Black Sabbath made a triumphant comeback in 2013 with the GRAMMY Award-winning album "13," and as part of that success, the group has extended its world tour with a second North American leg for the spring of 2014. On April 26, original members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler will bring more than four decades-worth of hits to Los Angeles' iconic Hollywood Bowl. The ongoing tour marks the first time these metal pioneers have performed together in several years.
Hollywood Bowl Seating Information
There will be a multitude of seating options at the Hollywood Bowl for the Black Sabbath concert, beginning with Pool Circle seats situated immediately in front of the stage in Sections A-E. These seats are surrounded by several sections of boxes. Ramp and side boxes stand on either side of the Pool Circle, while the Garden and Terrace Level boxes are located behind it.
Directly following the Terrace Level are centered Sections G1, H, and J1, which are equipped with "Super Seats," or stadium-style seats. All other options are classified as the Promenade Level, which features Sections D-X2. All Promenade seating options consist of wooden benches.
