OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST…the ultimate meeting of metal minds…a double-header music and lifestyle weekend like no other on the planet.

This merger of two of the most well-known and established brands in rock--OZZFEST, celebrating its 20th anniversary, and KNOTFEST, which debuted in 2012--is set for Saturday, September 24 (OZZFEST) and Sunday, September 25 (KNOTFEST) at San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, CA. Tickets for the Live Nation-produced OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST--a multi-stage, two-day weekend camping event with more than 40 acts--go on sale Friday, May 20 at 10:00 AM (PT) at OZZFEST.COM and KNOTFEST.COM.  All the details and line-ups (below) were revealed at a major press conference today (Thursday, May 12) at the Palladium in Hollywood, CA.

Saturday’s OZZFEST will be headlined by Black Sabbath--marking their last Southern California performance as part of the band’s final tour--and Sunday’s KNOTFEST bill is topped by the festival’s namesake, Slipknot. On hand at the press conference were OZZFEST founder Ozzy Osbourne and Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and M. Shawn Crahan (aka Clown). The event began with a movie screening, followed by a Q&A session with artists from the OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST bill and concluded with a performance from Zakk Sabbath, led by Zakk Wylde.

"We are here to create havoc and history," says Ozzy Osbourne. "Let the madness begin..."

“This could be the one of the coolest things I've ever been a part of,” says Corey Taylor of Slipknot.  “Starting out as an Ozzfest band, coming into our own with Knotfest and now combining forces to make a little metal history...it was meant to be and I'm proud to be a part of it.”

"Playing with Black Sabbath is always an honor,” Shawn “Clown” Crahan of Slipknot exclaims.  “Merging both festivals will be a legendary experience that will be life-changing for all fans.  We are excited to bring all the families together again."

“We want it to be the loudest, biggest, dirtiest festival in California.  We couldn't be happier,” says Sharon Osbourne.

“The impact of Ozzfest on heavy music and on Slipknot, cannot be underestimated,” says Cory Brennan, President, 5B Artist Management.  “For 20 years Ozzfest has given fans their first glimpse at bands like Slipknot, Disturbed and countless others, but also bringing new fans and bands together every year.  Ozzfest inspired Slipknot to continue this vital tradition with Knotfest, and it’s an honor to celebrate our genre alongside them in 2016.”

The San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds is where OZZFEST--the event that launched the U.S. hard rock festival market and went on to tour the world--began in 1996 and where KNOTFEST last year took over the San Bernardino, CA venue and expanded into a camping festival. There’s also a longtime history between the two namesakes of the events, with Slipknot appearing at OZZFEST in 1999, 2001, 2004, 2005 and 2013 at the inaugural OZZFEST Japan.

The OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST 2016 line-up is as follows, with both OZZFEST and KNOTFEST dedicating a stage in honor of their departed comrade Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead.

10  Forum / General Discussions / Black Sabbath Wrap Leg One of "The End" World Tour on: March 16, 2016, 05:33:39 pm
Ozzy, Tony and Geezer wrapped the first dates of BLACK SABBATH’s massive 2016 THE END world tour last week (3/7) in Vancouver, BC to an overwhelming response, from fans and critics alike. The first leg of sold-out North American shows will be followed by a run of summer performances including return visits to Los Angeles (at the iconic Hollywood Bowl), New York, Chicago and 14 additional cities. Tickets for the summer shows are available at www.Livenation.com. See BLACK SABBATH’s world wide itinerary below.

Here’s some critical feedback from 2016’s THE END tour:

“From the pulverizing opening tritone of ‘Black Sabbath’…the show was more a celebration of the pioneering heavy-metal band’s legacy than an epitaph…each of the musicians was in stellar form in Chicago…now may be the beginning of the end for Black Sabbath, but, as they proved in Chicago and over the years, their music will echo through the ages.”
--Kory Grow, ROLLINGSTONE.COM, 1-23-16

“The beginning of The End happened Friday in Chicago at the United Center, where the band played a two-hour set of snarling hard rock songs, played according to the rules of strict minimalism but always with brawny execution…Black Sabbath remains a genre of its own, combining space jazz and prog-rock, gothic imagery and riff-heavy thunder.”
--Mark Guarino, THEGUARDIAN.COM, 1-23-16

“The iconic rockers were able to bid farewell in style…If this was truly the band's last show in Washington, the quartet had left its fans with a night they'll never forget.”
--Ernest Jasmin, TACOMA WEEKLY, 2-8-16

“Sabbath sounded so strong that, at times, it seemed like an absolutely ludicrous idea for these guys to even be thinking about hanging it up. Yet, if the goal is to go out on top--in peak fighting form--then Sabbath is right on track.”
--Jim Harrington, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 2-10-16

“Osbourne was confidently strutting the length of the stage, imploring the audience to clap along…Osbourne led the band through classics like ‘War Pigs’ and ‘Children of the Grave,’ exuding bravado and, often, joy. The night didn't belong to Ozzy, though. While bassist Geezer Butler remains rock-solid…Iommi's effortless leads and power-chord riffs laid the groundwork for generations of hard-rocking axe-slingers, yet his attack still sounds fresh and resonant, and his vibrato-laden shreds are as precise as they were four decades ago…”
--Jeff Miller, BILLBOARD.com, 2-13-16

“Black Sabbath put on as perfect of a farewell show at the Pepsi Center [in Denver] as you could have hoped for. They played, sounded and yes, sung as well as they did in their prime…Instead of leaning on theatrics, they let tight riffs take the audience away…Their astonishing performance Monday night proved the band to be going out with remarkable live chops.”
--Mike Long, DENVER POST, 2-16-16

