A cautionary note about buying OZZFEST tickets:

When purchasing tickets from outside sources (like Ebay) for this year’s OZZFEST, please be aware that there is no guarantee that those tickets are legitimate and will gain you entry to OZZFEST. Unfortunately, there are instances where people are just looking to make a quick buck and may do any of the following (either innocently or deliberately):

There is no guarantee the seller is not selling multiple copies of the same tickets or may have innocently revealed their barcode online for others to copy. Only the person who first presents the ticket barcode will get through the doors. All others using the same barcode will be denied.

So please be careful when purchasing tickets and try not to let this happen to you.

Anyone interested in trading some live shows of Ozzy and Sabbath? I have tons of cds and dvds and I have no one to trade with. If you have a list just send it to my email ozzygeezer02@yahoo.com or if you want to check out what I have just go to http://www.hometown.aol.com/ozzygeezer02/index.html for my complete list. Remember these are live shows for trade, not for sale. If you do not have a list of live shows to trade I can always do a 2 for 1 where you send me two discs for every one you want. I have lots of awesome shows I know other people and fans want so lets get busy!

Codes do not guarantee TICKETS.
and trust me they dont, with the appointed time you can start redemming your tickets for the area you would like to attend they are pretty much gone, my time was 3pm for Philly , no available seats, so i tried New Jersey, same thing, even tried ( didnt like the idea of driving so far with such high gas prices but i tried ) Pittsburge, no seats available and i started at 3pm as my code instructed and was still trying till finaly 1 am all 3 places where a def , sold out. but yet seems people who had multiple email addies to use( greedy a**holes they are ) got their tickets and are now in Ebay selling them. WTF ? I knew as many of you ( hopefully all of you ) knew that having a code did not guarantee getting tickets. Im a bit pissed off about this , selling something you got for nothing.

So make sure you take the advice here in this section (not just mine) and dont be a fool and buy a ticket someone got for nothing.

Im not pissed I cant go this year cause it was a 50/50 chance I took knowing I might not ever get to see or attend Ozz Fest in my lifetime, kinda like buying that lottery ticket to win millions and you win zero, but sure would of been nice to sit back and say honestly,, yes I did attend OzzFest at 38 years old and it was my 1st and only concert type I ever attended. Maybe next year OzzFest will be back to Selling tickets to get in so people like me who have their heart set on going can actualy goand make it their fisrt ever. This is no BS I have never been to ANY concert in my life and only wanted OzzFest but I took that chance and lost.

Dont buy Tickets off Ebay from people who got the tickets for nothing and are trying to rip you off, be a shame to have all those people looking at you as your DENIED entry because you was a fool and bought a free ticket.

P.S. out of curiosity i looked at ebay to see if any was selling. http://search.ebay.com/ozz-fest_W0QQ_trksidZm37QQfromZR40 maybe Ozz and Sharron can do something about this by gettingin touch with ebay and reporting this and stoppin these people from selling free tickets.

AFTER PURCHASING THE CD 2 WEEKS EARLY AFTER WAITING 6 YRS AND NOT GETTING MY TICKETS FOR OZZFEST......LET ME TELL YOU AS A 30 YR OZZY FAN WHO HAS SEEN IT ALL...... YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD BE NICE... WOULD BE A NIGHT WITH THE OZZY OSBOURNE BAND WITHOUT ALL THE CRAP....MAYBE A TOUR OF ALL THE SMALL VENUES AROUND THE COUNTRY TO APPEASE THE DIE HARDS LIKE ME WHO WOULD NOT MIND PAYING WHATEVER IT WAS WE HAD TO PAY TO HAVE AN EVENING OF THE OZZMANS MUSIC THE WAY WE DID BACK IN THE OLD DAYS (80'S)

WHAT A CONCEPT......

ENOUGH OF THESE f*** THE FAN FESTIVALS

do you remember in 1969,woodstock wouldnt work either and it worked itself out. Why cant this work too???

How about VOIDING ALL of the PROMOTIONAL TICKETS! And putting all OZZfest tickets on sale through the traditional method!

Ozzy,as a fan of over thirty years, I'd buy your albums without listining to ANY critic because your lyrics are an extension of yourself and REAL. A true artist. But using this GIMMICK in order to sell your new album to the younger generation in their hopes of getting cheap ozfest tickets and "up sales" more than sucked. Sure, I also tried to see if I could "redeem" two tickets UNSUCCESSFULLY. But, I would have gladly paid a fortune for two tickets so that I could bring my fifteen year old son to see a real living legend but that is no longer an option due to the high demand. How about just raising the price and limiting sales to the customers. Both, the album and tickets will sellout, and more importantly, you will NOT tarnish your reputation. My son was in tears when I told him that he wouldn't be able to see the man who was more important than my father while I was growing up.

