Concert Review: Black Sabbath & Megadeth in Bogotá, Colombia.

Date:  Saturday, October 19, 2013.

Venue: Parque Simon Bolivar

 

In Bogotá we witnessed a concert full of history and Metal figures. For this reunion tour of Black Sabbath, Megadeth was the band invited and responsible for opening the concert.

Megadeth with a short show, but incredibly show full of energy and riffs and guitar solos typical of Thrash Metal music, delighted everyone at the Simon Bolivar Park. Dave Mustaine, lead singer and guitarist of Megadeth after each performance said that the Colombia audience  is one of more louder crowds in the entire world and this is why this group of United States play their biggest hits like "Symphony of Destruction" and “Peace Cells ".

Then the legendary British group Black Sabbath shone on stage and started one of the best concerts in Colombian history. The show started with the "War Pigs" where the band shows their musical quality and one of the best sounds I've witnessed in the Simon Bolivar Park.
Each song of Black Sabbath is part of the creation of Heavy Metal. Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler with each note validates that they are the fathers of this genre. Tommy Clufetos, is an amazing session drummer for the tour, who took the show with an amazing drum solo.

Ozzy Osbourne on more than one occasion praised the public for their energy and singing along the  songs. On this tour, the set list is full of classics like "Iron Man", "Paranoid" and "Fairies Wear Boots" to name a few, but also with 3 Song's latest album "13".

Personally I think the concert was too unbelievable and that all attendees walked away happy and calm that they saw the most representative band of Heavy Metal in history with an amazing guest as Megadeth.


My friends and I with Megadeth in a restaurant in Bogota the day before the show.
