Ozzy Osbourne has confirmed his South American dates and he will play here in Rio next month. When I heard rumours about this show I decided that I would not see it. Ozzy? Come on! The guys is dead and he still doesn’t know!
I remember back in 95 when it was the last time he played here in Rio (if my memory isn’t playing tricks on me). It was a hell of a show! I didn’t go at the time (don’t remember why), but I know a few people who went and for what they told me, I really regretted not going! Really did! And this regret is what is trying to convince me to go this time! But I honestly don’t know! I don’t think Ozzy can perform on stage anymore, can he? In what condition is his voice?
Money is THE big issue! I have just spent loads of money going to see Maiden in São Paulo (plus a mini holiday) a few weeks ago. Helloween has confirmed its gig here in Rio with Gamma Ray as special guests (and this is a MUST GO) next month. So, going to see Helloween probably means not going to see Ozzy. Not necessarily if I withdraw money from my saving accounts. The question is: Is Ozzy still worthy it?
Edit: I just saw this video recorded in Toronto last January. See it! Oh better, don’t see it. It’s a waste of time. Ozzy is totally out shape, he can’t even sing the high notes anymore. It’s sad how he destroyed one of my favourite songs. I could have slept today without watching this video. No way I’m going to waste 200 bucks to see him. That’s very sad indeed. :-/
