    They played Country Girl/Neon Knights as the encore. Ronnie introduces Country Girl as a surprise...they play the first verse of the song then go straight into Neon Knights.... There was no second encore.

    sorry, maybe I didn't write it clear enough

    my notes say Neon Knights was before THE ENCORE...i hate when I can't work out set lists from my notes and I didn't drink either

    They may have done the intro to 'Country Girl' before 'Neon Knights'.

Hey, we got the tremendous song "Fear"! We also got the fantastic epic "Falling Off The Edge Of The World", luckily so. "County Girl" was only an excerpt from its beginning, 1-2 minutes or something like that, then they medleyed into "Neon Knights" as a closer.

    Some people were disappointed about the setlist, but we all have many favourites which will always be omitted and certain classics will always be played no matter what. Hell, if they left some key classic away, then many people would complain about that! But we did get completely new songs, some new classics as a renewal, the good old classics we all want and - thinking positively - the band left us all hungry for more by not renewing the setlist too much, they left us wanting more and more...!

    hei I've got a question...I was reading the notes I took at Qstock and I wrote that they did another song after Neon Knights....and Dio introduced it by saying something like "i won't tell you what it's called, Tony will start it and suprise you and surprise us"....

    does anyone remember the encore because my notes definitely say Neon Knights was before they walked off stage....I'm so confused!

    My treasure

    I had the crowning moment printed as A2 sized poster and framed properly:

    http://www.black-sabbath.com/vb/album.php?albumid=22

    The frame is made of wood. As you can see it has this outer rim which has quite an interesting and stone-like black-shaded surface which also reflects shades of grey and a little bit bluish and greenish shades depending on the amount and angle of light. The frame has a thin center line which is deep shining black. The inner rim is of silver/chrome steel colour. I asked the framesmith to use clear glass instead of a dimmer plexi glass or matte plexi - it's 50 % cheaper but it gives more visibility and clarity. The framing cost only 20 euros.

    I'm very jealous, Sabbathman !!!
    But on the other hand I feel very happy for you. I'm glad you got to meet the Master himself.
    Thanks for the interesting post.

    Hey, that was a nice post indeed! Much obliged.

    Yesterday I got one of the Dio meeting pictures out as a vertical high-quality poster, size A2. Today I'm taking it to be properly framed. A picture of that treasure will emerge soon.

    These aren't the sort to retire. I think Ronnie will be performing and/or working on new material until the day he is no longer able. Same with Tony.

    Gr8 pics, looks like it was a divine confrontation for you. Am I wrong or is that a tear in your eye in the pic with RJD? I would do anything to meet the band, especially Tony and RJD, but It would ne awesome to meet Geezer and Vinny too.
    Yes, it was divine. No, it was not a tear. Iommi's intro on "Die Young" took care of those already...

    I didn't hold it in my hands, I only saw it on the table next to me. But as far as I remember it was the size of A5 and I think it had the Wal-Mart cover version of The Devil You Know. A little yellowish or light khaki-coloured pages, I saw only black printing on the pages. The pages were tied with a plastic spiral going through each page.
