Sabbaths time on stage.
Black Sabbath, through out all there shows, have played different lenghts of
time. Sure, they have had a certain amount of short shows, but, have a
considerable amount of shows where the shows range from 90 mins to over 100
mins, if not longer.
But, some of you think, based on what you have stated, that for the most part
they play 45 min to 60 min sets, sure, they have played sets like that, but,
that's not common place for them.
You people need to do more research on Black Sabbath.

are plenty more like this.

Sabbaths time on stage.
Research? Hows this for research, ive seen them say, 15 times over a 24 year
period, including the holmdel, NJ show you list below at 85 mins, and they
even played scary dreams at that show, and they cut that from several shows
on that tour. And if my Drug and Alcohol induced memory serves me right, i
would say the average of all Sabbath shows i seen is about 80 minutes tops.
Shortest being the original Ozzfest without ward at Giants Stadium, about 45
minutes(Ozzy had played a full set with his Solo band before Sabbath came
on, so that was totally understandable), Longest Bein Cleveland in '99 that
one was maybe about 1 hr 40 mins, and thats bein generous.
So when Geezer says "60 to 80 mins" for ozzfest this year, thats all i would
expect. If and when they come out with new material and tour on thier own,
maybe we will see a 1:30 to 1:40 show, but don't hold your breath. Actually,
if i remember correctly the Headless Cross show i seen in NYC was pretty
long too, and that was DEFINATELY the loudest, as Tony and Co. were playin
in nothing more than a big club by then, and i even caught one of Tony's
picks (Black with white "Tony Iommi" signature lettering, Heavy thickness),
which my stupid ass Ex -Girlfreind lost. Dumb Bitch.
