  • James K. on

    Great band. That’s a huge gig they’ve landed. Waiting for September 7th to get here is going to drive me crazier than I already am! As a life-long Black Sabbath disciple, that concert is going to be special.

  • Ray Gillen on

    yep very good band. Big step up from the last Sabbath tour when Andrew W.K. opened up, that sucked canal water.
