Opener: Rival Sons
Label: Universal Music
In 1968, the foundations of Heavy Metal music was formed by four Birmingham, England mates under the moniker of Black Sabbath and it was then that the thunder began to resound. Now, almost fifty years later after nineteen studio albums, the three original founding members have embarked on what’s been labelled as “The End” tour. Yes at the end of this tour, its looking like the music world at large can thank Black Sabbath for a very inspirational Metal career. They would book a single night at the famed Madison Square Garden which sold out almost immediately after going on sale. A second show was added for the Thursday preceding it which is the one I am discussing below. If you were among the approximately 18 thousand Metal fans and I, you already know just how awesome this event was. If you were home watching the Facebook status updates and hoping for YouTube postings, please read on for my thoughts on the experience.
