Ozzy and Metallica to Headline a One-Off Ozzfest

May 13, 2008


Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Jonathan Davis of Korn, Sevendust, Hellyeah, Serj Tankian, and Shadows Fall will be some of the bigger names doin’ their heavy metal thang at this year's one-off Ozzfest, to be held Aug. 9 at Pizza Hut Park in Dallas. Nothin' says heavy metal like Pizza Hut Park!

Other headbangers on the bill are Cavalera Conspiracy, Apocalyptica, In This Moment and an all-star tribute to late Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. Second stage acts are Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. The Sword, Drowning Pool and Rigor Mortis will be rockin’ the third stage.

"We're going to be a stadium destination festival for now -- we have gone past doing the sheds every summer," says Ozzy's wife, Sharon Osbourne, who is producing Ozzfest. "We've given everyone else the blueprint and we have to keep evolving Ozzfest. This is just the beginning; AEG Live and I have a lot of new ideas for Ozzfest."

Ozzfest will be Ozzy Osbourne's only concert performance this summer. I just hope the dude can stand up straight for the duration of the show and pump out “Crazy Train” one more time.
