this was my first time seeing this version of the band as it was for my dad and brother. we didnt catch any of the warm up acts as we arrived abit late but we were bang on time for the main event. looking around the arena before the lights went down i noticed that the back section was blocked off by a large black curtain, so it wasn't a sell out but still a very healthy crowd. there were supposed to be some local celebs in the crowd but i never saw any but i did see members of lunarmile in the crowd. the show kicked of with mob rules and the show just flowed from then on. the band looked well up for the gig and Tony Iommi was bouncing up and down the stage smiling and winking to the crowd he seemed alot more annimated then usual. geezer was his cool self and dio never missed a note . highlight of the show for me was voodoo with a cool little jam at the end of the song before vinny's drum solo which i also enjoyed. the crowd seemed mostly middle aged so it wasnt as rowdy as expected until they played die young and heaven and hell and then it livened up a lot more. the song heaven and hell was performed perfect as was all the songs. before the encore dio grabbed an england flag from the crowd and held it up to show tony and geezer and then thanked the crowd, he also said its always special doing a show in tony and geezers home town . when they went off it seemed a good 2-3 mins before they came back on to perform neon knights but it was well worth the wait. i have not one complaint each member of the band were on top form. my younger bro was never a big fan of the dio years but since this gig its all he listens too. it was a top show, one i'll always remember.
