    Default Ozzy's New Tour

    Looks like those who missed out on Ozzfest will get another shot at seeing him this year. Seems like if any kind of reunion talk comes to fruition, it will be 2011 before that ball gets rolling. And if his voice leaves him again, Rob will already be in the building!

    I'll be seeing him in Toronto. Sadly I can't find a pre-sale pass.

    I spoke with Ozzy's keyboardist Adam Wakeman last week and he said they'd come back to play Finland again next year. Sounded like a done deal, so with the "Scream" tour getting extended, the reunion stuff might be even further off, if it's going to happen at all. We shall see.

    Floor tickets at the Canada Air Center are $333.00.

    They were $117.00 in 2007.

    I think they are even going to add more North American dates because the west coast is non existent. Man, Halford opening is the perfect choice for an Ozzy solo tour. This is a must see show.

    There was a bit of a price jack but after seeing the setlists hes doing it doesn't bother me. Already got my ticket in the first 10 rows and I can't wait for November.

    The current ACC tickets for the November show are in fact 105.25, not $333.00. I have floor seat tickets in my hand. Row 8

    The tour is starting six days from now in Victoria. Not long now!

    Tommy Clufetos said on Twitter that they're rehearsing some new songs that they might bring out so I wouldn't expect to hear/see the same setlist thats been going on.

    The new leg of the Scream tour kicks off tonight in Canada! Who is going, and what are you hoping to hear live? Will the rejuvenated setlist stay intact, and do you think the current renaissance Ozzy's voice is having will hold up throughout the tour? I may end up seeing him in NY or NJ for his birthday, and/or Vegas. I remember seeing him the night he ended up turning 40 on Zakks first tour with him, Anthrax opened up and most of the first ten rows of seats were destroyed. One of cushions ended up on stage and Ozzy threw it like a frisbee. It landed in the crowd and was ripped to shreds instantly by fans fighting for a unique keepsake. 22 years later, there is still that anticipation of seeing something unique at an Ozzy show. Have great and safe tour, Oz.

    OK, so I am a liar. I have a buddy who has never seen Ozzy. Bugging the heck out of me to go see him. Top that off with all of your talk here abou the new tour, and the set list, so......Guess who is going to see the Oz man, after not seeing him in 22 years???

    That's right..ME. I have tickets for 02.12.11 in Detroit. Should be interesting.

    and yes, I am excited to be going.

    Hope he holds up for you, dude. This last Ozzfest tour was impressive, but who knows what he will bring to the stage in February. 22 years is a long time, you missed everything after No Rest for the Wicked, so even just from a completest stance, you should get your money's worth.

    The set list looks very good. I hope it holds up as is through February. It should be a good show either way, but the more songs the better.

    I saw Ozzy with Sabbath in '99 but have not been to an Ozzy Osbourne concert in 27 years (March 1984), during the Bark at the Moon tour. And so yeah, guess who's going to see the Oz in December?!?!? In fact, I'm going with the same buddy I went with to the '84 concert. Should be fun.

    Its still a good set, more then we've come to expect from Ozzy before he kicked it in high gear earlier this year, but this resembles more of a "taste of Ozzfest 2010" rather then an actual album-support tour. There's only ONE song less then 20 years old here! It would be nice to see SOMETHING different from Ozzfest when I see him in the States, besides that the concert is now indoors!

    The Victoria setlist has me a little worried... I'm seeing him tomorrow night at the Vancouver show and to be honest if he does the same setlist as he did in Victoria I'll be a little disappointed. 14 songs + Rat Salad is a decent set but what got me excited for this tour in the first place were the big 16/17/18 song sets.

    Oh well, still gonna have a blast. 14 is still one better than 13, which is what I got last time. Will report with details tomorrow night or Monday morning!

    I think what makes this tour so damn great is that he's extending the set list at different times. This time, if you truly do "GO EXTRA, EXTRA FUCKING CRAZY!" he's staying out for a second encore and blowing through another 4 extra songs.

