Description: Ozzy Osbourne’s “BARK AT THE MOON” U.S. tour with Jake E. Lee on guitar is a professional shot performance Live at Salt Palace, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA on the 18th March 1984, which is known as one of the classic captured gigs of Ozzy inches entire solo career. It is a special release as it is using the full-length version from the original master directly!
Ozzy, who had completed his European tour following the announcement of the new LP “BARK AT THE MOON” by December 1983, had finally moved to the United States, and from January 1984 to June 1984 A large-scale North American tour was held.
Ozzy who skillfully used the rising popularity of heavy metal, such as the LA metal scene, as a tailwind, had won support from many fans over the Randy Rose era from and continues to the present day. This laid the foundation for Ozzy as the “Metal Emperor” I some circles.
From the beginning, “I Don’t Know”, where Pyro explodes and the opening begins where Ozzy appears magnificently from the large stairs provided as a stage set, and the live is a series of spectacular entertainment from the beginning (Ozzy between songs) Also pay attention to the staff who bring water to the armor figure! The video is a perfect multi-camera pro shot, and any fan will get lost in the this classic performance. In addition, the remastered sound quality makes the music entertaining with great listening!
Jake’s not only looks but also his guitar play and showmanship are here in full force. His vigorous performance and the explosion of flashy playing style around the stage enlivens the charm of a young guitar hero. “Rock ‘n’ Roll Rebel”, “Bark At The Moon” and “Centre of Eternity” from the then new album cut phrases as his guitar cuts, creating a great listening point for live performances. Of course, in Randy’s “Mr. Crowley”, “Revelation (Mother Earth)” and “Steal Away (The Night)”, Jake’s play brings a new life to songs.
The middle of the live “Suicide Solution” Jake’s guitar solo are missing in many releases of this concert that are on the market today but are definitely the biggest highlights of the concert. Jake’s keen play in a new world of heavy tunes can’t help but think, “Why was this cut in the first place?” The drums of Tommy Aldridge who returned to the band fit all the songs flawlessly. He also plays with Bob Dissley’s on bass (the solo with bare hands is of course the best).
The live peaks from beginning to end. “Flying High Again”, “Crazy Train”, and even BLACK SABBATH numbers “Iron Man” and “Paranoid” are played in a shouting cheer that shook the whole venue, overwhelming the audience!
This video, which recorded over 75 minutes of incandescent live performances with the highest quality professional shots, is definitely the definitive version of Ozzy’s ’84 video!If you’re a fan who wanted to see this live concert in perfect quality then don’t miss this historical time capsule!

Diary Note 1984 A.D.
“In the sanctuary of sanity there is a space where time and emotion laid a foundation on which I wanted to build monsters. In my haste on a hot summer night, amidst a full moon, near the moors of my country home, I wandered into a cemetery feeling helpless and overshadowed by an ominous presence. I knew Tara was at hand, I could not discern between reality and abstraction. The question of life and death became paramount. As its presence made itself known to me… It was as if an involuntary vision force itself within my own being. It was a first a nebulous conception, it’s imagine the imagery was exotic; but, it’s unreal charm soon turned itself into a chilling, funeral and depressing physical sensation. I found myself barking at the moon. Emotionally affected by the experiences within my life this soul-stirring sensation was leaving more than an impression on my mind. My body felt as if a transition was taking place. I was made motionless, possessed and hypnotize with my own metamorphosis. The irrational turned into the bizarre – and then into the monstrous…… And still there was the Moon.” – Ozzy Osbourne
