Post CAMDEN, NJ OZZFEST OZZY A NO SHOW
Just got back from Ozzfest.
Ozzy supposedly has bronchitis.
Rob Halford did the Sabbath set and did an incredible job.
He definitely is the Metal God

I just got a call from Travis and he told me the story. Pretty awesome of Rob to do that.

Ozzy did have laryngitis, and had to cancel last moment. They cut like 15 minutes off the show...but most of that, was the long intro. So I think it was like 1 or 2 songs max.

I was really worried at first as alot of people were pissed
Some were throwing shit on stage and at Rob.
I was actually afraid of a riot.
I wonder what they would have done if Priest weren't on the tour.
Rob's birthday was yesterday and he said this was the best present.
I am so glad I went to this show.
It is now 2:00 a.m. I got to go night night

wow.


I wish people would see how cool it was for Rob to do double duty....and to look on the bright side, that it was a TREAT...a RARITY.


The fuckin' dummies....lets see...the options are: Rob is TOTALLY COOL and sings OR There's no Sabbath show period.

Hmmmmm.


And this whole thing about getting pissed because a singer is legitimately messed up? WEAK. These are same dumb ass mother fuckers who call in sick to work 10 times a year.

I am manager at a large grocery distribution center (warehouse) and the workforce out here is so pathetic, when we do 6 month and yearly reviews if someone has 10 call-ins they have great attendance!!!!

I think there are 3 shows left and I'm wondering what is going to happen.
Think tomorrow is Pittsburgh.
When they said Ozzy couldn't sing but Sabbath were still going to play, I knew it was going to be Rob as he did that Sabbath show in CA before
I was cheering and thought I would be killed for it.
Last month, I left before Sabbath as I went just to see Judas Priest.
Glad I decided to say this time. :D

They were disrespecting Halford?

Those sons of bitches.

On ONE hand, THEY PAID to see Ozzy.

On the other hand, Ozzy was sick... so they got to see something really awesome. ROB HALFORD up on stage with BLACK SABBATH.

And thats a lot better than NO Black Sabbath.

Ain't that the truth.
There were 2 guys near me passed out in their chairs through the whole Sabbath set.
And these seats were $100.00 with service fees!
2 guys asleep on the floor near the concession stands. One must have gotten sick on the floor.
I actually was expecting worse though

A NOTE FROM SHARON

To those who attended the Ozzfest show in Camden on August 26,

I would like to address the few complaints that have arisen from Black Sabbath’s performance with Rob Halford in Camden last Thursday, August 26th. The situation quite clearly was that Ozzy was suffering from bronchitis. He was hoping from the morning of the show until the afternoon that he would have some sort of voice so that he could perform that evening. Unfortunately by late afternoon he was advised by doctors that that just wouldn’t be possible. So, our options were:

1. Have Black Sabbath not to perform at all and inform the crowd at 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon, which might have lead to a riot.
or
2. Ask one of the legends of the genre, Rob Halford, if he would step in for Ozzy that evening so that people wouldn’t leave feeling disappointed not seeing Black Sabbath perform at all.

Of course Ozzy’s more disappointed than the fans and he feels incredibly guilty that he let everyone down.

Sincerely,

Sharon Osbourne

P.S. Ozzy and I would like to personally thank Gil Edwards and WYSP-FM for their enormous and continued support of OZZfest and hard rock music in Philadelphia.

And as Chad said...KNUCKLEHEADS.

At least Camden got to see an entire show.
The fans in Florida this week might not be so lucky

Might?

I'd say that's in the bank. Joe (Wrathchild) is there..his office is closed tomorrow to let people board up and prepare.

A large percentage of people who go to Ozzfest get out of their trailer park once a year...to go to Ozzfest.

I'm not speakin' as a casual observer. I'm speaking of somebody who's seen the crowds from the stage for the past 3 years.
