Right on...I can practically see the stadium from my office window, and I'll be there bright and early Saturday. I wish Serj and JDavis were staying home though.

Wow, Metallica pushed Ozzy to direct support at his own event?! Wtf? Only way I'd be ok with this is if the Dime tribute was headlining...but it's not....

...sigh...I'd love to go to this. Not from Ohio, though. I don't want to see the Sword AND Metallica THAT bad.

Oh wait, yeah I do.

In response to post 7, you are a douche. Of all the good bands doing it this year, including Rigor Mortis, the band that you say is good is KOS. Jamey Jasta and everything that poser does is sh**. And by the way, both The Sword and Witchcraft are great. Shadows Fall are garbage as well.

I think this is a good line up...aside from Serj and Jon davis.

Sevendust is one of the best live bands ive seen
Soilent Green would be cool, never seen em play live
Hellyeah is ok
Cavalera has been playing sepultura songs at their shows
Ghoatwhore is pretty good
Devildriver can get repetitive but have some good stuff
Ozzy will put on a good show
Metallica, i bet 3/4 of their set will be great

Did Johnathan Davis go solo or something?

I can't believe Metallica is headlining and not Ozzy. It's called Ozzfest for a reason, or so I thought.

Wow such hostility out of #9. I was merely making a point of the fact that you have piss poor taste in music. What I thought was funny was you mentioned my prepubescent pimply ass. That would have been right over 25 years ago, but alas, I'm old enough to be your dad. And still listening to REAL metal. Douche.

Harsh words panzram....I'm probably younger than you and I like Metallica, but alot of older people still like 'em too. Got nothin' against ya though, just my opinion. I hope whoever goes to Ozzfest can tell us if it was any good.
