Yes, Jakes debut was at an arena in Finland. A bootleg i actually own. I think it was probably Jakes worst nightmare and I am not lying when i say he laughed about how bad it was years after.

Firstly, the equipment malfunctioned just before they went onto stage which meant the first half of the song was played with just keyboards, bass and ozzy.
Secondly, because they were late to the gig, they had no time to check any of the equipment, set it up and Jake was simply told to go on stage without getting his guitar out to check it and it was miles out of tune.

In an interview I read he said something to the extent of "I walked off stage and said to ozzy.... ok, im out, right" and ozzy laughed and said no you have to do much worse for that to happen. I dont think Jake ever looked back and now we sit here today with a collection of great recordings and live shows!

i read some story about jakes guitar beeing out of tune on
that particular gig, and because of this, he had to bend the
strings to pitch :)
