12 Heaven And Hell (extended version with Tony's Solos,more than 20 minutes long)


13 Country Girl (like intro,2 minutes short)
14 Neon Knights

In my opininon,they could play more much solos and instrumental passes...specialy the long-version of Heaven & Hell,maked me think like something happened to Ronnie, 'cause as time passing by he were nowhere and somewhere in the middle(?) suddenly the instruments turned off and then Tony beggin to play so,mething acoustic and then they beggin again from the start Heaven & Hell..Ok Tony has got nothing to prove as a guitarist..He is the riff-master himself and its pointless for someone payed a lot of money (too much expensive...)just see them play instrumentals...I know, Ronnie needs breaks to finish the set-list,but in the middle were 2 solos (drums and guitar)plus one more in heaven and hell from all of the band members,inluding Geezer...Ok respect...But respect the fan who had payed 60E for 90 minutes and 35 and more were solos..

It was a great concert!!!Dio was amazing!His voice remains perfect.Iommi displayed his magic.Geezer was in a great mood!Astonishing!Appice demonstrated once again his great skills!The only problem was the place.It was not made to entertain concerts and the sound was bad at the begging of the whole event.And Dio said something about this thing.But anyway!The setlist was good.The inning was presumable.In my opinion the songs of the new album were better in their live version!I would like to hear and THE SIGN OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS, but anyway.I saw them before in their 2007 visit in Greece-a great concert too-and i believe that were better this time!(BLACK SABBATH)HEAVEN AND HELL RULES!
