HE'S NOT FUCKING KIDDING!!!

I don't know if it's my computer or I'm so discombobulated I can't post the link
to the Chicago Tribune site with the story.  three day tix are the only ones available right now
and single day tix will be sold after they announce the individual day line ups

I so hate Lollapalooza.  this news has me all, um . . . . at a loss for words

they will be ten miles due east of me.  how can I not go to this?
and the story sez it's the only other world tour performance of the original four besides Donnington

so gnomez.  come to chicago and I'll throw you in my ocean

Well they don't say there won't be an ozzfest
They're just saying that Sabbath are only playing once in the USA at Lollapalooza
I guess there's still a chance of an ozzfest tour or an ozzy and friends tour
But its getting a bit late though to be making any announcements isn't it?

in the past, Lollapalooza has strictly enforced its EXCULSIVITY CLAUSE
restricting bands from scheduling shows near the date and area of the festival
(and this is a quote and link directly from a Chicago Tribune article about it from 2010)

http://leisureblogs.chicagotribune.com/turn_it_up/2010/06/lollapalooza-one-of-many-festivals-with-exclusivity-clauses.html

Lollapalooza:
Unless artist or agent thereof receives express written
consent executed by a representative of C3, Artist will decline any
performance engagement from 180 days before Lollapalooza to 90 days
following Lollapalooza within a 300-mile radius of Lollapalooza. This
radius clause also includes any performances (public or private) in
Chicago the weekend of Aug 6-8, 2010. Artist will not announce ANY
Lollapalooza performance until Lollapalooza has publicized its schedule.

and, looking over the shoulder of someone on Facebook about this earlier today
the people on the Black Sabbath page are NOT HAPPY about this news

What's the big deal about that limitation?
300 miles isn't THAT restrictive surely?
Sabbath and Ozzy can still play all over the USA (except within 300 miles of Chicago)!?
Unless of course Lollapalooza don't enforce that requirement on them?

Am I the only one who finds it funny that Black Sabbath is playing Lollapalooza? The soul reason why OZZFEST was created was that Lollapalooza rejected OZZY from playing.

I know.  It's pretty fucked-up.

Also, does anybody remember EXACTLY when they announced the dates/bands for Ozzfest '10?

That's what I've been saying!  This is strange.

Sabbath is one of my top favorite bands, but I would never travel all the way to Chicago unless the whole lineup is killer.

I'm hearing you
I prefer the line up for Download in the UK
Although it would be cheaper for me to get to Chicago than to Donnington!

Can't remember the dates but I know it was mid April that they announced Ozzfest 2010 and mid-May when tickets went on sale.
