OzzFest -- Detroit, MI -- August 4th, 2005
 
It's true, Bruce did fall. He's also an incredible asshole who constantly scolded the crowd, complained about the name of the venue, and mentioned that this isn't a real tour, etc. etc. Sabbath was spot on, and definitely had the place 10x more alive then Maiden. Both bands were awesome. Maiden opened with "Murders in the Rue Morgue", which was a great surprise, since I was expecting "Wrathchild". Sabbath didn't play "The Wizard", but their set was very tight, and Ozzy seemed just fine, although he mentioned he was sick and said his voice might crack as a result.

It was a great show, but I didn't have a report last night, nor now, beause we got hit in the parking lot. Some fuckers decided they had the right away coming out of their spot, and slammed straight into us while we weren't even moving. So... we had to get the Michigan police involved and all that. We didn't get back until 4AM...

I'll have a full report tomorrow once I return from my vacation, I just wanted to let everyone know that it was a really great show. Both the headliners had an incredible amount of energy, and the performances were spot on. I'll have the full details later though...

I also see I really lucked out on seeing Sabbath...

He really did :(

I didn't mind the scolding too much. I was definitely putting a lot of energy out during their set, but it was a little annoying, because he did it over and over. He just didn't seem happy to be there. However, the rest of the band was all grins. So, ignoring Bruce, it was great. He was also singing just fine.

I have lost my Maiden virginity :eek:

Bruce ain't going to attract new fans this way... :mad::

I can't wait for the story behind Maiden and Ozzfest to leak.. and it will eventually.

Here's a rundown on Bruce, before I head back to the lake...

He was never happy with the crowd's energy. I understand that not many people were responding. However, there were people like me going absolutely ape-shit the whole time. Instead of being angry that not every person is going crazy, he should be thankful for the ones that are... we got no respect. He constantly complained about us not being loud enough, and there were a fair number of people going crazy. He also whined about the venue name, "DTE Energy Music Theater, what kind of a fucking name is that for rock?" He mentioned it a few other times. That doesn't bother me, it just seems whiney. He also mentioned we should come see them this fall on tour, because this wasn't a "real tour". Also, I haven't heard anything about a fall NA tour?

Maybe that's just how Bruce always is, but if so... he really comes off as an arrogant asshole.

That said, Maiden's set was absolutely amazing :rockdevil

Bruce is struggling with a karmic imbalance.

Me too, somehow I think you guys are blowing Bruce's complaing a little out of proportion.
