By the fifth song of last night’s show at the PNC Bank Arts Center by heavy-metal pioneers Black Sabbath, frontman Ozzy Osbourne was a sweaty, sopping mess, a result of the manic energy he brought to the band’s only area show.

So intense was Osbourne’s presence that to a point, it even overshadowed his inability to stay on key.

This year’s return of Black Sabbath has been a significant event, especially after a contract dispute that caused original drummer Bill Ward to bow out of the new album, “13,” and guitarist Tony Iommi’s cancer diagnosis during its recording.

All of this made the show a multilayered triumph that largely managed to overshadow Osbourne’s shortcomings. [NY Post]

The reunited Black Sabbath (whose lineup includes Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler) brought their current tour to NJ last night (8/4) for a way sold-out show at the PNC Bank Arts Center. The set was heavy on the band’s first four albums, and also included some cuts from their recently released reunion album, 13. Like all shows on this tour, Andrew WK began the night with a DJ set. Pictures from the night (but none of Andrew WK) are in this post.

There’s still one more chance to catch Sabbath in the NYC-area this week, when they play CT’s Mohegan Sun Arena on Thursday (8/8). Tickets for that show are still available.
