It was October 30, 1970 when British hard rock pioneers Black Sabbath gave their first performance in the United States at Glassboro State College (now Rowan University.)

The Glassboro performance came on the heels of the release of their second album, Paranoid.

The team at UltimateClassicRock.com has more about the performance.
