The British Steel tribute act around here can play the same stuff. I have no personal animus toward this new guitar player, I'm sure he's capable to do whatever is asked of him, but capable isn't what people are going to ask for, especially and precisely because it is the farewell tour.
That's why I won't pay more than $20 for it.
Is this "farewell tour" a marketing ploy to draw more people to the shows? There is a new album coming out, maybe they will have a "change of heart" and continue on. Ozzy has been on a farewell tour since No More Tears.
