I remember seeing Sabbath with Ronnie James Rio & they didn't stand out compared to other bands .( Dios' own band shows were good however).They weren't much of a visual act & on this concert DVD Geezer is more or less rooted to the spot , Iommi wanders about a bit & Ozzys' stagecraft is limited to occasionally shuffling about like Norman Wisdom & repeatedly shouting " I can't hear you " & " let me see your hands " & doesn't really build any rapport with the audience inbetween songs . Meanwhile , Bill Ward is ridiculously nowhere to be seen.

Hence ,there isn't much to see visually & the stage set is a bit Spinal Tap . The whole show comes across as a bit plodding although ' Fairies Wear Boots' lifts the tempo . 'God is Dead' is a surprisingly flat choice as one of the encores .

Although the show is fairly well shot & it's probably worth watching once I would say this DVD is one for fanatics only.

Taken from two nights filmed early in 2013 in Australia at the beginning of the '13' tour, this Sabbath DVD is worth owning. Ozzy hits a few bum notes, shouts a couple of times too much (over Geezer's bass solo at the start of 'N.I.B.' for one! Stop it!), and doesn't sing all the killer lyrics at the beginning of opener 'War Pigs' - instead letting the audience sing half (call and response shenanigans on the first song of the concert - no thanks!), but those niggles aside, great playing by Iommi & Butler and Tommy Clufetos who delivers a nice drum solo too. Classics mixed with several new ones. Good stuff then, but no extras.

I have been a Sabbath fan since they began, and saw them twice in the 70s. They were great live back then, so when this tour came around,i bought tickets to see them in Glasgow, to pay homage to my heroes,but with 0zzy,Tony,and Geezer,all in their 60s,i feared time would have taken its toll,and the band would just be going through the motions,for one last tour. How wrong could i have been, they may look a bit older, but have never sounded better. This DVD/CD collection, is taken from the same tour, and although it cant quite compare to actually being there, it captures the band at their very best, making all the old songs sound as vibrant, fresh and powerfull as they ever did. If you are a fan, or like heavy rock, this set is a must, its amazing, so dont miss it. PS I agree with a previous reviewer, its a pity the included cd doesnt contain all the tracks from the dvd, but this doesnt detract from a wonderful product. BUY IT NOW.

The guitars and drums are fine, it’s spoilt by Ozzy mumbling, but there again it’s how he is these days

I have been a Sabbath fan right from the start, having seen them at the Birmingham Odeon. If you are like me, you will enjoy this DVD. An absolute corker of a concert with all of the band at their best. Ozzy even gives a few fans in the front rows a free shower.

I saw Sabbath in the early days and have followed them through thick and thin, blimey is it 44 years....
The tracks here are a mainly earlier stuff with a few of the new album tracks.
The playing is as always excellent, and Ozzy seems to have regained his vocals again.
One downer is that the CD version rather shorter than the DVD (by 5 tracks)
