Hey Guys,

I just went to the Black Sabbath Reunion Concert in Virginia Beach, VA on 
August 10th and it was the best show that I had ever seen. I hope that 
they change their minds and come back again, because that concert 
ROCKED!!!! Drain STH went on first and gave a kick ass performance, 
followed by Godsmack who was AWESOME. Then last but definitely not least, 
the Gods of all music, Black Sabbath took stage. Ozzy was so godlike, when 
he came on stage everyone in the whole Amphitheater and not one person sat 
down for the entire concert. They opened up with "War Pigs" and ended with 
"Paranoid." The most kick ass thing about the concert was how Ozzy could 
work the crowd, when he clapped everyone clapped, when he said sing, they 
sung. I had never seen so many people eager to please someone in my life. 
It was apparent that everyone loved seeing the original Black Sabbath 
together again. To tell you the truth at first I wasn't a big fan of Black 
Sabbath, my dad asked me if I wanted to go to the concert with him, and I 
didn't know what to expect. But after seeing them in concert, I bought a 
T-shirt and was singing the songs the next day. Ozzy made a believer out of 
me, and I now LOVE Black Sabbath. 

I really hope that they change their minds and come back because if they 
do. I'm there.

Let me start off by saying in my near 21 years on this earth, I have seen 
more than my fair share of bands/concerts than most people my age. Lots of 
different bands and many different types of music. This show was my first 
and only Sabbath experience to date and it ranks up there in one of my most 
memorable music moments ever.

Drain STH and Godsmack opened the show and put on pretty decent sets. They 
got the crowd pretty psyched. Then the lights went out and hell began to 
slowly break loose. After about a 2 or 3 minute video introduction of the 
old Sabbath days, Ozzy ran out on stage and Bill, Tony, and Geezer slowly 
followed him. As Ozzy was hamming it up, Bill hit that trademark count-in 
to the "Luke's Wall" intro, and the band tore into "War Pigs," the classic 
opener. What followed during the next 90 minutes was some of the most 
rivetting heavy metal I've ever heard in my life. I've been hearing that 
Ozzy's been experiencing vocal difficulities, but there was no such trouble 
tonight. Ozzy was in fine voice, although it kinda sounded like he forgot 
some of the words to "Iron Man." When he wasn't singing, he ran around 
with this mechanicl water gun and sprayed the people in the front, with the 
aid of several mounted water guns at the top of the lighting rig. Later in 
the show, he simply resorted to buckets, and I think he ended up getting 
himself more soaked than the crowd. Silly godfather of heavy metal...

Bill was poundin' loud as ususal and Geezer and Tony didn't miss a single 
note the entire evening. Highlights of the evening were War Pigs, Electric 
Funeral, Snowblind, Black Sabbath, and Paranoid (w/ a weird Supernaut tease 
in beginning).

There was only one thing I objected to a bit. Being that this is
supposedly the "last tour ever" for Black Sabbath and that it's the
original line-up and everything, there seemed to be a little too much
spotlight on Ozzy. Tony and Geezer disappeared to the far wings of the
stage after every song (maybe they were tuning) and Ozzy leaned back
against the drum risers and basked in the crowds applause. Out of the four 
members, Bill Ward was unquestionably MVP of the night (the tour). Not that 
the other 3 band members have ever really demanded loads of attention, but 
it did seem a little too much centered around Ozzy. Anyway, just my humble 

Nonetheless, the setlist speaks for itself. There's an incredible "ain't 
got nothin' to loose" attitude among the boys that I think contributes 
greatly to way they've been playing. I've seen few bands so play so 
intesely, yet be so relaxed at the same time. I think this tour, more than 
any to date, tells us why Black Sabbath is so important to music. Keep 
bangin' your heads...
