I was lucky to attend on Tuesday June 8th. I had little interest in seeing
the other bands, so I got to the venue after 6pm. 

As I expected, there were bands playing that did nothing but play lots of
muddy disorted riffs with a singer that grunts instead of sings.

The concession stands were not only really slow with their slot like
attendants, but a rip off. $3.50 for a bottle of water? I'm suprised they
didn't want me to bend over and pull down my pants.

I stayed on the lawn by the main stage. I had to endure torture by what I
believe were the Def Tones. What a poor excuse for music. These guys are so 
bad. Rob Zombie came up next, and he was actually good. Good stage props. 
Good show.....

At 9pm, the Sabs themselves came on. All I can say is they rule. They were
better polished this time than when I saw them at Nassau Collesium. The 
colors and lighting of the stage were great. Ozzy's voice held up for the 
most part. Apart from a few hiccups - the rest of the band were very tight. 
Bill performed wonderfully - better as the set went on.

I wont go into the set, but some highlights were:

- Great Solo before Dirty women. I didn't recognize it. It did not sound
like the solo from dying for love. But it was great nonetheless.

- The last part of dirty women has a piano in the background playing. It
sounded different and really good. I liked this touch.

- The SuperNaut teaser before Paranoid.

I was very satisfied by the show.....I hope they tour again.
