Black Sabbath touring in 1999 has four distinct parts.
- The Reunion Tour – these shows were officially to support the Reunion album.
- Ozzfest ’99 – Sabbath headlines the annual Ozzfest.
- Summer 99 – These dates were not Ozzfest shows, they were “Sabbath” shows
- Winter ’99 – These are Sabbath shows in and around England
1999 Tour Notes
- Vinny Appice was on tour with the guys “just in case” (those words are from the tour program). The “just in case” was in case Bill Ward couldn’t ‘handle it’.
- These gigs were originally planned back in Nov 98, and then cancelled before tickets went on sale: Anaheim, CA (Jan 7), State College, PA (Feb 1), Montreal Canada (Feb 11).
- The Philadelphia PA gig originally scheduled for Jan 28 was postponed to Feb 18th.
- The Pittsburgh PA gig originally scheduled for Jan 29 was postponed to Feb 19th and became the last show of the tour.
- The Salt Lake City gig was originally scheduled for Jan 14th, then postponed to Feb 23rd, and then cancelled.
- The Denver gig was originally scheduled for Jan 15th, then postponed to Feb 21st, and then cancelled.
- The Buffalo gig was originally scheduled for Feb 1st, then indefinitely postponed, and then cancelled.
- Towards the end of the tour there were a couple of gigs rumoured to happen in Tenessee, but they didn’t occur.
- There were three gigs added and then cancelled in the same wave of cancellations that affected Buffalo, Denver, & Salt Lake City. These gigs were Peoria IL (Feb 25), Ames IA (Feb 26), & Fargo ND (Mar 2).
- All of these cancellations were due to problems with Oz’s voice (throat nodule(s)).
