Black Sabbath: Chaos seeds. Miwaukee Arena Stardate, Milwaukee, USA. 09.10.80

 

Description

 

Here is the description of the taper about that night that is much better than mine could be:

 

Here is the best documentary ever to come out of a concert/riot show.
Geezer Butler gets hit with something that cuts his eye and the band
walks off after two songs and the crowd is told to go home. Then 10,000
people groan...hiss...and boooooooo! Part of the problem was nobody really
new what had happened. One chair was knocked over in discuss. Then two chairs
was knocked over. Then four, sixteen, what is sixteen to the second power?
Hand rails were ripped out from the balcony. The back support for the fixed
chairs in the balcony were
busted in half. All the while I am recording all
this mayhem. I even interviewed the nuts while they were braking stuff. The
security team all surrounded the mixing console while this was taking place.
I am now in the balcony watching and recording. All the fold up chairs on
the main floor was made of wood. By now, there was at least 100 of these
chairs all in a HUGE pile in the middle of the main floor. I then see one guy
with a BIC lighter trying to light this huge wooden chair pile. Classic.
He never could get it going. He needed lighter fluid. Police sirens and
all the sounds of a riot right here. Every piece of window and door glass
was broken. Over $10,000.00 in damage. My buddy was told to leave by
police but then went back in and promptly was arrested. He said that police
station was over flowing with arrestees and reporters. It took 12 years for Sabbath
to come back. The Milwaukee Bucks I believe had a game the next day.
