Black Sabbath riot Milwaukee 1980

Registrazione sul campo dei disordini causati dal lancio di oggetti sul palco durante un concerto dei Black Sabbath a Milwaukee nel 1980. Geezer Butler fu colpito alla testa da una bottiglia di vetro e di conseguenza il concerto fu sospeso. Decine di persone furibonde furono arrestate e ci furono danni per oltre 10000 dollari.

Milwaukee, WI 10/9/1980 – One of the greatest audio testaments to a concert riot that exists. Just the third song into the show (Sabbath had already played War Pigs and Neon Knights), Dio gives the nod to Geezer to start N.I.B. All that happens is a thud… which is presumably Geezer hitting the floor after some jackass threw a bottle and hit him in the head. Dio turns on the lights and lectures the crowd a bit. Then the road manager and tour promoter come out and give a brief statement. Sabbath does not come back though, and the crowd gets pissed. Supposedly dozens were arrested and there was $10,000 damage to the arena. Funny thing was that the Milwaukee Bucks had a game the following night. Wonder how that worked out?–Lary-7-Black-Sabbath-Riot-Milwaukee-1980/release/186425
