Two issues with this. One is that Ozzy is more popular than RJD. Thus, they have little chance of packing arenas as Ozzy does. Two, they are using a name that is relatively unknown. Their success will hinge upon how well they can let the public know who they are in time to buy tics. My suspicion is that H&H shows will look a lot like a Priest or Maiden audience in N. America when all is said and done. But who knows. If their new tunes are really good and they get record company backing for radio play, anything can happen.
