Sabbra Cadabra

Sabbra Cadabra appearing at this event

Sabbra Cadabra is the closest thing you can get to an early 1970s Black Sabbath show without going back in time! The group features Neil Priddey on lead guitar as ‘Tony’, Pete Hagan on bass as ‘Geezer’, Matt Bates on drums as ‘Bill’ and of course, starring as ‘Ozzy’ is vocalist Kevin McGillian. The Sabbra Cadabra show is a very faithful reproduction of early Sabbath material, featuring absolute classics from the first 8 albums with the original line-up between 1970 and 1978. The attention to detail with performing and attempting to look like the Godfathers of Heavy Metal is simply superb.
