Fans of rock music may be tempted to book luxury Florida hotel breaks at the end of July in order to catch Black Sabbath's forthcoming live show at the Cruzan Amphitheatre.

The legendary British rockers will be performing at the Palm Beach venue as part of a wider North American tour, with the show to get underway at 19:30 local time.

Known as one of the most influential and important heavy metal bands in history, Black Sabbath were originally formed in 1968 by guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, drummer Bill Ward and charismatic vocalist and frontman Ozzy Osbourne.

Since releasing their self-titled debut album in 1970, they have cranked an impressive series of hits and remained hugely well-respected for more than four decades, despite multiple lineup changes and a few periods of inactivity.

Over the course of their career, they have sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and were voted as the greatest metal band of all time in a poll carried out by MTV.

Now, despite some differences in the past, Iommi, Butler and Osbourne have reunited to produce a brand new album called 13, which was released earlier this month to a positive critical reception.

It has also proved to be an unprecedented commercial success for the band, who have topped the album charts in the UK for the first time since 1970, as well as notching their long-awaited first ever number one in the US.

The new wave of popularity that Black Sabbath are currently enjoying is likely to ensure that tickets for their Cruzan Amphitheatre show will be in high demand.

People wishing to attend the show could book a Summer Sizzler deal at The Chesterfield Palm Beach Hotel, which includes perks such as an evening cocktail in the Leopard Lounge Bar and continental breakfast in the morning, as well as complimentary Wi-fi access and valet parking.
