As much as I wanted to see Priest, I had no interest in this show. The setlist we got last year was worlds better and they had Priest, Testament and Motorhead opening... FOR THE SAME PRICE!

The fact that they don't play Sign of the Southern Cross every show is laughable to me. It's one of the best live songs I've ever heard and even if they did a medley with SotSC and Voodoo instead of a drum solo from one of the most overrated drummers of all time it would have been better.

Who doesn't want to hear TV Crimes, After All the Dead, Wishing Well & even Atom & Evil?

Sorry guys, not trying to be negative... just being real. They'll be back and hopefully they'll play a better set next time and will be worth seeing.
I'm totally with you when it comes to bands charging more and playing way less time. It's happening far to often these days and it sucks. Even Dream Theater has gone from playing 3 hour sets to now only doing 90 minutes on the current tour. Besides Rush, Metallica, Maiden and AC/DC there are very few acts out there right now who are giving you a two hour set anymore. Sure the economy has some effect on ticket sales but when bands play 90 mins or under as a headliner i'm sure that has an impact as ticket sales as well.

I've criticized HNH's set lenght as well but as I said eailer in the thread last week news broke that Iommi has been working with an injured hand for the past year or so and he needs surgery on it when the tour is over. Given this news I now understand as to why the set went from 15 or 16 songs in '07 to only 11 in the last year. Too bad they didn't come out with this when it happened fans wouldn't have been bitching so much about the set then.

The set list is a little short but it would not bother me if I saw that setlist. Atleast I would get to see them. Seeing them play a short set is better than never seeing them at all.I dont blame people for wanting a longer set.

I'm sure you meant it would NOT bother you!

I think you're missing the point but that's cool. Comparing them to last year and comparing them to Priest the night before this show was a rip-off for that price. If Iommi is nicked up, charge less or get Testament and Flotsam & Jetsam to open so the true Sabbath fans get their moneys worth.

While I don't hate Coheed the Sabbath fans must have thought it was Jack Osbourne on helium opening. hahahaha

I personally would really go for seeing Wishing Well myself.
Remember that Dio's voice isn't what it used to be and TV Crimes is a rather fast song.

Damn.


Thanks for the amazing memories, Ronnie.

Hilarious and sad at the same time.

Looking back at the set length with the knowledge that Iommi needed hand surgery badly, Vinny had a shoulder injury, and Dio had fucking cancer certainly explains why there weren't more songs.
