The Problem With Doing A Free Tour One Year And A One-Day Fest The Next

Your Ozzfest 2008 poster.

...is that your fans get really uppity and ungrateful.

The backlash has already begun on Ozzfest--or so it would appear in the comments section of the Ozzfest blog where the one-day Dallas show was announced. It ain't pretty, folks. There's a lot of "Fuck Dallas," "Fuck Ozzfest," and "Ozzfest is officially dead" going on in these pages...

But also some pretty funny ones...

From Zenn: "I live a few miles from Pizza Hutt Park in Frisco TX. In August, the temperature averages about 95-100 degrees. With heat index.. well you don't want to know. There is ZERO covering. No Shade at all. I attended EdgeFest a couple years ago when they had it in August. People were FIGHTING for sign post shade. All kinds of sun stroke etc. They moved EdgeFest to May now because of that. Sharon needs to do some research."

From Baird2100: "OZZY SHOULD HAVE PISSED ON BUSH'S HEAD INSTEAD OF THE ALAMO, MAYBE THEN HE STILL COULDN'T PLAY TEXAS"

...and this one's from Baird2100, too: "400-600 FOR GAS ROUND TRIP+3 NIGHT HOTEL 300+ + TIX? 200 X 2=400 EATS ROUND TRIP 200+ TSHIRTS AND OTHER SOUVENEERS 200+ BOTTLE OF WATER=$50 X 10 = 500 TOTAL OZZFEST COST= $2300.00 FOR 2 PEOPLE. BETTER SELL MORE CRACK.... DAMNIT OZZY"

From ShockwaveTXB: "F*CK YOU OZZFEST! Seriously, over the last decade you've made a name for yourself by traveling the COUNTRY giving millions of fans the chance to enjoy this amazing show, and now you SCREW us all by only going to ONE F*CKING CITY?!?!?! Eat a dick!"

From slayerfanbuckle: "YOU LET US DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!FUCK TEXAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THIS IS SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WHY NO TOUR DAMN IT PLZ GIVE US A FUCKING TOUR ive palnned all year you really let me down man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AHH......THIS IS OZZFEST NOT LOLLAPALLOZA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From riverrat: "TOTAL BULLSHIT OZZY IS AN ICON AND SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE!!! NOTHING BUT STEERS AND QUEERS IN TX SO WTF???? OZZY GOING TO A GAY BBQ OR WHAT?"

...And, finally, from garcax: "Ozzy knows where the true fans are, YEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAW!! Hell yeah!! TEXAS the best FUCK the rest!!! It's gonna' be SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET as iced tea!! See y'all bitches there!

...and this: "o [sic] all the cry baby's FUCK YOU!!! While you pussies are out sucking a fat TEXAS donkey dick, I'll be at Ozzfest enjoying the musical SPECTACULAR known as OZZFEST"

Oh, the fun of metal...
