rocked Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island on Thursday 29th of May 2014

The Legendary Ozzy Osbourne at Du Arena I arrived at the venue at 6:30 pm, waiting for the press booth to open so I can collect my press pass. Meanwhile, I handed the winners of the “Do You Really Know Black Sabbath?” competition organized by our online team the tickets they won. Then I took my passes that were unexpectedly late to be ready, and headed toward the stage area. As I entered the arena, thousands of Rock & Metal fans and musicians from all over the region came to witness the band performing for the first time ever in the Middle East. The place was packed and everyone waited for the concert to start in an extremely hot and humid weather. Anuryzm, the progressive metal band based in Dubai, opened the show around 8:40 pm. We have already

seen the band performing at Byblos festival, opening for Nightwish, and it was clear that the guys were overwhelmed on the stage. They did an amazing performance playing songs from their debut album “Worm’s Eye View” and some new

tracks as well, giving the audience a live proof why they were chosen to open for such a legendary band.
