    Went to the Ottawa Civic Centre last night to see the "Heaven and Hell tour", which comprised of Down (ex Pantera members), Megadeth and Black Sabbath w/ Ronnie James Dio.

    The show was awesome!

    I loved Down's material, I wasn't familiar with their tunes. Phil and crew looked in great shape! I'll definitely want to check out their albums.

    Megadeth were simply brilliant. This is my 3rd 'Deth show and the boys were on fire! Every guitar solo, every riff was bang on! Dave's voice was superb and their overall stage presence was magical.

    Best Megadeth show yet, too bad they only played 45 mins, but they weren't the headlining act.

    The Sabbath crew were equally great, but it took me a while to adjust to their slower tempo and almost psychedelic mood, especially after a high-energy act like Megadeth. Their stage set was mindblowing and the decor was superb.

    All in all, a fantastic show that was worth every dollar!

    I also managed to snap a few blurry pics. Too bad I was far, taking pics proved to be a real challenge.

    Megadeth:

    I love both Megadeth and Heaven and Hell aka black sabbath with dio, never was a big fan of Pantera or any of the members side projects though, glad the show was good.

    Dave looks like he still rocks out for a dude who would "never play again".

    Sounds like a quality show!

    I love Down and Megadeth, and I'm looking forward to seeing Heaven & Hell at Graspop festival in June.

    Do H&H play sabbath tunes?

    No Ozzy-era stuff, unfortunately. They played the two new tracks that'll be on their reunion album and the rest was all classic stuff from the Dio era.
