Friday night Metallica in the round in the Royal Arena with a sick James and Kirk. James was so unwell I was amazed he finished the show.

Got up Saturday and flew to London then straight up to Birmingham for the last ever Black Sabbath show. Ozzy was on great form giving it his all. Sad to see them go, a part of my youth gone. A pain to shoot as it was being filmed and there were more tracks for cameras than the railways in Tokyo. Plus all they seemed to do was go back and forth like the Northern Line with no thought in what they were doing. My best photo of the night was Ozzy walking off at the very end. I finished the evening with a photo of Sabbath and Rival Sons together in a packed corridor at the NEC.

It really was the END.