Black Rain is a great cd!!! A code for free tickets was a good idea. Too bad it did not work for me. I used the code for Wisconsin date and got California tickets instead! Close but no cigar. And to rub it in, they were lawn seats too. I would expect better for my presale code. After several e-mails, my California tickets were canceled and my code was re-instated. Big Mistake! By this time the presale was over, the general tickets were gone, and I ended up with no tickets at all! Livenation screwed me big time and I did'nt even get a kiss.

--i think they should check the name on the ticket with your drivers license to avoid all these scams.
i know some people got tickets for there friends etc. i know i legitimately got my code from purchasing the black rain cd and purchased my free tickets june 8th. i'm still paranoid and worried i'll get to ozzfest and not be let in because of some scam. i printed my tickets from myhome pc but who knows if anyone could get the tickets codes i printed at home. maybe they should of sent us all real tickets instead of these copies we had to print ourselves. that might of helped us be sure we got legit tickets to ozzfest.
as far as the ebayers and other people selling the "free" tickets they should be stopped. it says right on the tickets not to be sold or transfered etc. i thought ozzy and sharon contacted ebay about stopping the sale of the free ozz fest tickets but that might or might not be a rumour.
for those so desparate for tickets to ozzfest that they pay ebayers and other scalpers money for there tickets i wouldnt quarentee getting in. anyone could make 10 copies of there tickets and pass them out to 10 people. first come first serve! i just hope i get in since i got my tickets using the code from the black rain cd i did buy !!!!
good luck to everyone and enjoy the show!

When I found out that the 'ozzfeast' was going to be FREE this year, i was so excited!! went to the ozzfeast.com, got my code for my 2 FREE TICKETS, and had to wait for over a month (seemed like forever) for june 12th to finally arrive, in the mean time i did go to our local head shop and purchased the new 'ozzy' CD, and it is great, he is great, love the disc!! and i did notice that you could get 'reserved seating' for the 'ozzfeast' when you purchased the disc. but i figured i had already gone to the website and used my e-mail address for my code to (hopefully) receive the two tickets, that would put me where i wanted to be on july 21st, 2007!!! and i didn't want to be accused of trying to get more than my share and then f***ed out of both general admission and the reserved area. SO june 12 finally arrived, i had to leave work, go to my sisters (she lives nearest my job site) to use her computer, go try to get MY beloved tickets to see the 'OZZ', and friends of course!! yep i went to the livenation site, put in the information, and then it was all about being IN LINE while ON LINE, lol, but hey it would be worth it no matter how long the wait, right? After 2 hours, i said to myself, i said 'self, s*** i have to get back to work, and i hopeing that the livenation site will automatically zing me my two precious ticket, then i can just download them when i get home from work, right? NOT RIGHT, my sisters boyfriend came home from work, he was aware of what i had been trying to accomplish, and he called me at work to let me know, 'hey donna, there was an error in your attempt, and the web page expired' , so he tried a 2nd and a 3rd, s*** even a 4th time for me so i could go see Ozzy, YEAH, right? i even figured a way to get off from work 1 1/2 hours early to go back to my sisters and ' GET MY TICKETS!!!' right? s*** NO, i don't understand what the hell went wrong, but i could not get past the 'IN LINE ON LINE' stage of attempting to get MY TICKETS!!!!!! i got so frustrated, read and re-read the damn instructions, tried again and again, and every attempt was that much later in the day, on THE day they were going up for grabs!! and i know that there was NO gaurantee of any kind that just because you have a code ( a code you may have gotten over a month in advance in anticipation of being able to go see 'OZZY') you will get your issue of 2 tickets! but s***, i couldn't even get to the point of what we could call 'the front of the line, on line!!' i was continually in 'the end of the line on line'. SO, my whole point here is, i feel like i got ripped off, in a sense. because i was on my sisters computer by 10:04 am on the 12th of june 2007, with my secret code in hand, and there were still tickets available, for the 21st of july, 2007!! BUT I WAS JUST OUT OF REACH, with no explanation of why they STAYED just out of my grasp!! i AM BUMBED OUT AND DISAPPOINTED, AND i just wanted to vent, in hopes that it would make me feel a little better about NOT being able to go see the jam!! THANKS, for hearing me out!! . . . . bummer is i still don't feel any better :-( thanks again, donna, or better known as 'SKIP!!'

Can't all the people selling tickets get in deep crap considering they say not for resale? I say everyone who sold them should pay a fine and be denied access. Do they not know there name is on the ticket? Unless they put a fake name but they also have to enter an e-mail...so hopefully all of those jerks who are breaking the law and stealing will get caught....dumbasses!!!!! What goes around comes around in the Rock world...thought you knew.
