MY FIRST CONCERT!!!!
The opening act was JOHNNY VAN ZANT BAND, followed by RIOT, then BLACK SABBATH, closing out the show.
"War Pigs" was the opening song. The band had Ronnie James Dio at the helm in support of "Heaven and Hell".
Blinded by the light
My friend and I were on the wall when Sabbath hit the stage and all I remember is a bright flash and a loud boom when they opened with "War Pigs". I don't remember Johnny Van Zant but I think we got to the show after it started as I just remember the band Riot opening. Vinny Appice was on drums as Bill Ward was having issues and the band booted him off the tour.
I never got to see Sabbath with Ozzy but I loved the H&H album and Dio with Sabbath was incredible.
I posted the best pictures I have from this concert. There are also pics of "Riot" if you click on their link next to opening acts.
