Well, you know how I felt about the previous free Ozzfest tickets mess, but who am I to withhold an opportunity for someone else to go? Yes, I'm passing on the Devore show for the first time in 10 years. I've been put off about how this whole free ticket thing has been handled and don't feel like dealing with a bunch of impatient fans trying to get in the venue and getting angry when they discover they have to have a ticket for the "free" event and there aren't any tickets left. You'll find me at the Body Art Expo at the Fairplex in Pomona www.bodyartexpo.com If you want a second chance for Ozzfest, here's the info - you can find out more at www.ozzfest.com ~M
The first few dates of this year’s groundbreaking OZZFEST have been an amazing success and tour promoters Live Nation have announced today that after seeing the production in place, they have found that they can make additional tickets available for the 21 remaining concerts. This enables fans a second chance to secure free tickets to see the summer’s premiere touring festival.
The newly released tickets will be available at FYE stores & venue box offices until they have all been claimed. Check www.Ozzfest.com, www.Livenation.com and www.FYE.com websites for locations and business hours.
Fans looking for tickets to the Southern California date—happening this Saturday, July 21st at Hyundai Pavilion-- can also get tickets at the venue box office starting at 11:00 AM day-of-show (while supplies last). Please note that the venue parking lots won’t open until 8:00 AM the morning of the event.
Because of the extraordinary reaction to this historic, first-ever “Free Fest,” fans are encouraged to get on the road early. Patrons will want to be sure to have enough time to enjoy all of the great bands as well as indulge in Ozzfest’s infamous “Village of the Damned,” a carnival of tattoo artists, piercing booths and other vendors.
Since 1996, OZZFEST has been a virtual breeding ground for rising bands. The festival has been instrumental in igniting the careers of platinum-selling artists like System of a Down, Disturbed, Linkin Park, Incubus, Slipknot, Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold, Mudvayne, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage and Lacuna Coil, among others. It was cited as “one of rock’s biggest juggernauts” in the cover feature of Sunday's New York Times' “Arts and Leisure” section (6/25/06). This year marks the 12th anniversary of the hard rock spectacular.
The 24-city earth-pounding 12th annual OZZFEST kicked off July 12 in Seattle, WA at the White River Amphitheatre. The Seattle Times wrote in their review “The music on the two stages at Ozzfest…is the kind that makes you feel like your insides are vibrating. But in a good way” (7/13/07).
