KATAKLYSM: Ozzfest

OZZFEST RETURNS:

EXPLOSIVE 2010 BILL THIS SUMMER TO BE HEADLINED BY

OZZY OSBOURNE AND MÖTLEY CRÜE

OTHER ARTISTS ONBOARD INCLUDE METAL LEGEND ROB HALFORD,

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, DEVILDRIVER,
AND DROWNING POOL


This is the tour where the fans have always screamed the loudest…


More than 15 years after OZZY OSBOURNE debuted OZZFest, the defining blueprint for hard rock tours and festivals returns this August in six American cities with an explosive bill co-headlined by OZZY and, in their first-ever OZZFest appearance, Mötley Crüe--touring together for the first time with OZZY since he invited the group on their now legendary 1984 arena tour. Expect the energy to go way off the charts at the all-day extravaganza of music and deranged merriment.


The 2010 OZZFest--back after taking a year off in 2009 and the 2008 one-off stadium spectacular in Dallas, TX with OZZY and Metallica headlining--will kick off August 14 in San Bernardino (the birthplace of the first OZZFest in 1996) and then make stops in Chicago, IL, Hartford, CT, Camden, NJ, Pittsburgh, PA and Boston, MA. Live Nation will promote the tour nationally.


The main stage will feature full sets from Ozzy, Mötley Crüe and Rob Halford (who last appeared on OZZFest in 2004 with Judas Priest), performing songs from his solo career along with material from Judas Priest and Fight. DevilDriver and Nonpoint will round out the main stage line-up. Second stage headliners and six-time OZZFest veterans Black Label Society will be joined by Drowning Pool, Kingdom of Sorrow, and Goatwhore, Skeletonwitch, Saviours and KATAKLYSM.


Each OZZFest date will include 13 bands on two stages with music beginning at 1:00 PM. In addition, concert-goers can once again visit the OZZFest “Village of the Damned” featuring a mix of interactive activities, shopping and entertainment throughout the venue concourses.


These OZZFest dates mark the first concerts in the U.S. in connection with the June 15 release of SCREAM (Epic Records), the OZZFest’s founder’s first album in three years and 10th studio album overall. OZZY’s band consists of his OZZY’s new guitar player, Gus G., bassist Blasko, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.

Tickets for the show’s go on sale May 22 at www.OZZfest.com and www.LiveNation.com.

KATAKLYSM MAINMAN COMMENTS ON BAND’S INCLUSION ON OZZFEST 2010
Ozzfest 2010 will kick off on August 14 in San Bernardino (Ozzfest’s birthplace in 1996) and travel to Chicago, Illinois; Hartford, Connecticut; Camden, New Jersey; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Boston, Massachusetts. Playing the Second Stage will be none other than Canada’s kings of northern hyperblast, KATAKLYSM. Frontman Maurizio Iacono checks in about the band’s inclusion on Ozzfest 2010:





"We are grateful that KATAKLYSM is about to turn the clock next year to 20 years of existence. Through good and bad times, we’ve stayed strong and remained a leading force in the underground, but I never in my life thought I would be on tour with Ozzy or Mötley Crüe while being in an extreme band. One can’t help but feel amazed when legends take notice and invite you to participate on one of the world’s most important tours: OZZFEST. Thanks, of course, to the Osbournes and their organization for this great opportunity. I wanna sincerely say ‘thank you’ to our fans for being there for us and giving us a chance through their support to make KATAKLYSM a legacy. Even more important, we’re here to party hard with you guys! This is a lifestyle and we should all unite at Ozzfest to celebrate this privilege of being metalheads!”



Each Ozzfest date will include 13 bands on two stages with music beginning at 1:00 p.m. The main stage will feature OZZY, MÖTLEY CRÜE (on their first-ever Ozzfest appearance) and HALFORD (who last appeared on Ozzfest in 2004 with JUDAS PRIEST), performing songs from Rob Halford's solo career along with material from JUDAS PRIEST and FIGHT. DEVILDRIVER and NONPOINT will round out the main-stage lineup. Second-stage headliners and six-time Ozzfest veterans BLACK LABEL SOCIETY will be joined by DROWNING POOL, KINGDOM OF SORROW, GOATWHORE, SKELETONWITCH, SAVIOURS and KATAKLYSM.

Ozzfest 2010 Main Stage Acts
OZZY OSBOURNE

Ozzfest 2010 Second Stage Acts
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY
DROWNING POOL
KINGDOM OF SORROW

----------------------------------------------------------------

in my opinion, Ozzfest is no longer that incredible deal it was once, moreover Kataklysm play the second stage, which is extreme oriented yes, but it remains a second stage, like a cinderella (at least this is what i personally think). however, you may say, "better this than nothing"... to play the Ozzfest remains a remarkable thing although with "only" a 6 date tour , partecipation of (old) glam/hair metal guys included...
