The line-up for the first ever Ozzfest Japan - set for Saturday, May 11th and Sunday, May 12th, 2013 at the Makuhari Messe arena just outside of Tokyo - has now expanded with Tool, Slash, Deftones, and Stone Sour joining previously announced headliners Black Sabbath and Slipknot.

“We’ve assembled an amazing lineup for the first ever Ozzfest Japan. Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Tool, Slash, what more could you ask for?” says Sharon Osbourne “And we still have plenty of surprises to come. The Ozzfest Japan line-up will rival any of our previous festivals.”

“It took a long time for Ozzfest to come to Japan but I know the fans here are going to feel it was worth the wait,” Massy Hayashi of Hayashi International Promotions says. “Of course, any time you have living legends like Black Sabbath on stage you know it is going to be a memorable event.” Last year, Hayashi International Promotions produced the sold-out one-day punk rock festival Air Jam at Yokohama Stadium.

Tickets pre-reservation started on November 25th and ticket prices are as follows: single-day tickets are JPY 14,000, weekend passes are JPY 27,000, and weekend passes including an official festival t-shirt are JPY 30,000. All prices include consumption tax, box office commission, and ticket printing fees. The latest information on Ozzfest can be found at this location.
