You're kidding, right? You will have many chances to see Megadeth headline but this is most likely the only chance you will ever have to see Sabbath with Dio.

Well, in the interest of common sense, Metallica has sold alot more records and has had much more success than Dio-era Sabbath. Even if you exclude everything after "Justice."

There is no common sense that you are comparing a one single element with part of another entity. Let's say Black Sabbath and Metallica are two independent entities but what you are doing is partitioning Black Sabbath into different entities, what is not clear is what criteria are you using, replacement of singer? replacement of any individual that belonged to the band? If you do that to Sabbath, you should do that to Metallica as well.

It is just a matter of plain statistics.

I didn't really look at it that way. I was merely saying I prefer Megadeth to Dio-era Sabbath in general. But yeah, you're right.

I was just helping you put things in perspective.

Well, the reason I'm seperating it from the Ozzy years is because they aren't playing any Ozzy songs. Otherwise I would factor in the record sales of the Ozzy Sabbath years.

I'm so sick of people bitching that their favorite band is opening for someone more popular/successful. Reality check: Metallica's gonna bring in more fans and money. I know you all like to think that $$$ doesn't rule the metal world, but guess what? It does.
