Book of Shadows II Tour. Missed Vika.
Zakk Wylde toured under his name with the musicians from his band Black Label Society.
Awesome concert in an awesome location (a church). The sound was a lot better than last week in Bilbao, more balanced.
This tour is great, I never thought I would ever hear songs from the album “Book of Shadows” live. The extended version of “Sold My Soul” with its outro solo is incredible (see video of Zakk Wylde playing this solo in the nave of the church here). He also went back into the public (back in the nave and the aisles) during the intro solo of “Throwin’ It All Away”.
A small trivia for myself: it was the 9th time I saw Zakk Wylde, but only the second time in a city where I’d already seen him before. I’ve seen Zakk Wylde in 8 different cities on 5 different countries and 3 different continents:
Hamburg, Germany, with Black Label Society (May 21, 1999)
Tokyo, Japan, with Black Label Society (May 17, 2005)
Los Angeles, CA, USA with Black Label Society (December 8, 2006)
Munich, Germany, with Black Label Society opening for Ozzy Osbourne and also playing guitar in Ozzy’s band (June 28, 2007)
Copenhagen, Denmark with Black Label Society (November 28, 2008)
Berlin, Germany with Black Label Society (March 12, 2011)
Leipzig, Germany with Black Label Society (June 7, 2012)
