On this day in 1971, Black Sabbath headlined at the Fillmore East

On this day in 1971, Black Sabbath headlined at the Fillmore East, in support of their second album, Paranoid. Tickets cost $3.50 - $5.50.

They sold out two nights, Feb 19 and 20, and were joined by Pig Light Show, J. Geils Band, and Sir Lord Baltimore.

This was the band's second stint at the Fillmore; the first time was on November 10, 1970, oddly opening for Rod Stewart & The Faces.
