Just got home from this show! It was rocking! It's my 6th time seeing the sabs, and never was I this close...real small venue it was cool for a change. They sounded great! It opened up with E5150 (no surprise there) and started off with a blistering Mob Rules. Then Ronnie talked about the first song they ever wrote together, and played it - Children of the Sea. Next was "I" off dehumanizer, then a new one off the new record called "Bible Black" After that they did Time Machine which I really liked, and after that Appice went into a cool drum solo. When they went back they did another new song "Fear" Then after Dio talked a bit they did Falling off the Edge of the World which was powerful. They did one more new one after called "Follow the Tears" or something which was pretty good. Iommi started soloing then it turned into Die Young. They ended with an epic "Heaven and Hell" jam. On the encore they started off with part of Country Girl and ended with Neon Knights. Overall, very strong performance by the sabs! Not showing their age one bit! Keep on touring guys!!!
