Black Sabbath
Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA

I had been looking forward to this show for a long time and it was better than I expected. Everyone sounded really good and Ozzy looked much, much better than last time I saw him. My biggest complaint was there wasn’t anything interesting in the show. If you are the type of person that wants a show to sound *exactly* like the album you’ve listened to hundreds of times, this was the show for you!

The show started off promising. Ozzy’s voice was strong on War Pigs and Into the Void even had a little bit of a jam while Tony and Geezer played off of each other’s riffs. For me, this was the highlight of the show. I swear Snowblind was identical the album version and they might as well have been lip syncing except for Ozzy’s constant repetition “show me your fucking hands” between every verse. The new material was engaging and they seemed to really enjoy playing it.

The drum solo was excruciating.
