The UK’s number one tribute to Black Sabbath are coming to Wigton for an anniversary gig.

Sabbra Cadabra, named after the song from the Birmingham band’s 1973 album ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath’, will celebrate the 51st anniversary of the band’s number one record ‘Paranoid’ at the Wigton Market Hall on Saturday.

Just as Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Ward, Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi did in 1969, Sabbra Cadabra are making the trip to Cumbria to perform a two-hour long set, performing the band’s second studio album in full as well as other Sabbath tracks including ‘Changes’, ‘Never Say Die’ and ‘Evil Woman’.

Neil Priddey, lead guitarist and manager for Sabbra Cadabra said: "They established themselves in that part of the north. It is probably more of a spiritual home than Birmingham."

Sabbra Cadabra are the only tribute act to have played for Black Sabbath and also work regularly on several anniversary events with their original manager, Jim Simpson.

Simpson said: “The finest of the Black Sabbath tribute bands, Sabbra Cadabra are magnificent. As Black Sabbath’s original manager, I can vouch for their uncannily authentic performance, taking me right back to the ‘Henry’s’ of 1969.”

Tickets are still available for £11 on