“One of the strongest live rock shows in recent memory…Sabbath performed the music with such power and conviction that songs many of us have heard ad nauseam seemed fresh and new…The fluid rhythms, the interlocking, crushing dynamics between the rhythm section, and Iommi and Osbourne's uncanny ability to switch in and out of the role of avatar of doom and avuncular hype man, rousing the crowd, made for a show that was much more than merely a great performance. It felt inclusive.”
--Tom Murphy, WESTWORD (Denver, CO), 2-16-16

“Black Sabbath turned its The End farewell tour into a celebration--albeit one steeped in a little bit of Satanic mechanics…the 100-minute, 14-song show was standard issue Sabbath--Spartan and leaden hard rock played with tight precision.”
--Gary Graff, THE OAKLAND PRESS (Detroit, MI), 2-20-16

“Black Sabbath, from Birmingham, England, was foundational for metal, but the music it played on Thursday--all of it recorded between 1969 and 1976--is full of scales related to the blues, which has its own long tradition of despair masking joy. That joy on Thursday was in sound and feeling. You could hear the band in giant, clear, present detail, unusual for the Garden…”
Ben Ratliff, NEW YORK TIMES, 2-26-16

“…he [Osbourne] was on fire last night, hitting all the notes exactly the way you remember them. All the stretched out vowels, all the ‘ohh yeahh!’s, everything. In even finer form was Tony Iommi, whose riffs were as crisp today as they are on the early records, and whose solos still screamed. No disrespect to Geezer Butler of course, who shined all night and especially on his bass solo in ‘N.I.B.’…There really wasn’t a moment where you weren’t hearing some of the best heavy metal ever written…The show was also a serious reminder of how even with legions of excellent doom bands popping up for decades, still nobody can do it like Sabbath.”
--Andrew Sacher, BROOKLYN VEGAN, 2-27-16

“If this in fact was the end for Black Sabbath, then it was one hell of a farewell.”
--Dean Pilling, CALGARY SUN, 3-5-16

“Black Sabbath were magnificent…what sets Black Sabbath’s music apart is how fresh it still sounds…a night free of stage effects or gimmicks, packed with a selection of brilliantly performed songs from the best heavy metal band there ever was and ever will be.”
Robert Collins, CTV NEWS VANCOUVER, 3-8-16

These dates mark the end of the epic journey that BLACK SABBATH began nearly five decades ago. The massive 2016 THE END world tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time will take the band to Australia and New Zealand in April, then Europe for a mix of summer headlining and festival performances, before returning to North America in August.

As previously announced, a special fans-only CD featuring original artwork by Shepard Fairey/Obey Giant is being sold at shows along the tour route. The CD is comprised of eight previously unreleased tracks: four songs are outtakes from BLACK SABBATH’s worldwide #1, Grammy Award-winning album 13 and four live songs from the band’s critically acclaimed 13 World Tour.

When this tour concludes, it will truly be THE END, THE END of one of most legendary bands in Rock ’n Roll history...BLACK SABBATH.

With BLACK SABBATH’s 2016 THE END Tour launch now just a week away, comes exciting news about a new special limited edition CD--THE END--to be sold exclusively at shows on the legendary band’s massive worldwide final tour.

Featuring original artwork by Shepard Fairey/Obey Giant, the CD is comprised of eight previously unreleased tracks: four songs are outtakes from BLACK SABBATH’s worldwide #1, Grammy Award-winning album 13 and four live songs from the band’s critically acclaimed 13 World Tour.  The CD features Ozzy Osbourne (Vocals), Tony Iommi (Guitar) and Geezer Butler (Bass), along with Brad Wilk (Drums) on tracks 1-4, Tommy Clufetos (Drums) on tracks 5-8, and Adam Wakeman (Keyboard) on tracks 5-8.  Tracks 1-4 were recorded at Shangri La Studios in Malibu, CA and produced by Rick Rubin, mixed by Andrew Scheps at Punkerpad West and recorded by Greg Fidelman.  Tracks 5-8 were recorded and engineered by Greg Price and mastered by Robert Vosgien at Capitol Studios Mastering.

 



THE END CD track listing is as follows:

1. Season of the Dead
2. Cry All Night
3. Take Me Home
4. Isolated Man
5. God is Dead? (Live Sydney, Australia 4/27/13)
6. Under the Sun (Live Auckland, New Zealand 4/20/13)
7. End of the Beginning (Live Hamilton, ON Canada 4/11/14)
8. Age of Reason (Live Hamilton, ON Canada 4/11/14)

Beyond the collaboration with Shepard Fairey, BLACK SABBATH will celebrate artists each night of the tour by commissioning exclusive posters for each market on THE END tour.  A example of the artwork is below:

 

For those who can’t wait for THE END tour to hit their city, the band has released a behind the scenes preview from their Los Angeles rehearsals.   Set to debut Friday, January 15 at Blacksabbath.com and via the band’s social media, the clip was teased via a short clip Wednesday, January 13.

BLACK SABBATH will end the epic journey they began nearly five decades ago when their 2016 THE END world tour kicks off Wednesday, January 20 in Omaha, NE.  The band--Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler--will then head to Australia, New Zealand and Europe (for a mix of summer headlining and festival performances), before returning to North America in August. 

The massive 2016 world tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time marks THE END for BLACK SABBATH as they close the final chapter in the final volume of the incredible BLACK SABBATH story with this tour.  BLACK SABBATH’s THE END farewell tour promises to surpass all previous tours and will feature the band’s most mesmerizing production ever. The support act for the whole tour is RIVAL SONS.

When this tour concludes, it will truly be THE END, THE END of one of most legendary bands in Rock ’n Roll history...BLACK SABBATH
