Tool, Slash, Deftones, Stone Sour Added To Ozzfest Japan
The debut of Ozzfest Japan is set to take place on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12, 2013 at the Makuhari Messe arena just outside of Tokyo.
Apart from Stone Sour, the newly announced lineup now includes Tool, Slash, and Deftones. "We've assembled an amazing lineup for the first ever Ozzfest Japan. Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Tool, Slash, what more could you ask for?" says Sharon Osbourne "And we still have plenty of surprises to come. The Ozzfest Japan line-up will rival any of our previous festivals."
"It took a long time for Ozzfest to come to Japan but I know the fans here are going to feel it was worth the wait," Japanese promoter Massy Hayashi says. "Of course, any time you have living legends like Black Sabbath on stage you know it is going to be a memorable event." Last year, H.I.P. produced the sold-out one-day punk rock festival Air Jam at Yokohama Stadium.
A special website dedicated to the event has been set up here.
