Ozzfest 2010 To Return
0
Ozzfest 2010 will make its heralded return to the festival circuit after a one year hiatus. In addition to this good news, Soul Sucka, will not be the name of Ozzy Osbourne's new studio album. Osbourne spoke out to Rolling Stone: "When we put that on the Internet none of my fan base liked the title. They were like, 'I can't imagine me walking around the fucking house with the words "Soul Sucka" on my T-shirt.' So I was like, 'Fuck it. I've got to come up with something else!'" The now untitled set is due out in July, the same month Osbourne says that Ozzfest will return after a one-year break. "After Ozzfest I'm doing the most extensive tour of my life," he says. "It'll be something like, 3,025 dates." The new album will be Osbourne's first without Zakk Wylde since the guitarist joined the band in 1988. Taking his place is Greek guitarist Gus G. Thanks for the report to SmnNews.com.

    Nice to know he really listens to his fans and is willing to change the title of the album.

A friend and I speculated that, but Blabbermouth just reported that Serj says they have no plans to get back together. So far, we're thinking Alice in Chains, possibly either Down on Hellyeah (definitely not both), and possibly Bullet for My Valentine in the token "sucky emo band to draw the scene kids" slot.
    YES on Alice in Chains. But i don't get the hate on BFmV. They don't sound anything like emo music. Try giving them an actual listen, they're a pretty talented group of guys even if they're not as br00tal is Cannibal Corpse or whatever metalheads that sit online too long love.

    Eff yes to Alice in Chains headlining or at least being on the bill, they haven't done a big festival prolly since Lollapalooza '93 And dammit Serj for raining on the parade, once again....

    my fingers crossed for.... Ozzy with Gus G, BLS, Motorhead, Alice in Chains, Anthrax (with bush), Disturbed, Sevendust, Down, if possible RATM, and of course all the unsigned bands, etc.

    3025 dates, must be a typo, that would take at least 7 years, if they do one a day

    Wait, Ozzfest 2010 is returning? Wouldn't it have to happen first?

    It won't be anything to do with Rob Zombie. Because he's already on Mayhem Fest. Same with Lamb of God, Korn, and Five Finger Death Punch.

    Iron Maiden will never play with Ozzy again... not after last time... UP the Irons!!

    im hoping to see some good old heavy bands that are fun to see live. none that tool and anthrax would be cool. but anthrax is out with that big four tour, along with metallica i believe so i dont thing that would work out. GET IRON MAIDEN!!

    dimebag reigns
    Think about how gus g unit will be feeling,i mean how would you feel stepping in the shoes of a legend like zakk? hahaha best of luck to him but as others have said before,ozzy always picks awesome axemen

    Cynic - yesssss. Then people would get to see what music would be like if Jesus was a composer

    If Oz really wanted to have Soul Sucka be the album title then why not leave it? I admit i don't like it one bit but it's HIS album so why not have some musical integrity. Sad to see such an awesome legend in metal music sink deeper and deeper just to please and make money. If it's a great album then people will still buy it no matter what it's called. Who cares if some kid doesn't want to wear a shirt with Soul Sucka on it as long as he's listening to the album..while wearing a different Ozzy shirt perhaps?

    Umm last time I checked, BFMV has never been an emo band and I'm not too sure on how many scene kids listen to them. Try Bring Me the Horizon to attract scene kids (god, i hope they're not on OzzFest

    Ozzfest 2010 to return? I thought there hadn't been a Ozzfest 2010 ever...

    Mr Crowley contains one of the one of the best ozzy solo's to date, he just laked any presence or umph. I'm not dissing Gus in anyway, i'm just saying Zakk has a better stage presence. Hopefully Gus can do something with his tone to make it stand out more in the act, of course at the blizzcon it coulda been the sound system, ect.

    Sure, I definitely don't think Bullet For My Valentine is anything extremely special, but they are talented guys who make decent, solid music that is very enjoyable to listen to.I think they make great catchy music with really good melodies that give them their unique sound.Plus, I can't believe people even consider "emo" to be a genre, it's just pathetic to me.To me, musis is music, and I don't base how much I like it on their looks.And also, this is coming from somebody who listens to lots of very heavy and well respected bands such as Cannibal Corpse, Pantera, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Metallica, Death, and so on.Now, you don't have to care for their music because I do, but don't hate bands for stupid reasons like that.It's just ignorant. On the subject of the article, I wish Ozzy good luck and hope the festival this year is great as it once was.This year's Mayhem festival lineup looks great to me, but definitely not nearly amazing like last year's.

    its not that people hate BFMV because of the looks or emo metal style,its just that honestly their musical compositions are not as great as they are praised for.

    motorhead would be good but i wouldn't count on anthrax rember the big four are touring together in Europe this summer.

    Wasn't ozzfest 08 free? I hope '10 is aswel
    That was in 07 and I'm sure it won't be free because after that one I believe thare was some huge todo over that and I also believe thats why there was only one location in 08.

    I don't want to start a huge fight over this, especially on here since this article's not on this subject.That comment definitely has lots of truth, but tons of the comments I see where people hate on them, they say they hate their fashion and/or that they're "emo".

    Man this sucks... I want Zakk. I hope BLS tours with Ozzfest. That'd be badass if Zombie went as well. And perhaps A7X like they did a few years back... if they're still up to touring now that is... RIP The Rev

    if 3025 isnt a typo then he is going to be touring constantly for nearly 10 years!

    Gus has a very boring live act compared to Zakk.

    I don't see sloppy playing, constant pinch harmonics or being unwashed as part of a good live performance though, so I'd greatly prefer to see Gus G

    Awesome news, definitely glad the CD title will be changed, and smiles to the sarcastic obscene number of tour dates. Ozzy rocks.

    Can't wait to hear the lineup! "Soul Sucka" sounds like a funkadelic album title, great call changing it

    Yes. A MILLION TIMES YES. I hope Ozzfest does as many dates as it used to do. I'm sick of this exclusive shit. Also, I never even heard about Wylde's departure until this article O_o
