The reunited Black Sabbath (well, almost) performed at Lollapalooza on Aug. 3 in Chicago, and now a number of fan-filmed videos (branded by Jason Jude) have gone online at YouTube to mark the occasion.
Chicago is the center of the music universe this week, at least where U.S. music fans are concerned, as Lollapalooza gets its annual spotlight. While they weren't part of the actual Lollapalooza lineup, Jane's Addiction did make an appearance in Chicago Saturday night.
It was a long day for Lollapalooza festivalgoers Saturday (Aug. 4) after being evacuated due to major thunderstorms, but once they were allowed to return for the rest of the day of music performances they were rewarded with a late night Red Hot Chili Peppers headlining set.
It's the moment many U.S. fans have been anxiously awaiting since Black Sabbath announced their reunion plans with Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, and the group's Lollapalooza performance was definitely a triumph.
As we reported a couple of days ago, Black Sabbath has indeed been confirmed as one of the headliner's for this year's Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, Ill. The three-day event runs from Aug. 3 to 5; it has not been announced which night Sabbath will perform.
California-based indie pop band Foster the People put their own unique (and sweaty) spin on Neil Young's 'Heart of Gold' this weekend in Chicago, giving the classic song a sweet and unexpected indie pop sheen when they performed it live as part of their Lollapalooza set.
