You guys had it coming. THANKS ALOT FOR LETTING US DOWN!!!! I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE PISSED OFF!!!!
So Ozzy being an artist from the UK has no right to tour Europe and play the festivals over there? He's fucked you over to play concerts where he is from? It definitely sucks that there is not an Ozzfest this summer but he never plays Europe in the summer so has he been fucking those fans over all these years? He'll be back for Ozzfest 2012 and hopefully you'll be able to enjoy an Ozzfest then. Ozzy did just do an entire US tour so everyone had the chance to see him this last year on his Scream tour.
It just does not make sence that he tells us that the reason for not doing OZZFEST is because he did a different tour. Why wouldn't he have skipped the regular tour and do the OZZFEST. OZZFEST is the bigger badder tour. Bring OZZFEST to Europe and make it a world tour... his only tour should be OZZFEST! I would go to an OZZFEST any time of the year and go miles and miles away because it is BADASS and I get to see a bunch of bands. Every year I brought a busload of people hundreds of miles to see this fest and experience this greatness. But his regular tour often doesn't come close enough and be a big enough event to me to be worth my while. Playing an OZZFEST makes it an experience that people love to go to for so many reasons and to me it seams like the ones in charge are not thinking of the opportunity they have to make OZZFEST outlive OZZY and carry on his name forever! He started something special that was a ritual for thousands of people at each venue and that ritual was OZZY and his fest! It brought so many people together to celebrate all that is metal! It was like Christmas for some... like church for others and OZZY was our pastor! Ozzy once said he hasn't made his "Sgt. Pepper" album... but he created a tour greater than any band has ever created and letting it die is wrong! Anytime OZZY hits the stage ANYWHERE it should be an OZZFEST and it should have been the longest running world tour with a new line-up each year, with enough regular breaks to keep him happy and enough dates to keep the fans happy and coming back for more! One year I cried for Ozzy and his wife real tears as I prayed for her recovery from cancer along with thousands of other fans at OZZFEST in Alpine Valley. I felt like we were all members of his family and wanted nothing more than for his family to get through it and really felt that we all helped him by being there that day. This was a real moment for so many people and we all loved Ozzy for coming out to play for us as his wife was kicking cancers ass and I really thought NOTHING would ever stop OZZFETS!
