Home of Metal presents: Black Sabbath – 50 Years
Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery
22 June until 29 September

Tickets will be released in mid-March and can be pre-registered at www.homeofmetal.com

A blockbuster exhibition devoted to the music that was born in and around Birmingham. Music that turned up the volume, down-tuned the guitars, and introduced a whole new meaning to the word ‘heavy’.

The exhibition celebrates Black Sabbath from the perspective of their fans, to show the impact and cultural legacy of the band as pioneers of Heavy Metal, and to celebrate this unique, significant part of British music heritage.

Memorabilia, collections and personal stories 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.

Further pieces will also include iconic artefacts and treasured personal items on loan from the band members themselves, who comment:

“Fans are our lifeblood, they’ve always been there to support us.” Tony Iommi

Home of Metal is conceived and produced by Capsule, under the leadership of its founder and artistic director, Lisa Meyer.  In collaboration with Capsule, Morag Myerscough, one of the UK’s most acclaimed designers will design Home of Metal: Black Sabbath – 50 Years for the Gas Hall in Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, the largest exhibition space outside of London.
