Ozzy Offfest Date
antiMusic reports: He isn't playing all of the Ozzfest dates this summer but strange as it sounds Ozzy Osbourne has booked an Offfest date.

There is speculation this one-off came about as the result of the killing of the Wisconsin Ozzfest show on that date. Promoters pulled the plug on the Wisconsin Ozzfest after fans showed a lack of interest� e.g. slow ticket sales. 

Meanwhile, Ozzy has been added to more stops on his namesake tour this summer. [see full story for those]- Click Here for the Full Story
