Two Potentially Awesome Concerts in My Near Future

9 02 2007

Hello all (anyone?)…

Well, I thought I would take the time to brag about two exciting (to me, at least) concerts I’ll be attending in the near future.

Wolfmother Album coverThe first one takes place February 25th in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and is Wolfmother. This band just rocks. Apparently they are a bunch of young guys out of Australia that sounds like they time travelled from 1972 (or so) to rock our modern world. They have a huge retro hard rock sound that I freakin’ love. If these guys are even half as good live as they are on cd, then this will be a great show. The venue they are playing is called Reds. Reds is a large bar/enertainment center. I’ve never watched a band there, but I know others that have and they say it’s not a bad place to see live music.

Heaven and HellThe next show is thew real big one: Black Sabbath (touring under the moniker, Heaven and Hell), March 13th at Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I have been a big Black Sabbath fan for a long time, and this incarnation of Black Sabbath is my personal favourite. This is Ronnie James Dio era Black Sabbath. For those that are not familliar, I will fill you in. When Ozzy Osbourne left/was kicked out of Black Sabbath in 1979/80, Ronnie James Dio was asked to step up to the mic and take over the spot of lead vocalist of the worlds Greatest Heavy Metal Band (my opinion, but hey, it’s my Blog). They released The two excellent studio albums, Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules, along with the live album Live Evil (Black Sabbath’s first “official” live album), before Dio parted company with the band. Several years later this incarnation of Black Sabbath reunited and released the album Dehumanizer. A song from this album, TV Crimes, made it’s way onto the Wayne’s Word 2 soundtrack. Part way through the tour for Dehumanizer, Ronnie James Dio left the band.

Any way, those are the shows. I will post reviews of them after the fact. Keep watching!

Seeing RJD and Iommi would be fantastic – I totally love Heaven & Hell, and Mob Rules – “Over & Over” from Mob Rules is a one of my favourite Iommi solos. I totally forgot about Live Evil until I read your post, I haven’t heard that album for years – but I remember that it always freaked me out that livE eviL is the same spelt backwards.

Wolfmother remind me of the Monkeys.
