Ozzfest Is Dead, Long Live Trumpfest
Ozzfest is no more. At least not in past incarnations. Rumors abound that Sharon Osbourne, the favorite to win the latest season of Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice," is forging a deal with the multi-millionaire to save Ozzfest 2010 and beyond. Sources close to Obsbourne claim that she has been negotiating "a multi-year deal" with Trump to keep the travelling festival alive. While still featuring her husband, Ozzy, as the main headliner, the festival will likely be renamed "Trumpfest." Instead of securing corporate sponsors such as the ones that made 2008's "Freefest" possible, the festival will bear the Trump name much like ballparks and arenas have sponsors and bear their names.
Despite sponsoring the fest, Trump, who is reportedly "a fan of the 80's metal" (but not Bret Michaels or Poison), will buy a majority interest in the festival and take a percentage of the earnings of the festival for the next several years.
Sharon could not be reached for comment, but Ozzy, when contacted, had only this to say: "I dunno a bloody thing about it. Sharon handles all the business and festival stuff."
Nevertheless, more information including the
Ozzfest 2010 Trumpfest 2010 lineup and tour dates, is expected soon.
