Wow. Blown away yet again by the awesomeness that is Black Sabbath live. Particularly by the stellar guitar playing of Tony Iommi - the man's spirit is unkillable, despite his struggles with illness. And of course Ozzy, Geezer and new drummer Tommy put on a great performance too.

The band has just concluded their final ever world tour here in NZ - so how could I not attend? Not a cheap gig, but totally worth it. My gaze was riveted the whole time to the stage and I sang along, of course, as did the rest of the crowd. The whole set was amazing but particular highlights for me were "Iron Man", "Beyond the Wall of Sleep", "After Forever" and "Snowblind" (if I had to pick one absolute fave Sabbath song, that would be the one.) <3

All in all, one of the best shows I've ever seen. I am fortunate indeed to have been able to see them twice. :D

Iron Man by Sabbath AND Ozzy ( on his live album) kicks ass. Somehow I imagined that song playing over and over again in the Downey movies LOL.

Snowblind was also on a live Ozzy LP. I am pretty sure what I remember of it it was about cocaine. ;)

You go to a lot of concerts, that rocks! :)

It truly was an amazing show. I wish I could afford to go to more concerts! <3

Well if you can believe this I've never been to one because I have a fear of being trampled.

But I can always live vicariously through you :P

Thankfully there was no danger of that as we had seats and the crowd was very well behaved, but I can understand that fear. Some venues here aren't the best and I tend to avoid those!

Wow!

Glad you got to go. The way this year has been going, you can't count on second chances for things, final tour or no.
