Ozzfest Lottery

(Sleazeroxx.com) If metal fans were pleased to get tickets to this year's free Ozzfest in the first place, Sharon Osbourne and the tour's other organizers are hatching plans to make them even happier once they get in the door.

Osbourne, the wife and manager of tour namesake Ozzy Osbourne, told Billboard.com that about 3,000 tickets for each of the 24 shows -- which begin Thursday in Auburn, Wash. -- have been held back in order to provide upgraded seating for fans. Those will include reserved pavilion locations and even some seats that are actually on the stage, she said.

"On the day of the show you can get to different booths, enter a lottery and get upgraded," Osbourne said. "We'll be upgrading throughout the day, 3,000 people. That's a lot of people to upgrade." - more on this story including Sharon on sponsors who wouldn't "pay up" and Black Sabbath reunion plans