    A decent crowd and if his vocals are holding up, you may get a little something special!

    Holy fuck.

    Just... Holy fuck.

    Just got back from the Vancouver show.

    I'll get to the fucking point: It was awesome.

    Ozzy played for two and a half hours. Took the stage around 10 to eight and left around quarter past 11.

    20 songs plus Rat Salad.

    I don't remember the specific order but it was something like this:

    Bark at the Moon
    Let Me Hear You Scream
    Mr Crowley
    Suicide Solution
    Fairies Wear Boots
    I Don't Know
    Road to Nowhere
    Rat Salad
    Shot in the Dark
    Iron Man
    Killer of Giants
    War Pigs
    Flying High Again
    Believer
    No More Tears
    Into the Void
    NIB
    I Don't Wanna Change the World
    Crazy Train
    -----
    Mama I'm Coming Home
    Paranoid

    New to the set (I think) are Believer, Flying High and NIB.

    When Shot in the Dark kicked in thats when the gig went from "Good" to "Fucking awesome". I realized then and there how awesome it was to hear that song live (its one of my favourites).

    Dedicated Mama I'm Comin Home to Dio (which added a weird twist to the song lol but its the sentiment that counts)

    Did a harmonica bit but didn't do The Wizard (nearly shit my pants when he brought out the harp). Could appear on sets in the future.

    Ozzy was in top form. His voice was very good. It cracked here and there and it strained at parts but he still delivered. I actually think that as a frontman he upstaged Halford, which is really saying something. Let Me Hear You Scream had a backing track (most prominently in the chorus) but I don't care, the song was great live. He did lots of jumping around and running around and bowing to us and shit. It was classic Oz. He even threw a few buckets and unlike the last time I saw him the water made it past the first row.

    Gus G earned my respect tonight. He was fucking awesome (though he had a hard time on some Zakk tunes). Incredibly fluid playing. Tommy Clufetos is a goddamn monster on a stool. When Gus and Blasko were tossing out picks he tossed out his drum heads lol.

    On the Sabbath tunes Adam Wakemen played rhythm guitar. That was pretty cool.

    Overall it was an incredible gig. The guys over in Victoria must be pissed off.

    Ozzy wasn't kidding when he was talking about repeating history with the 2003 Canadian gigs. Tommy Clufetos just said on Twitter that they played the very longest they were allowed to play.

    Any worries I had were shattered and pissed on.

    Must have been great, i think this is the first time he's played NIB then for this tour! Great Set and he even played Believer! Your a lucky man.......
    Hope he comes to Australia......as i've said many times...

    I couldn't believe it (lol) when they did Believer. I heard the bass notes and I thought "Wtf is this?" And then it clicked and it was like HOLY SHIT. And that was just after he did Flying High Again.

    Diary of a Madman got good treatment tonight. Four Blizzard tunes and two Diary. Thats a high concentration of Rhoads right there. And Gus plays Rhoads really well.

    And according to setlist.fm this is the first time hes done NIB and Believer. He did Flying High a few times before.

    And if anyone is curious, I didn't hear "I can't fucking hear you!" until at least 10 songs in. Probably more like 15.

    Encouraging news! NIB, No More Tears, and Flying High Again are great songs for the setlist. And I'm glad he is no longer using Road to Nowhere as
    a Dio dedication. There is no perfect choice, but Mama I'm Coming Home is respectful enough for me.

    Awesome that he played Believer! Maybe Oz is taking a page out of Metallica's books and going to rotate a number of songs into the setlist throughout the tour, along with the "staples."

    Really? Based on the vids I've seen from the tour, I wouldn't rate him too high. His playing seems somewhat glitchy for me - it's not fluid like it should be.

    I doubt No More Tears will stay in the set. His voice really struggled on that one (though he actually managed to pull off the "You're mama told you..." line in a single breath which I've never seen him do before). NIB and Flying High will probably stick around though. The crowd went nuts for those ones. Flying High might have been the biggest hit of the night. Everyone went crazy for it.
