    Default Ozzfest 2008

    Anyone going?
    Dallas, TX - Two of the most colossal names in rock n' roll—Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne--are joining forces Saturday, August 9th, 2008, for a one-day stadium spectacular, OZZFest at Pizza Hut Park in Dallas, TX. Worldwide superstars Metallica have chosen this next chapter in the evolution of OZZFest. Metallica's OZZFest debut represents one of the few shows the band will be playing in North America this year. “I am absolutely honored that Metallica is performing on OZZFest,” says Ozzy Osbourne.

    Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said of this year’s Ozzfest, “In 1986 Ozzy gave us our first break by taking us out on tour here in America, so whenever we get the call to play or hang together, of course our response is ‘f*ck yeah… just tell us when and where and we’ll be there.’ We’re psyched about our first Ozzfest experience and looking forward to hanging with all our metal buddies on what surely will be a great f*cking day in Dallas.”

    Ozzy Osbourne himself will be making his only U.S. concert appearance through the end of 2008 at the wildly popular event which bears his name, marking the transformation of the pioneering festival he founded into a one-day extravaganza spanning three stages of top metal and hard rock acts. This year's OZZFest in Pizza Hut Park in the hard music-loving state of Texas will feature three stages of non-stop talent and reliably twisted OZZFest side attractions.


    The OZZFest 2008 bill will also feature some of the hardest rocking bands--many of whom have been a part of the OZZFest family and who will return to the OZZFest stage in support of a festival which has opened the door for so many of today's hard rock and metal bands. The full main stage lineup will spotlight performances by Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Hellyeah, Jonathan Davis (Korn), Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica and In This Moment. Also scheduled on the main stage is a special all-star tribute to fallen Pantera guitarist and Texas native "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. Second stage acts include Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. The third Texas stage--"an homage to the many great metal bands that come from Texas," says Sharon Osbourne--will feature The Sword, Drowning Pool and Rigor Mortis.

    This year's dynamic line-up encompasses artists who've played OZZFest before in different incarnations such as Serj Tankian (System of a Down); Robert Trujillo (Ozzy and now with Metallica), Jonathan Davis (Korn); Hellyeah's Vinnie Paul (Pantera) and Chad Gray (Mudvayne); Kingdom of Sorrow's Jamie Jasta (Hatebreed) and Kirk Windstein (Down); and Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Sepultura) of Cavalara Conspiracy. Other OZZFest graduates include Shadows Fall, Sevendust, Devildriver, Drowning Pool and In This Moment.


    Got my tickets and room reserved already.

    Default Ozzfest 2009 - RIP

    Ozzy Osbourne's 2009 festival cancelled

    With the news of Miami's Langerado Festival closing its doors due to "sluggish ticket sales," it was only a matter of time before another event followed suit. But Ozzy isn't blaming the dismal economy. The Black Sabbath mainman is taking a year off to finish his 10th studio album, the follow-up to 2007's Black Rain.

    In 2007 the festival became a free event which relied solely on sponsorship deals to make a profit. And in 2008 the heavy metal line-up was crammed into one solitary day.

    Regardless, a statement claims Ozzfest will return in 2010.
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton

    Yeah just saw this.... at least the last one I saw was one to remember for sure! The best one yet actually. Ozzy does deserve a break. He rocked this past summer. He will be missed though... we have gone 3 yrs in a row!

    Ozzy's coming out with a new album this Fall reports say. He's beginning the writing process now, I believe.

    Can Ozzy still really perform?

    I've never seen him live, but after watching him on the tube and seeing the way he shuffles around and mumbles, it's hard to imagine him being much live.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    OMG yes! He does a great job! I have seen him 3 yrs in a row.. the first time I was leary. But that man puts on a kick ass show! He looks so happy to be out there. Last year at Ozzfest.. he was on right before Metallica. He played way past his time scheduled and said to the crowd.. you want more? Of course everyone was like Yeah... and he was what the fuck this is fuckin ozzfest! I am Ozz and can do what I want and played on! The man is awesome! Great energy for an old guy... I never expected it!
