Plus, most people going to these shows don't know Sabbath existed without Ozzy anyway so what's the point? When they first reunited back in 1998 they did rehearse Heaven & Hell with Ozzy but dropped it because Ozzy absolutley stunk at singing it.
There's no reason anybody should have a problem with them only doing the Ozzy stuff. Their first six albums, I believe is the greatest six album streak in metal history, so there should be no complaints over focusing on the original lineups discography.
Wow I didn't know they even attempted to do any of the dio stuff with Ozzy. I just read iommi's bio and apparently theres a recording of Ozzy singing children of the sea before he left and they got dio in 1980.
