My Chemical Romance Confirmed As Final Band On Ozzfest 2007
Self-described rock/metal outfit My Chemical Romance have been confirmed as the final band for Ozzfest 2007, filling the last remaining slot on the main stage with Lordi, Lamb of God and Ozzy Osbourne himself.
My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way was optimistic and enthused about the announcement: “I’m excited to play to such a large crowd on tour this summer and I think the experience will help us get back to our metal roots. I wish we could have played the other year with Iron Maiden, who are a huge inspiration to us, and me personally, but I’m still psyched to be on Ozzfest!”
Shortly after the announcement, Nile frontman Karl Sanders had this to say: “Hell yeah! The prophecy shall be fulfilled. Now we will surely have loads of mall metal posers to lay waste to. That’s exactly what we wanted, although I don’t look forward to the prospect of hearing MCR’s whining on stage every night. We might have to lay waste to the band themselves.”
Rumor has it that My Chemical Romance’s addition to this year’s free Ozzfest was the idea of Jack Osbourne, who says he’s a big fan of the band.
The final Ozzfest 2007 billing now shapes up like this:
LAMB OF GOD
