BLACK SABBATH bassist Geezer Butler told in a recent interview that the band was planning to ditch some of the newer songs to bring back some classics for "The End" tour. "We're going back to do almost all of the 'Paranoid' album, apart from 'Planet Caravan'," he said, explaining that "We could do it, but it wouldn't work live. It would sound weird during a SABBATH set. It works on an album, but it isn't great live. There's a couple of other songs that we haven't done for a long time."

Asked which songs they were referring to, singer Ozzy Osbourne said: "'After Forever' and a few others. People have written in and asked us for other songs. The one thing about having a lot of records is not everybody likes the same songs. If we did what everybody suggested we do in the set, we'd be there for fucking three weeks!"

The first U.S. leg of "The End" tour will end on February 27 in New York City. Dates in Australia and New Zealand have been confirmed for April, with European festival shows taking place during the summer.

Regarding "The End" being SABBATH's final tour, guitarist Tony Iommi said: "It's gonna hard at the end to sort of suddenly say, 'That's it,' but it has to come one day. But we're gonna enjoy it until then."

BLACK SABBATH recently revealed that it is selling a new limited-edition CD titled "The End" at the shows on its farewell tour. The disc features four previously unheard studio tracks left off the band's 2013 reunion album, "13", as well as live versions of four songs from the world tour the band did in support of that disc.

The four studio cuts are "Season Of The Dead", "Cry All Night", "Take Me Home" and "Isolated Man". They feature drums by Brad Wilk.

The live tracks, with drumming from Tommy Clufetos, are "God Is Dead?", "Under The Sun", "End Of The Beginning" and "Age Of Reason". The live cuts were recorded in Sydney, Australia, Auckland, New Zealand and Hamilton, Ontario.

Wilk and Clufetos had to get involved after founding SABBATH drummer Bill Ward withdrew from the reunion after initially agreeing to participate in it.

"13", the first SABBATH full-length studio album in 35 years to feature original members Butler, Iommi and Osbourne, also became SABBATH's first No. 1 album in the U.S. when it was released in June 2013. The band abandoned plans for a follow-up after deciding that the current trek would be its last.
