In February 1971, about the time this video was shot, I went to an OzMan and Black Sabbath concert. It was in the newly completed Winnipeg Centennial Concert Hall that was acoustically designed for performances by our ballet company and symphony. You could hear a pin drop from the stage anywhere in the venue.
Imagine these guys coming in with a stage full of amplfiers & speakers and literally blowing the roof off the place.
I don’t think they ever had a similar concert since. Plus my ears are still ringing.
