I only wish BLS opened mainstage, cause i don't care for them, but want to see Rob Zombie and In Flames and now they'll most likely overlap each other. At least In Flames will have a longer set, so I'll probably see more of them than if they were rotating anyway. Oh well, you can't have it all I guess.

in flames sounds good, but i don't know about VR. I hate to see them get bood at a Metal show before Black Sabbath hits the stage. Other than that the whole tour kicks ass! Can't wait for Ozzfest!

They shoulda been scheduled to be on main stage anyways. They are better than pretty much every other band playing Ozzfest. But they do have a lot of good ones this year. I'll give them that.

meh it;s supposed to be ozzfest's 10th year there should be many other good bands but it's cool that In flames moved up to main stage now if they only play some old stuff like from jester race it would be a bad a$$ show....

feh.....Velvet Revolver probably won't get booed...often....so many ozzfest goers are radio listeners so they'll get a luke warm welcome i think...
depends i guess.....
they'll prolly play their asses off and stick to the heavier (if u can call it that) material to keep the crowd pleased....
while im not a big VR fan I like the histories and personas of the guys in the band. Maybe next album they'll gel a bit and put something out that has the heavy guitar crunch of STP and the viciousness of Guns.....possible but not likely.

Poo you are a complete fool!!! To say that Iron Maiden, one of the greatest metal bands ever sucks is worse than killing the pope! Iron maiden kicks the crap out of spellbound, and makes most other bands look like crap!

To answer that dudes question about A Dozen Furies....they are awesome!! I've seen them play in dallas a few times.....i think they deserve it...they get to represent Dallas so it's all good!

Ok well I have not a clue which stage to go to because i'd like to see bands on both stages. It sucks! Choices Choices
