Not even Sevendust and Metallica on the same bill (again, they have played together before) will be able to get me to go all the way too Dalas. I dont know if they are gonna pick a different city every year but this is a sh**ty way to give metal fans something to look forward to this summer. Thanks Sharon, next time, just let Ozzy retire.

havent posted anything in a while here,
this is by far teh worst lineup of Ozzest i have ever seen in my life...
in this moment is sh**ty, KoRn sucks so Johnathan Davis will just be even more terrible of an act
Serj sounds just like SOAD so thats nothing new at all...these bands are all mediocre nothing truely stands out as being amazing of phenomenal at all....dissapointing indeed, the metal masters tour and the rockstar mayhem tours are better than this BS. seriously sh**ty to the sh**ttiest sh** times infinity....

If any of you go, make sure you see The Sword. Don't judge them by their albums...they kill live. And make sure you have plenty of hair to headbang with.

Fxck yeah! The Sword owns. What do you mean "don't judge them by their albums"? Their albums are flawless. I can't imagine what they're like live.

SUCKS!!! WORST OZZFEST LINEUP Apocalyptica, don't know, aren't they mostly cello? Devildriver, don't know again if these guys are any good, Drowning Pool, i like the early stuff, don't know about the new, Goatwhore, ok were getting better, HellYeah, Vin deserves respect, In This Moment, suck me off emo fags Kingdom of Sorrow never heard of them, Korn Sucks d***, Metallica, like their early stuff, after the Black Album they sucked Ozzy Osbourne, always a classic, Rigor Mortis, I always get mixed up witrh this band since I know a band with a similar name, Serj Tankian, like some SOAD but not sure about the vocalist going solo, Sevendust like some of them, I don't hear any of their old stuff though,Shadows Fall is decent, Soilent Green hear of them, but never checked them out, The Cavalera Conspiracy, are they refering to Max, The Destro, The Sword, Witchcraft, Within Chaos, now these guys I don't know, except The Sword which I can't determine yet, probably never heard the right song yet, but this lineup sucks so you're better off seeing something else than this cr*p, anyway

Id go for apocalyptica, soilent green, goatwhore and sadly I admit i would like to see metallica since ive never seen them before and it seems like kind of a Mecca thing for a metalhead to see them once before death. Ive seen the rest but Dallas is too far away
