Subject: OZZFEST 05 Chicago Black Sabbath Review
Date sent: Sun, 31 Jul 2005 22:50:08 +0000
Yesterday morning I woke up to make the drive
to Chicago. (I live in St. Louis). I was very excited i had front row tix.
I didnt care too much for any of the other bands so upon my arrival I just
walked around waiting for the magical moment when sabbath would take the
stage. I knew the show in NJ before this sabbath didnt play so i was
wondering what kind of performance i would get.
The set change betweeen Maiden was only about 20 mins. At 9:15 sabbath
took the stage. And Ozzy sounded great.
Symptom of the Universe / Sweet Leaf / Electric Funeral
Fairies Wear Boots
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath Intro/ Paranoid
They did play a shorter setlist, probably because of Ozzy's cold. He had
some trouble with Dirty Women but that was it. Iron Man sounded amazing. I
saw Sabbath last year Ozzfest 04 and that was a flat sounding Iron Man.
But this year it sounded just as hardcore as the original and if rocked.
The whole thing ended at 10:16. It was the quickest and most satsisfying
hour of the day.
Being in the first row was the best. I kept giving the horns (rock n roll)
to Tony during NIB. "Your love for me has just got to be real..." bam Tony
gives the Rock n ROLL sign back and nods his head at me with a smile. The
rest of the show every time Tony was in front of me I would play my air
guitar note for note with him. He saw this and once again just smiled and
nodded. Geezer sounded great on bass. Bills playing was amazing, he looked
like he was gonna explode sometimes. Black Sabbath put every other band to
shame. They rocked! It was a great show, probably the best 61 mins ever!
I hope to send some pictures i took with a disposable camera, but i bought
the piece of crap inside the tweeter center and wasnt sure if it was
working. I havent got the film developed yet but I hope it comes out.

My friends and I went to our first concert
and seeing the Sabbath at Tinley Park. We went over to second stage
featuring Rob Zombie, Gizmatchi, and Arch Enemy just to name a few. The
highlight of the show was Arch Enemy. I don't usually like the screaming
vocals, but the vocalist was pretty good, and so was the playing. Rob
Zombie was pretty funny, for he asked his guitarist to play a Wah pedal
version of the Brady Bunch theme and everyone was laughing their butt off
still screaming for "Thunder Kiss".
We all had time to kill during some of the second stage performances, so a
few booths were visited. Five dollar a dart game was one of them, and I
won Ozzfest's 2005 cd sampler. Nick wanted to get Ohmwork signed, so we
promised him to go over there when it was time to meet Geezer. Tony didn't
show up due to his press conference he had to go to, but I got his
autograph anyway through pre signed Fused cd.
Onto the first stage. In Flames was up, Carter and I kind of missed them
because we had to wait for Nick to get Geezer's autograph. We did see
Black Label Society and Shadows Fall and they played spectacularly. The
only draw back was Mudvayne. In my own opinion, I feel Arch Enemy should
have been on first stage instead of them, but I digress. Iron Maiden
rolled around afterwards. Fantastic showmanship from Bruce Dickenson, it
kind a felt like Sabbath didn't really stand a chance against them going
first. Really great show. Finally, the band we've been all waiting for:
Tape intro was a nice touch, great selection of clips including the
underrated "Under the Sun/Everyday Comes & Goes". They played the usual
hits, but the ones that stood out like a sore thumb (or thumbs) was
"Symptom of the Universe" riff, "Dirty Women", and "After Forever". Tony
was really awesome especially in Dirty Women, Geezer stood out with his
haunting bass playing, Bill's drumming was ground crushing. And finally,
Ozzy's vocals have improved, at least from where I stand after listening
to "Live at Budokan" live album.
