OZZY and SHARON OSBOURNE stopped by the HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM yesterday to announce a pairing. No, the now-separated couple aren't getting back together, but revealed that they are promoting a new two-day festival, OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24th and SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th at SAN MANUEL AMPHITHEATER and FESTIVAL GROUNDS in SAN BERNARDINO, CA.
On hand to help make the announcement were BLACK SABBATH's GEEZER BUTLER, SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR, CLOWN and SID WILSON, as well as a host of performers, including DISTURBED's DAVID DRAIMAN, HATEBREED's JAMEY JASTA, DEAD CROSS drummer DAVE LOMBARDO, ANTHRAX's SCOTT IAN, ZAKK WYLDE, HUNTRESS' JILL JARVIS and SUICIDE SILENCE's EDDIE HERMIDA.
Said TAYLOR: "This could be one of the coolest things I've ever been a part of. 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."
BLACK SABBATH will headline SATURDAY night, with DISTURBED, MEGADETH, OPETH, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, RIVAL SONS, CHILDREN OF BODOM, HATEBREED and DEVILDRIVER, among many others.
