Ozzy or not I'll still travel to the hell hole in March if only to check out their record and musical instrument shops and maybe, if I'm really lucky I'll get the royal treatment from the Maldivian princess.....

Forgot to share these from last December,
Fun Night!!!!!!
They did "Bongo Fury" in its entirity.
21 songs in all if I remember right.

My wife told Napoleon that she loves his voice to which Napoleon quickly replied "Its better now" the guy still has it.
They announced that Denny was playing the same guitar that he played on the actual BF album to which Denny replied "and its still got the same strings"

Ozzy Osbourne cancels his New Zealand dates due to pneumonia
Darren Bevan. 21:52, Feb 19th 2019

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer has cancelled his NZ dates, as well as his Australian and Japanese tour dates planned for next month.

Recently, he'd had to postpone his entire UK and European 'NO MORE TOURS 2' tour due to Doctors' orders arising from Osbourne's recent illness.

"Ozzy recently developed pneumonia and has spent some time in hospital. Thankfully he is now through the worst part," says Sharon Osbourne.

Ozzy Osbourne has been told to rest by his doctors after his recent illness, meaning the tour here is off.

"His doctors have advised that he stay at home to recuperate for a full six weeks with no travel."

Ticket holders for the Christchurch show at Horncastle Arena on Wednesday, March 13 are entitled to a full refund. Tickets purchased by credit or debit card will be refunded in full (including ticket insurance premium, if relevant) and patrons do not need to take any action.

Patrons should allow up to 10 working days for the refund to appear in their account, a statement said. Those who purchased tickets with cash or EFTPOS will be contacted via phone in the next 7 days to arrange for a full refund. Further refund enquiries should be directed to ticketek.co.nz.

Meanwhile the hell hole that is Auckland concert goers were told they were also eligible for a refund. "Those ticket holders who no longer wish to attend can arrange a refund by contacting Ticketmaster via: https://help.ticketmaster.co.nz/hc/en-nz, the organisers said.

A statement from the show's promoters wished Ozzy all the best in his recovery, but offered no hint as to whether the dates would be rescheduled later, as some other US dates have been.

"Promoters, Live Nation Australasia send all their love to Ozzy, Sharon and the wider Osbourne family and crew. We wish Ozzy all the best in his recovery and hope he is back to full health as soon as possible."

However, Judas Priest will still be playing the hell hole that is Auckland's Spark Arena on Saturday March 16, with special guests to be announced.

The show will now be ticketed as general admission standing and unreserved seating.

All tickets will now be $99.00.

If you've been to the Waters show, there is no need for attending anything else (maybe apart from King Crimson), don't worry...

Cheers DaveO' and Mr_G_G

The concert crew had the, to go or not to go meeting, there was a frank exchange of views, we put it to a vote, flipped a coin, or two and played several rounds of stone sack shears, that's rock paper scissors out in the world, we played a couple of hands of, we were a little drunk by that stage, I think it was gin rummy but, anyway no decision was reached.

A little later, during the infamous 2nd wind, after food and an extensive search I produced a video tape I had recorded in July 1985 of Live Aid at the JFK Stadium in Philadelphia, Judas Priest's hit and run performance of Living After Midnight, The Green Manalishi and Another Thing Comin'..... I moved for an immediate vote.....and we are hell hole bound baby!
team of three with one absconder.....

21 days, 5 hours and 41 minutes to lift off

that's 21 days, 5 hours and 41 minutes to work on the absconder.....no man* left behind.....

imho

Terrible show, Judas Priest flops!

Not their fault, nobody was in the mood.....or maybe it was just me.....

Excellent trip up the line, spectacular weather, stuck to the traditional route for a hour or so, then played a bit of gps roulette, which took us (party of four) far from the usual state highways, express ways and bypasses, and through some magnificent countryside with some at times quite challenging country roads, which I enjoyed immensely. The standard trip is around eightish hours, we made it in just under ten, including picnic and some minor pissing about eg left a service station whilst the bowser hose was still attached to the car! "clean up aisle two".....
Big bunch of Black Sabbath cds all the way up leading to some baaaaad sing-a-long moments, mercifully one man lost his voice completely.....

Due to our Black Sabbath bubble we didn't find out about the Christchurch shootings until we hit the hotel in the hell hole that is and will always be Auckland city.....We called in on the princess, who is Muslim but not devout, to give her a little moral support, she had five of her girl friends in attendance, all in all a diverse mixture of women (four nationalities, all with their own religion, aged from late thirties to late sixties). Team non believer (the lads & myself) spent the next eight exhausting hours delicately trying not to discuss religion or racism or offend anyone in anyway, with a CNN sound-track of the days horrific events in the back ground. After gallons of coffee and making peace in the middle east we parted on good terms and got back to the hotel absolutely shattered around two Saturday morning, all in all a long day for the old boys.....

Met up with the girls at midday in Aotea Square where folks were gathering to support the local Muslim community, spent an emotional hour or so shaking hands and hugging people.

In no mood for adventure, the trip back was a straight shot down state highway one, we were almost on for a record time, right up until we caught up with the Sunday traffic forty miles from the finish line.....
Pink Floyd from old to new (relatively speaking) all the way back....

Hit Wellington city and attended a gathering at the Basin Reserve, a huge number of folks had turned out, it was pretty organized, with various religious & political leaders addressing the crowd, then the singing started and it was all aboard the emotional roller coaster.....

got home late, crashed and burned.....work in eight hours.....

I saw The Police in their first club tour in Wisconsin. I could not have seen them in an arena as I had no car. Anyway, they played the entire first album. We called them back for an encore. For the encore they played the same album again! :mrgreen:

Thank you for posting info about Nick Mason tour :) . I knew of it, but wasn't planning on going. Figured it was the standard Dark Side through Wall material which all the endless Floyd tribute bands do. Knowing it's '67-'72 material I plan on hitting the Buffalo show @ Shea's on 4/11.

Grabbed my tik @ box office last week. $70 for lower/mid balcony. Last time I saw a show @ Shea's was Bowie - Reality tour '04. Psyched for this. Does a Syd Barrett hologram make an appearance? :)
