subject Setlist, review, from reading pa sept 11th

After seeing Heaven in Hell in Philly in May I returned to reading to go again. The songs were much tighter . Dio is really kicking ass and giving a great performance. Mr. Iommi And Butler are always beyond great. I did notice how great they had there instuments and notes shake the Roof off . And my girlfreind loved the vibration shaking her coochy. Only sabbath can get them power notes. Two devil horns up for this show. I really like how they had drum solos that seemed to die after the eighty's and the general admission at the old spectrum was classic. I got to score a pic from Iommi . Although unlike the one my girl got in 99 it didn't have Iommi on it .It had H H for heaven and hell. but it came from him so it could have said old mcdonald and I still would have been happy. That pick is going to the front of the line of my Dimebag picks and joe holmes pic. I always wanted Iommi's pic but was so mezmerized in the front row by him 3 times previous to H & H that I couldn't take my eyes off the stage. Black Sabbath getting back together is what got me through alot of hard times since 97 and to get a chance to see the dio stuff was a special bonus. I just missed seeing them when I started going to shows . My first was with Ian Gillian . I just hope in the future sharron goes to and old folks home and leaves sabbath alone so Ozzy and the guys can give us one last tour. It started with Ozzy and should end with Ozzy. This was my sabbath shows, 1X Born Again Tour , 7 X with Ozzy, And 2x with Dio. Life Is Good My Freinds. Thank You Sabbath And Thank You Joe for this great site and place to get great pictures. My girls phone took these pics . There not great and it sucked cause at reading they didnt search and I could have taken my good camera . I'll send more later. I just got home and sabbath kicked my ass once again.

Hi All,

Today is Friday the 14th of Feb. I saw Heaven & Hell on Tuesday night in Reading, PA. My review is as follows:

This is my third Heaven & Hell show on the tour. The first being Radio City and the second being Merriweather Post Pav. in Maryland. We had front row tickets due tot he fact that we paid out the nose; I have to say that we were expecting greatness. I am not sure that is what we received.

We showed up when Alice Cooper was going on stage. Alice is one of my all time favorites and he never disappoints. Great theatrics as usual. This was the first time that I saw him hung as opposed to being guilitined. He was awesome! Great songs: School's Out, Billion Dollar Babies, Halo of Flies, Steven, Only Women Bleed, Welcome to my Nightmare, Is it my Body-pretty much all the classics! If you have never seen Alice, you def. should go; he is a real legend.

Heaven & Hell started about 30 minutes after the Cooper set. They used the same backdrop/castle seen as I've all tour. This is probably the best backdrop for any concert that I have ever seen. I decided to turn around to see what the attendance looked like as E5150 started. The place couldn't have been half full; it was empty to say the lease. The floor was covered and the side bleachers next to the stage. That was it. I told my friend that this tour is really losing steam. I couldn't believe that ALice Cooper and Heaven and Hell wouldn't be a bigger draw. Anyway, after E5150, I thought, "Here comes After All (The Dead)." I was wrong; it was dropped from the set. This wasn't the only track dropped. They dropped The Devil Cried, Shadow of the Wind, and Lonely is the Word. I guess I was disappointed at that because I really wanted to hear the new songs esp. The Devil Cried.

Highlights of the show were an extremelly lengthy Iommi solo. To be that close was incredible. Real jazzy and bluesy at times and other times just pure metal. The guys sounded great though. Despite being a shorter show, Ronnie sounded incredible, Tony (what can I say-great), Geezer-great, Vinnie (loving the whole thing.)

Well, like everyone else-I hope the whole thing happens again someday!
