View Full Version : Tony Martin -- Vxj, Sweden -- April 13th, 2006

Tony Martin and his band did a blistering gig last night in my small town of Vxj. Not even 100 people bothered to show up in a venue that would probably hold over 1,000 so it was very empty but the for all of us who attended it was a night to remember. To hear 3 tracks from my fav Sabs-album, Cross Purposes, was not something Id bother dreaming about since it seemed all too improbable, but last night my eyes wet when Dying for love started. Tonys son, Joe, pulled of the intro-solo like it was mr. Iommi himself and I was in HEAVEN!!!!

Truly a night I will not forget. A great set, great performance, Tony sang a lot better this time than in 1995 when I saw with Sabbath, and the setlist is a KILLER! As for the two vintage Sab-songs, which he of course didnt originally sing on, he merely did them as tributes to the Sabs as he loved singing them. Who am I to complain :)

Devil & daughter
Eternal idol
The hand that rocks the cradle
Dying for love
I witness
Odins court
When death calls
Children of the sea
War pigs
Raising hell
The shining
Headless cross

Cross of Thorns is my favorite song he's ever sang on, but the ones on there that I've heard are good! :metal:

Wow only two solo songs... pretty sweet set though :horns:

I edited the setlist as when I went through the recording I found that he did both Odins court AND Valhalla. So much for my knowledge yesterday ;)
