Wow, with a lineup like that, they are really making a run at Ozzfest's market this year. I wonder how Ozzfest will change to adapt or how long it will be around.

Yeah, much like the Ozzfests of late, I'd much rather see the second stage bands and don't really care for the main stage acts much.

Rumor is Ozzfest is a limited run this year. Ozzfest might be at its end, unless it can pull out some extreme metal acts in replacement of the popular ones going to the Rockstar tour.

Damn, Ozzfest has a lot of work to do. I love the lineup. I dont think that Ozzfest will top this. I hope I can make it to the Chicago stop.

Well Ozzfest was really a limited run last year compared to previous years... They skipped a number of cities including DC and all of Canada.

Well roumor has it that Jack Osburne is doing the booking for Ozzfest. If so it would help if he pulled his head out of his arse and did better bands. Ozzfest started out great, but since Jack started picking the bands went down hill pretty fast.

Damn, to me this sounds like a damn good tour. f*** Ozzfest, I'm going to this one. If there is going to be a Family Values Tour again, which I really doubt, they sure as hell can't top this. Hell, this is even better than Jagermeister's music tours.

Sevendust, Machine Head, Five Finger Death Punch, and The Red Chord are enough for me to go.
Slipknot puts on an alright stage show.

Went to the Hellyeah show in Mokena, IL on Friday. Machine Head only played 6 songs but they were no doubt the best band on the bill....Imperium, Now I Lay Thee Down, Old, Aesthetics of Hate, Halo, Davidian.

I have to agree with Post 16 and 24 - Machine Head blew me away...they are heavy as hell, and put on a powerful show....quite possibly one of the [best live shows] I have ever seen.
