box set here.
Earlier this month, Osbourne took the stage at Wisconsin's Rock USA festival for his first concert since Black Sabbath's epic hometown curtain call. His headlining set marked the return of longtime guitarist (and Black Label Society mastermind) Zakk Wylde, after an extensive absence. (Wylde's last performance with the Ozzman was in 2009.)
