Thought I'd bump this up.
I went to see Ozzy with Slash opening.
Slash was pretty good but it took a couple of songs for him personally to get going. His singer for this tour is Myles Kennedy. He did great with the vocals, but not so much on showmanship. I'd give the overall performance a B or a B-. I really expected a lot more, but I guess a lead guitarist can only do so much. People got pretty fired up about the old GnR stuff, but not very much for his new stuff and he only played one VR song. As I was watching the GnR stuff get played and people got going, it made me wonder what it must have been like with the old band and Axl on lead. I bet places they played went nuts.
Ozzy was freakin' awesome. He came out, got everyone fired up and sang his ass off. The old fat man did a great job. He had a foam cannon that he kept blasting himself and those up front with. His band was incredible and he fed off them and the crowd fed off him. His performance was a very solid A in my opinion.
