Heaven & Hell
5 (excellent)
Sound Quality
5 (excellent)

This show was excellent in so many aspects -- stage set-up, sound, light show etc. The band was tight as hell, Vinny really holding it down while Geezer just stayed busy all night, headbanging away. Tony...what can I say? The guy is ageless, just keeps getting better. He played Old Boy pretty much exclusely all night, swapping it for a black TI Gibson maybe once or twice. Dio looked & sounded great, running around & pumping the crowd up....he really looked like he was having a great time. Stagewise, it was quite similar to last tours'...gothic looking stone pillars on either side of Vinny, with Geez & Tony's backlines covered by a wrought iron fence. Very medieval looking. On top of their respective backlines were perched these evil looking cast iron GARGOYLES complete with batwings & glowing red eyes, pointed right out at the crowd. Some might say cheesy, I say METAL!!! If I had any complaints at all, it was just that it seemed to be a somewhat shorter set. I guess it was about 90 minutes but I felt like I could've done another hour, easy. Apparently they didn't feel the same! Oh well, it was definately quality over quantity & I really have nothing to bitch about, other than they cut off Country Girl after 2 verses! Again, I'm nitpicking, they turned in a stellar performance, & I'd gladly pay big bucks to see 'em do it again.
