Well, once more Sabbath breezed threw the Ohio area, and, I guess the old
saying *IS* true - the third time is a charm! WHAT A PERFORMANCE!
THis was one of those show where the performer and audience just fed off of
each others energy driving the other to bigger heights! WOW!
THe set list was the same except no "Dirty Women" (Thank you!) - but the
performance was just a cut above everything I have seen them do on this
tour - energetic, masssive and full. Just no stopping 'em.
If this is TRULY the end of Sabbath, then I got to see one of those rare
gigs where the band exceeding it's legend. Ozzy was manic and note on
almost all night and Tony, Geezer and Bill were air-tight. We all know the
effects/stage setup but suffice it to say, the power coming off of both
Sabbath and the audience was PHENOMENAL. The audience was SO loud and
energetic - the band loved it, too - Ozzy, in particular exhorting the
crowd with "You're #1" over and over again. Sure, he does this all the
time, but you could tell he meant it.
Making this very special for me was my companion for the evening was dear
old Dad! He LOVED it and even commented on the band's musical power & the
performance...Dad is 60 by the way...even HE was clapping along and
admiring the show! WOW!
If ANYONE out there got this one on VIDEO, P L E A S E contact me!
ALL HAIL BLACK SABBATH!

This makes my third Reunion show. The one in Dayton was fantastic, Ozzfest
in Columbus was somewhat disappointing with Ozzy's throat problems, but oh
well, Sabbath was still good for as long as they played. I bought my
tickets with a little trepidition after the Texas shows(sorry about your
luck folks!)(really). Drain Sth came out strong, I really enjoy them. Their
music is just familiar enough with their twist to make it quite palatable
to my taste. Next, Godsmack, to me they are just another metal
band,although the vocals are easier to take than most. I ended up getting
12th row seats dead center( also stone cold sober). When Sabbath came out
it was just overwhelming to be that close! Yes, Ozzy looked tired and ill
but he held up fantastic. His voice did not even waver on Sweetleaf! He
finally did crack a few times on Children of the Grave, but not bad. his
vocals were strong enough this night that he almost completely overrode
Nicholls background vocals on Warpigs. I think even the Ozzman was
surprised that he held up this well, you could see it in his eyes as he
sang song after song! The rest of the boys were as always phenomemal, it
was a real joy to see Ward back with them this year! I actually shed a tear
to think this might really be the Last Supper for Sabbath, but what
