As for Ozzy, editing has done him wonders. Like many fans, I've seen quite a bit of Youtube footage of this tour, and while fan-filmed Youtube videos can't exactly be hailed for their pristine sound quality, it was obvious that Ozzy did not sound much like the Ozzy of yesterday during this tour. His voice frequently cracked, he had trouble finding the right key on most nights. And he now does that troubling thing onstage where he sings a verse or two, then takes two or three steps away from the mic, then seems to remember that he can't go far from the mic stand, and rushes right back. It's not like he does this every now and then; he does it on every song throughout every show. With the magic of editing, however, all you really see in this footage are those rare moments when Ozzy actually runs around the stage a little bit and interacts with the fans or with Tony. Of course, his vocals have also been cleaned up so that he sounds at least listenable, but seriously...Read more ›
In the beginning, they show some folks coming in with three generations to see BS, but the crowd is kind of mellow compared to concerts of the past. (I suspect they are not likely all high out of their socks, and the excitement in the arena is not quite "the 70's Black Sabbath" crowd.;-) To be honest, Tommy looks like he is trying to stay conscious while playing. Not that he was ever a big showman/active, I mean it in the "I have played this so much, I could probably be dead and still play this". Oh, of course he is awesome as ever, but I very much get the feeling he is not in this for any long haul, and looks tired. It don't impact his playing at all.
BTW, these are just things I noticed, being a loooong time BS fan, and having been to the concerts in the 70's, the 2013 tour, and some closer shots than I was able to get at the show, on the DVD, and he looks tired. But they sound great!
Video: I give it 4.5 stars. (Thank you God the Hockey game producers took the night off!!)
Audio: 5 stars
Lighting: 4 stars (Yes, you can see the camera shots!!)
Overall: It is the first high quality Video and Audio theater concert DVD, and If you are a Sabbath fan, you MUST own this!!
I LOVE BS, and I love the DVD. So I will put the petty things I notice aside because this DVD blows away the VHS re-do of the 1978 concert!! Yeah, I know Bill... But he arguably has the most physical role in the band....Read more ›
The Last Supper was great, but the interspersed interviews detracted from the concert segments.
If you are a Sabbath fan, this is a must have. On Blu-ray, the video and audio quality is amazing.
The Blu-ray visual and audio is immaculate, with the concert coming in at around one hour and 45 minutes. Totally awesome presentation of the bands skills. I have not seen a video this intimate outside of a boot leg filmed in London where after introducing everyone bill ward was introduced multiple multiple times, and they even did a football chant in the club using bill ward's name. I digress, that reunion to a video had a vibe that was really powerful, and you can definitely feel it in the concert video in high definition. The only way to experience this concert is in 5.1 and it is brilliant. The CD comes in at one hour and 10 minutes and it is awesome too, the power of the concert comes through in a slightly rearranged running order, but one which is nonetheless a brilliant piece of work. I hope that everything works out and we can see the guys do this again (and you
know I have to say this), and I hope they get to include bill ward.
There is a special edition of Dio with black Sabbath/a.k.a.Read more ›

Great concert video, Black Sabbath still at the top of their game. Except with a different but very good drummer, I think the guy that was with Dream Theater. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mike at the solar home

This is must have for any Black Sabbath fan. Even though this video is for the 13 tour, there are more Sabbath classics than new songs.Published 2 months ago by B. Vogel
