This is the setlist from the download festival at Castle Donington last night. I got it from setlist.fm and none of the comments on there disputed the set, so i'm guessing it's right. Hopefully I have the right city location. When I looked up where Castle Donington was that's what came up. Maybe ravenheart can help me out if i'm wrong since i'm clueless about the geography over there.

Black Sabbath
The Wizard
Behind the Wall of Sleep
N.I.B.
Into the Void
Under the Sun
Snowblind
War Pigs
Sweet Leaf
Symptom of the Universe (instrumental)
Drum Solo
Iron Man
Fairies Wear Boots
Tomorrow's Dream
Dirty Women
Children of the Grave

Encore:
Paranoid (Sabbath Bloody Sabbath intro)

The same songs as what they played last month. The only difference is they moved the songs from the first album to the begining of the set. I'm not sure how good Black Sabbath is as an opener? It's a great song but doesn't exactly have that get you pumped up opening feel to it. It's nice to see that even though Tony is sick they're playing a decent length set.

War Pigs is about as good an opener as you can get I think. Black Sabbath is good for opening the encore, or towards half way through the set, it'd be good for really pushing the atmosphere. Overall, very solid setlist, couple of changes based on personal preference, but it works!

Leicestershire is the right county, but that's like saying "Michigan" is the location of a show in Detroit.

Castle Donington is an actual place, so that's location. Venue is Donington Park.

I don't understand why they can't do the full version of Symptom of the Universe or Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Also, I thought Ozzy had said somewhere that he wanted to do a Dio era song in honor of Dio?

They can't do Symptom anymore because Ozzy can't sing that high anymore.

Also, no more Wheels of Confusion. :lame:

Same with SBS. There's no way on Earth Ozzy can sing that anymore.

Also, this.

They had less time at Download than in Birmingham, so something had to go. Wrong choice to cut though.

Pretty sure he meant it's lame they didn't play it, not that the song is lame.

They never get setlists right. Ever.

Seriously. It's my #2 Sabbath song.


One thing I don't understand is why they don't play Hand of Doom. That's perfect for Ozzy's range.

Totally agree. Drop Dirty Women instead of Wheels of Confusion also.

I'm still mind blown that I might actually get to hear Sabbath play Under The Sun live before I die. One can dream...

I'll never understand when people ask why they never play SBS or anything off Sabotage? Do people not realize how high Ozzy's voice gets on those two albums at certian points? Especially on Sabotage. Ozzy's voice was never meant to go that high and I believe he did permanent damage to it by singing that way. If there was a way they could work out the songs live and still make everything sound good, i'm sure they would've played some of that material. They're certainly not avoiding those two albums for no good reason.

Yup. Kinda surprised he can still do Sweet Leaf.

and agreed with jheldty, I always thought Dirty Women was lame.
