I accepted the 200wordchallenge from Mike Ladano. I already reviewed another Sabbath concert this year. Since this is the last time I ever see Sabbath, I had to write about it. We missed Rival Sons since our train was late. Ozzy’s voice was better this time around, but still not in peak form. Ozzy had a hard time getting the words out in rapid fire. I heard guys talking after about how either Ozzy held the mic too far away, or the sound guy was at fault. I think it is just Ozzy getting old. Also, I would have left 4 songs off the setlist, and would have replaced them with some older songs and a few off 13.
Tommy Clufetos pounded the drums into submission. Tony Iommi was his awesome self. Ozzy was pretty good for his age. However, Geezer stole the show for me. His amazing finger work was possibly better than any bassist I have ever seen live. The last number of times I saw Sabbath I concentrated on Tony, Ozzy and Tommy. Not this time. I watched Geezer on the big screen and he was on fire.
Goodbye Black Sabbath. I’ll really miss you.
