Ozzy Osbourne showed the fans back

May 28 2007

Go to the past yesterday, Ozzy Osbourne concert - it was a sacred duty for most fans of heavy metal. After all, with him and the legendary Black Sabbath began the history of this popular style of music. It was the second visit to Moscow, Ozzy, and the first was held at the Moscow Peace Festival 18 years ago.

This Sunday the city will have a real summer heat. Came to the concert a few hours left to languish under the scorching sun and wandered in search of shade and cold beer. Hundreds of fans came to the concert from the farthest corners of our vast country. Get a coveted accreditation, and passed to the input of other colleagues with journalists, we rushed to their seats in the sector C6.

Placebo: Brian Molko and his group in Russia

Perfume: the rock opera of a Murderer

Smiles at the Festival City Council: Saturnus

Information about the photographers did not admit to the concert has been sent to the media for 3 days before the concert. And this is after the announcement lists the accredited. Of course, this question falls under the jurisdiction of Ozzie and that's his business, the photos you want or not. Just what was the problem of the organizers of the issue "failed photographers" correspondent accredited? Tickets for the stalls at concert Ozzie has long been sold out by speculators who sold before the concert is 3 times more expensive than face value.

Going into the sector C6, we saw a room packed to overflowing "Olympic", yes it was Hall, but not the scene. Watch a concert from a distance of 150 meters and yes even at an angle of 15 degrees to the scene of pleasure is not pleasant. Soon, by hook or by hook, climbing over the fence and evading the ticket collectors, I stepped on the central rostrum.

At 7 pm, without unnecessary delay, the hall lights went out, and the concert began. The sounds of the opening intro, appeared on the stage crew guitarist Ozzy Osbourne Black Label Society. Zakk Wylde, a very famous and masterovity guitarist immediately started to hack!

Within minutes, an inflated long-haired blonde with a huge beard, started the hall.

In the fifteen-minute break the audience increasingly chanted "Ozzie! Ozzie! ". Everyone was waiting for the legend. And the speakers were cries of the Great and Almighty. The musicians took the stage, and away we go ... A little plump, and the aged father of heavy metal on stage a lively and vigorous as in the 80th.

This was the first concert tour in support of their new album Black Rain, and the musicians were laid by 100%. Ozzie began his speech with Bark At The Moon and in the middle of the song, he undid the belt of his jeans, turned to the audience back and showed us his ass!

Every few songs the crowd poured Ozzie water from cooked for him buckets. Several times and got standing near the stage guards. Pouring the next bucket in the crowd, Ozzie put it on his head, and so a few seconds, walked across the stage. Osborne constant touch with the audience and, as always, exquisitely swearing.

Most of the songs performed are the first two solo albums Ozzy: I Don't Know, Goodbye To Romance, Flying High Again, Mr. Crowley, Crazy Train, and others. Of the new sounded just a couple of things - Not Going Away and Here For You, and 4 hits with No More Tears, including I Don't Want To Change The World.

Encore musicians played Mama, I'm Coming Home, Crazy Train and, of course, Paranoid from the repertoire of Black Sabbath! The text of the last song hall yelling heart. At the end of the band led by Ozzy went on stage, bowed several times and gone!On the second encore the musicians did not come out. With the sounds of the phonogram Dreamer crowd began to disperse.
