  2. It might be worth noting that the CD issue is quite heavily and noticeably edited in comparison to the DVD show, presumably to try and fit the set onto the one disc. Most glaringly Vinny’s drum solo is missing despite Ronnie’s lead-in.

  3. I don’t remember if this came out before or after Dio died, but by the end of 2010 it seemed like Black Sabbath was done. Ozzy had a new solo band, and Heaven And Hell was in ruins. At the time, I thought this would be the last Sabbath release ever. It was a good send off.

  4. I’m halfway through watching the DVD for the first time and it’s really good. I read interview with Ronnie’s wife somewhere describing how much pain he was in by the time of this show, and how she couldn’t even believe he could do the show at all. Well, watching it knowing that, you could see that whatever Ronnie lacked in vocal power (not much by the way) he more than made up for in sheer spirit and determination. He’s not hitting the high screams like before but he’s laying it all out there – most notably by extending the last words of certain lines more often than usual. It’s as if he knew it was probably his last show. If you’ve watched this before not knowing this, watch it again. The dude gives his all.
