BILL WARD’S DAY OF ERRORS ANNOUNCE WEST COAST DATES
Bill Ward’s new band, Day Of Errors, featuring Joe Amodea on guitar/vocals and Kill Devil Hill singer Jason “Dewey” Bragg on vocals, has announced some West Coast tour dates.
They are as follows:
7 Wow Hall – Eugene, OR
8 High Dive – Seattle, WA
9 Dante’s – Portland, OR
12 Great American Music Hall – San Francisco, CA
13 Catalyst – Santa Cruz, CA
14 The Garage – Ventura, CA
15 The Casbah – San Diego, CA
Ward says, “We play loud, hard, with overtures of gut-kicking heavy, heavy parts.”
In 2015, Ward released his first solo album in 18 years. Titled Accountable Beasts, it can be purchased on iTunes.
So, Sabbath does “The End” WORLD TOUR and Bill Ward does not participate due to “unsignable contract”. Then Bill Ward forms a “revenge band” and “signs on” to participate in a 7 date west coast bar/club tour? From a financial standpoint (and for the fans’ sake), Bill should have signed the Sabbath contract.
Totally agree, Rattlehead! This sort of gets rid of the excuse that Bill could not physically do “The End” tour, doesn’t it? This means that it all boiled down to money! Either the other three guys in Black Sabbath offered Bill a ridiculous contract to participate in the tour, or Bill was asking for some outrageous amount to participate. I was actually hoping that it was really about Bill not being physically able to participate, and not about something so petty as money. The fact that these guys could not work out the finances so that they could all participate in “The End” tour, and give their fans who stuck with them for almost 50 years the chance to see them perform one last time as a band, is just SO SAD! For me as a HUGE Black Sabbath fan, this will always make me think a little less of all four guys.
No way. At least this way he doesn’t have to walk Ozzy’s dogs.
my take on this is bill was kept out of the Sabbath reunion someone or all of them had an agenda from the start to keep bill out , it was probably part personal, part financial, and they wanted to say his health- i’m very happy bill has put together something- he obviously wanted to play, still wants to play , if your a musician , you play from the heart not from revenge – this is bill doing what he loves , because what he really loved was kept from him – ozzy, geezer, yony, they know what they did was f–ked up -they have to live with it –
Your take on this is definitely possible, but what if Bill wanted some ridiculous amount of money to perform on the tour? Let’s face it, nobody but the folks involved knows the true story of why Bill wasn’t involved in recording “13”, or performing on “The End” tour. Bill could have had health issues when the time came to record “13” that prevented him from playing on the record. Or you may be correct that there were personal issues between the guys. I watched “The End” on Showtime this weekend, and Tony seemed like he really wanted Bill to be involved with the shows in Birmingham, but they just couldn’t work it out. As a longtime fan of Black Sabbath, I certainly wish that the four original guys could have at least performed the Birmingham shows together. And shame on them for not being able to make it happen. But I don’t think it’s fair to put all of the blame on Tony, Geezer, and Ozzy without knowing for sure that they were to ones to blame of it not happening.
Guess I`ll check him out since he`s in the area. Curious to see what he has left.
I think it’s revealing how things work in this big ole’ World. One day we will know the details and will be disappointed to learn their’s truth to both sides claims. As long as the All Mighty Sharon is involved things will be muddled. I will see Bill at Dante’s for sure
