No Ozzfest in '09' It's the Apocalypse!


This just in, by way of Rolling Stone: Ozzy Osbourne has announced that Ozzfest has been officially cancelled for this year. Surprisingly, the current financial crisis was not cited as his main cause for the cancellation; instead Ozz reportedly wants to devote the time to completing his tenth album – the follow up to 2007’s Black Rain – which he hopes to release this fall.

It wouldn’t be the first major setback to Ozzy’s high-profile namesake – last year it was cut down to a single-day event, and the year before that admission was free… but this time it’s off the calendar completely, the first cancellation of the annual event since 1996. Osbourne claims it will be back next year… we’ll see if that pans out.
