Zakk Sabbath is a Black Sabbath tribute band consisting of Zakk Wylde, Blasko and Joey Castillo. They’ll be delivering the legendary bands greatest tunes with support from comedian Don Jamieson.
I think I’ve opened up a can of worms by saying that the fall tours were starting to come in steady and regularly. Here we go with the latest announced from the Wylde side (LOL) where the Berzerker has unveiled expanded tour dates for his Black Sabbath tribute band “ZAKK SABBATH”.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I’ve only seen some YouTube.com videos of ZS and those show that the act is a tight effort all around. I expected as much since Zakk played with Ozzy for so long and is well versed in the legendary material. I’m glad that a show at our own regional Gramercy Theatre will be happening since I’d like to catch this for sure. What do you readers think of this brief outing? Are you big fans of Zakk and his Sabbath renditions or will you forever pine that the legendary band has moved into a well-deserved retirement. Let me know in the comments section below. Oh yeah and fans of the Fast Food Metal variety might want to catch “Mac Sabbath” who will be playing the region in March if memory serves me correctly.
