Kiwi rock gods Shihad will support Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath at two Auckland shows in April.

Shihad, who celebrated 25 years as a band in 2012, will open for the band credited with creating heavy metal when they play at Vector Arena on April 20 and 22.  

Tickets for the first show have sold out.

The shows come ahead of a busy year for the Kiwi band, fronted by Jon Toogood. They will record their ninth album in Egypt and Spain later this year, as well as playing at a number of European festivals.

The April tour will be Black Sabbath's first New Zealand show with the original line-up in nearly 40 years.

Osbourne - the Prince of Darkness - and bassist Geezer Butler and guitarist Tony Iommi last played her in 1974, four years after the release of their self-titled debut album.  They have gone on to sell more than 70 million albums.
