METALLICA JOINS OZZFEST FOR A ONE-DAY STADIUM SPECTACULAR

Cutting-Edge Acts and OZZFest Alumni to Ignite Three Stages at Pizza Hut Park

Dallas, TX (May 20, 2008) - 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.

“AEG is proud to work with Sharon Osbourne in bringing Metallica and Ozzfest together, making Dallas the capital of rock on August 9,” said Randy Phillips, President & CEO, AEG Live. “And it’s a testament to Ozzy, after 13 successful years of creating one of the truly great brands in hard rock, Ozzfest has attracted Metallica to close what will become a truly iconic day.”

More than 13 years after Ozzy Osbourne started OZZFest, it remains the defining blueprint for hard rock tours and festivals that have come along since. OZZFest is now evolving into a bigger and better stadium destination festival with headliners Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne leading the way.

Tickets for this year's OZZFest will go on sale Saturday, May 31. For up-to-the-minute details, go to www.Ozzfest.com. This year's OZZFest sponsors include Jägermeister, Monster Energy Drink, ESP Guitars and title sponsor Affliction Clothing.

I want the Ozzfest to be in malmö,sweden or copenhagen

I also went to the Ozzfest in Chicago and it was really nice! We waited in line since 7 in the morning and when it got to be 11 they let usd in. I was glad once I was inside because I could talk to people and get water and go to the bathroom but when we got to the front the sun was beating on us hard. My friend didn't have anymore water but I bought some from the bouncers. Then I asked if I could see Ozzy but they wouldn't let me. I wished I could have met Ozzy. It would have been nice to see him and talk to him, and ask him how his day was. The crowd got swept away in pushing and pretty soon I had to be hauled over the fence. It took 3 people because I am so big. God Bless You Ozzy You are the best

OMG Ozzy. I am anxiously waiting your return to the US. One time I was friends with this dog -- I used to fool around over by stone park and this dog was behind a fence and everytime I had hot dogs or a treat or even if i didn't have anything at all i would still go sit and talk to him. As the years went by, he grew older and he wasn't a puppy anymore. His name was Capone, as it said on his doghouse. The owners never saw me they were inside and sometimes it would be cold out and he's still be outside and he had a real thin coat. Anyway, I would sit and talk to him and ask him to be my friend, and I would pet him through the chain link fence. When I was gone, he would anxiously await my return. Then one day he wasn't there anymore. I guess something happenned to him. Maybe he died. Owners got a new dog. But I miss him. I have a new dog now too! But may I be like your dog, awaiting and anticipating, Love, Your Dog in the US

Perhaps this has something to do with this years Ozzfest location and date:

Yes I would definitely go if it was closer to me, & Rose you are 100% correct I am not happy about it being in Texas.

I still don't get why the Osbourne camp choose that place to have a show, and didn't go with the Midwest, that way it was a fair distance for almost everyone to go see, minus of course mid westerners. But still even with all that said, I would love to see the show, if for no other reason than to see KOS & Cavelera Conspiracy, this line up is incredible this year, just breaks my old metal heart that it is out of reach, that I will miss such an f***in line up!!!

! In all honesty folks if funds allowed I would go see this show in the depths of Hades, it being in Bush country or not I would be there, outlaw is very correct in his assumption.....

An even though I am not the metallica fan that I once was, I wouldn't mind seeing the f***ers, its been a long while since I seen them live, it would be great to hear all them old songs live again...
