subject Vancouver H&H Show
Some notes on the show:
- Only caught the end of Down's set;
they sounded great and the crowd was going nuts.
- Megadeth was good too, but their sound
was as bad as I've ever heard at a concert; huge ear piercing
feedback several times.
- Big crowd for a metal show in
Vancouver, which is not necessarily always a good draw for metal
bands. The building (in that concert configuration) was about 90%
full; probably about 8,000 people.
- Great sound for Sabbath, I mean H&H
- Crowd was super loud and rowdy during
H&H set. Big mosh pit. Lots of Devil Horn's hand signs from the
- RJD's vocals were perfect; stage
presence amazing (I have never seen him live before and was
- Tony's playing and sound was pure
Sabbath heaven. My brother in law, who is a guitarist, was just
drooling over some of the crunching chords.
- Tons of lights, but I was hoping for
the big cross of lights too.
- A bra was thrown on stage at one
point. Between songs RJD picked it up, looked over to Geezer's side
of the stage to someone behind a partition, and asked "Pedro, is
this yours?" RJD then walked to stage center and cheekily asked the
crowd "Whoever's this is, can you please stand up?"
- NO concert program available for sale.
At the age of 42, this is my standard concert souvenir. Tons of
shirts, a couple of belt buckles, I can't recall if there were any
hats. Hopefully a program is available for the US portion of the
tour and I can get it on Ebay.
- Local promoting radio station CFOX DJ
came on stage before H&H set; some quotes: "there was a problem at
the (Canada-US) border, so there will be no dragon in the show
tonight", "there are more stoned people here tonight than anywhere
else in North America".
- Attached is a scan of a H&H card
regarding a live CD and DVD that was being given away (along with a
Megadeth one) outside of the Coliseum.

Hey homies, just a quick note. You must
see Black Sabbath, er Heaven and Hell, when they come to your town. I
saw the band in a strange country on the norther US border called
Anyway, the opener, DOWN was fantastic. I forgot how good those guys
were! Phil Anselmo seemed strangely coherant most of the show. They
played one song I did not recognize, and it was sweet.
Megadeth normally puts on a great sounding tight set. Last night,
however, they did not get their sound right until the last couple songs.
They played two new jams that sounded vintage 80s thrash metal. Their
new disc should mow.
Heaven and Hell. There must be some strange legalgism going on because
the band never said "Sabbath", and the crowd did not know what to chant.
There were some poseurs who chanted "Ozzy", but very few. I've cut fools
for less; they were lucky to be in the Canada.
The set-list was awesome. No suffering though War Pigs, Iron Man, and
Paranoid! Instead some gems like Falling Off the Edge of the World, Sign
of the Southern Cross, I, Computer God, and Die Young. There were three
new songs- all killer. The first newby "Ear on the Wall" is frantic. It
slays. The next two newbys are crushingly heavy slow numbers.
The stage set was a cross between a cathedral or at times a dungeon.
Cool. See the show while the tour lasts!
PS. Tony looked to really enjoying hisself. He was still stoic, however,
that metal wiggle that pulses through his body when the metal is at
critical was more apparant last nite.

subject Heaven and Hell Pics & Mini-Review
All I can is WOW!!
Down was the biggest surprise, as they were friggin' H-E-A-V-Y!!! Philip
sounded and looked awesome and the rest of the band really smoked.
Megadeth was very good but nothing remarkable or outstanding...just a
solid Megadeth set. They had lots of audio problems, too. Backdrop
featured the new CD cover.
As for H&H, Dio sounded nothing less than perfect. His highs were
stunning and his growls were vicious. Some really cool lighting effects,
too. The stage is a medieval castle with bricks, torch lamps and a big
wooden door. Three small video screens project images up above the band

subject Sabbath Tour Review
Having seen a number of bands on a "reunion" type tour this one ranks
the highest, some of those other bands should really not be touring at
all. The Heaven and Hell reunion tour started off with a bang, big stage
presence, lots of energy and an audience starving for more.
Has it really been 13 years since these guys played together ? Musically
the band was tight, lights and sound all were beyond compare If anything
the vocals were a bit low in the mix.
I first saw Ronnie back with Rainbow in 76 at the Liverpool Empire,
however it was my first time seeing the other band members live, so at
long long last I finally got to to see the legendary Tony Iommi onstage,
no disappointments there at all.
I often feel honoured when a band starts or ends its tour in Vancouver,
I know its partly to do with geography, however I think there are a few
thousand other headbangers in Greater Vancouver waking up with smiles on
their faces this morning.
Keep on rockin'
Ian in Vancouver

subject Heaven and Hell Concert in Vancouver
I am a big fan of both Black Sabbath and your website, and have just
returned home from the Heaven and Hell show that opened in Vancouver,
B.C. tonight. Since I first heard about the tour dates from your
website, I would like to give my thoughts on tonight's show.
I originally went out of nostalgia since I saw them during the Mob Rules
Tour in 1982; however, I was very pleasantly surprised. In a word, they
were awesome! The band sounded great and very tight. For me the
following songs were show stoppers: Children of the Sea, Computer God,
Voodoo, Die Young, Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules, Falling of the Edge of
the World, and the new song Shadow of the Wind was very powerful. My
favorite was Sign of the Southern Cross. The way they played it for the
audience was amazing. The oncore Neon Knights sounded very heavy and
fantastic as well. I have been a Sabbath and Tony Iommi fan since about
1974. To me, his live sound just keeps getting better with age. His
sound throughout the show was very powerful and moving. To everyone who
has not yet bought tickets for the Heaven and Hell Tour, go and you will
not be disappointed.

subject Vancouver Canada Show March 11/07
I just got back from the Heaven and Hell show in Vancouver Canada. What
a great show! The stage was done like the front of an old castle or
church made of bricks with the drums about 4 steps up in the centre
stage. On each side were brick pillars with iron rod type gates. The
windows on the front of the building were video screens that showed
different views depending on the song being played.
