Reality check: H&H sold out Radio City Music Hall in 45 minutes, are selling out other dates in arenas, etc. etc. I'm sure Metallica could do the same thing, but the point is H&H is doing it too.
And c'mon, H&H is Black Sabbath. We all know why it isn't being called that, but considering the guys that are on stage playing as H&H were the exact
line-up that created two Black Sabbath albums... yeah. And so what if they don't play Ozzy songs. What if Maiden stopped playing songs from a specific singer on a given tour?
I don't like to see H&H opening for Metallica, but I'm guessing it has a lot less to do with dollars and a lot more to do with the fact they were asked to play as a guest.
