Things are being a bit shuffled on the Ozzfest. Here is the latest press release from the Ozzfest camp with all the details.

DOIN' THE OZZFEST SHUFFLE!
Rob Zombie has taken the nod to fill the slot vacated by the Chris Cornell/Rage Against the Machine band on the Ozzfest main stage this summer. Zombie maintains, though, that he will still put on a stripped down show that he has been wanting to do for a while now. He recently commented in the Los Angeles Times about the his decision: "As much as I love the big show and all the production, it becomes this huge thing of its own. Sometimes the show is so huge everything else gets lost...I haven't done anything like [this] in 12 years or something." Taking Zombie's place in the headlining position on the second stage will be Down, the New Orleans-based supergroup fronted by Pantera's Philip Anselmo and also featuring members of Corrosion of Conformity, EYEHATEGOD, and Crowbar. The band released their their highly anticipated second album, "Down II", last week. Hatebreed has also been tapped for the second stage in the slot preceding Down. Their second album, "Perseverance", was issued last week as well. And for the first half of Ozzfest 2002 party rocker Andrew W.K. will party on the second stage; Switched has been added to the second half of the tour.

Along with these additions to the bill there are some date changes as well. The July 10 Jones Beach show has been moved to Scranton, Pa., and the Indianapolis and Cleveland dates have flip-flopped: Cleveland is now Aug. 4 and Indianapolis is Aug. 13.
