A sad and thankful heart this morning. In a few hours Black Sabbath will play their final live show in Birmingham. All I want to say is thank you for creating my favorite genre of music, this wild untamed behemoth we call heavy metal. Ozzfest 2016 in San Bernadino, California was the last time I saw Sabbath live and its was a blast. This is the full concert from day one of Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, on Saturday 24th September, 2016. A meeting of the two largest heavy metal and hard rock festivals in the stinking hot California sun. I danced, screamed my lungs out, got sunburnt, broke a finger, hung out with some neat people and had more fun than I’ve had in a long while. This show was also their final show on the West Coast.
To everyone privileged enough to see Sabbath tonight have a ball. To the members of Black Sabbath thank you for all the music, the theatrics, the shenanigans, your sheparding of new bands and for all the pure unadulterated fun. We adore you. You’ll be greatly missed.
Black Sabbath Live at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, September 24, 2016. 🤘 Aleksa.
