subject Concert Review for Chicago
Hey Joe, I just got back from the Chicago show and I got a concert
review for ya. The show was absolutley insane! I got pics to follow once
my friend get's them developed. We were on the side around row 30, so
they should be pretty good. And the setlist is pretty much the same
except they dropped ear in the wall.
Alright, I just got back from the Chicago show and it was INSANE. Never
in my life could I expect a group of 60 year old rockers to have so much
energy and power! But i'm getting a little ahead of myself...
First up was Machinehead. In all honesty I've listened to their new
album and don't really like it, but seeing them up close was a different
experience. Vocally they were okay (I honestly couldn't understand a
damn thing they were saying) but they played with alot of passion and
energy, especially surprising because the arena wasn't even close to
full. Not a bad opening act, but nothing rememerable.
20 minutes later: MEGADETH. I won't go into that much detail, but they
are one of my favorite bands and live they are amazing! They played two
new songs off UA which were good, but when they played the classics like
Peace Sells and Holy Wars the arena was shaking! The sound was tight and
they definetly had the crowd in a frenzy! A great act all the way.
And then it was time for the big ones: call them Heaven and Hell or
Black Sabbath, the sound was still the same and literally GODLIKE. Dio's
voice was in much better form then I was expecting, and he really put a
ton of energy into the songs. Geezer, Toni, and Vinnie were all synched
up and great, and their sound was DEFEANING! They hit most of the big
ones, and they really nailed Children of the Sea, Computer God, Die
Young, and (of course) Heaven and Hell. Only disapointment was they
dropped Ear in the Wall from the list,and since it's never gonna be
played again live it was kind of a letdown. But still, they were great,
and the fans let them know how much they thought the show ROCKED.
And honestly, for a kid that was only 3 years old the last time these
guys toured together, it was really a memorable experience to get to see
these guys together. A great show all the way, and I hope they have many

subject Review of May 5th Chicago show
Last night at the Allstate arena was
AMAZING. I never saw the Dio/Appice lineup before last night's show.
Never had a chance to see RJD as "Dio" either. The quality of Ronnie's
voice live is truly spectacular. The guy just flat out ROCKS.
INCREDIBLE. As usual, Geezer and Tony were magnificent. BONE CRUSHING
and beautiful at the same time...I don't know if that's how to explain
it but, it's the best I can come up with. The guys looked great, sounded
great, were great. I don't remember the entire set list. However, I
think it replicated what has been posted earlier about the tour. After
All (the Dead) really got the crowd fired up. The new tracks were
played. They were phenomenal - the crowd seemed to love them. A new CD
from this lineup would undoubtedly be unbelievable. Go to the upcoming
show(s) when it hits your town. You will love it.

subject Chicago show/Allstate Arena
I wanted to give you an update on the show last Saturday night 5/5/07
here in Chicago.
We were running late and only caught the end of the last song for
They were hard and loud and that is about all I can say there.
Megadeth was awesome!
I have always liked Megadeth but never caught them live.
The guys were pretty tight and Dave did not speak much so he could keep
playing and fit in more songs.
It was a pretty good list of songs but like any other they missed some I
would have liked to hear.
Heaven and Hell were amazing!
The band was tight and loud.
Geezer was crazy on the bass, Vinny was pounding the hell out of the
drums, Tony was the creator of Heavy Metal guitar as always and Dio was
right on vocally and put on a great show.
This was a much better show than any of the Black Sabbath shows I have
seen at Ozzfest with possibly the exception of the first one that Bill
Ward was back behind the drums instead of Mike Bordin.
These guys should stay together and put out a couple of full length
Heaven and Hell albums.
I love Ozzy and will continue to support him but I think it is time to
put the dream of a Black Sabbath album behind us and go with Hea ven and

subject Chicago show was absolutely AWESOME!
Being a guitarist and a Sabbath fan all
of my life, I couldn't help but see this show...especially since I had
no idea that Ronnie James Dio was ever even in Sabbath! I was just a
smidge too young to know, mainly because of not being allowed to go to
heavy metal concerts for a few years, yet, at the time....one of my
first concert experiences was seeing Ronnie during his solo years (Last
In Line tour, to be exact) and after not seeing him since I was a
teenager, totally made me feel that young again. I'm a 38 year old / 25
year guitarist, who learned (what I thought) was every Sabbath song
there was, until I heard "Heaven and Hell" and "Mob Rules" for the first
time, only a year ago...it was like being a kid all over again! Learning
what were brand new songs to me, on guitar, and then seeing them just
two nights ago, it really was just like being a kid again...all the hype
that comes from being so excited from hearing what is new to you, then
seeing it done, and seeing your rock hero for the first time in so long,
it really was an experience that I will remember for all my life...Tony
Iommi was brilliant, seeing Geezer "finger" pick every note so good, and
Vinnie's drumming was the best I'd ever seen live, and I've seen almost
every hard rock band there ever was. Thanks, guys, for making an old
man's childhood memories come back to life!
