The gossip mill is grinding away about this year'sOzzfest
. First it was aboutan Ozzfest date in London
on the bands (nearly every fan site claims Metallica will play). Now,word is
there will be two-day festivals held in London and Dallas. That's it. Two shows, two days each, one in the States and the other abroad.Blabbermouth.net
has been the loudest proponent of the Dallas Ozzfest rumor, and, generally, we trust them. However, I've checked in with several sources at labels and in bands, and so far no one has heard anything from the Ozzfest camp about the rumor being legit. For now, we can just keep our fingers crossed that the next Ozzfest 2008 item will be usconfirming
a big, badass metal show in the Big D. Seriously, folks, fingers crossed. --Chelsea Ide
