Geezer and Tony really do put on a great show. It's amazing two blokes can make that much fabulous noise together. Time seems to have stood still and they are as good as they ever were.
Sadly that can't be said for poor Ozzy. He makes for a sad stooped figure. Judging by what I've read from folks who were at the gigs this blu-ray does an amazing job of editing a shambolic Ozzy into something like presentable form - the live vocals were much worse. But it's still not great.
I'll never be one to say people can be too old to rock - not when giants like Iommi and Page still stride the earth. But Ozzy just doesn't have it any more. Compare to the magnificent - truly magnificent - work the late great Ronnie James Dio did with Tony and Geezer in the few years before his untimely passing.
The blu-ray is worth having to see Tony and Geezer at work. And it does have some good moments despite Ozzy's difficulties. The groove is a bit let down by some rather ordinary drum work by Clufetos. Picture and sound quality is good.
