Ozzy Osbourne to headline Sonisphere 2011?

Postby metalicbear » Fri Jul 02, 2010 11:09 pm

What do we all think then?

After hearing that SG has been in heavy negotations to bring Ozzfest to the UK this year and will happen in September, I think Ozzy could be a very big possibility to headline Soni next year.

I was thinking this the other day there...perhaps they will do an Ozzfest day at Sonisphere? Like they did at Download a few years ago...Although personally I'd like if it was a Black Sabbath reunion that played Sonisphere next year. I've got a feelign a reunion will happen seeing Heaven & Hell is done, but not sure if it'll happen in time for next year

An Ozzfest day would be nice, with the likes of Murderdolls, Rob Zombie, BLS, Marilyn Manson etc

I did initially think, maybe a Black Sabbath reunion, but Ozzy is touring his new album for the next 18 months, so a reunion is a bit unlikely.

I'm sure Ozzy would agree to use the Soni dates as his European tour.

Also Metallica are big fans of his.

I'm absolutely certain he will be there.

Defo wouldn't say no to an Ozzfest day at Soni. Especially if it was our 'bonus day Friday' like this year ;)

But yeah, as metalicbear mentioned above, Ozzy could easily use the Soni dates around Europe as his touring schedule. Would be a massive draw!

ozzy could easily do a one off black sabbath reunion at soni, but would be more likley an ozzfest day

also he would be a huge pull in the states if soni do a festival over there ,if its a 2/3 day fest they may have a big 4 day and obviously other bands on the other days like greece and turkey this year.

As much of a draw that he would be there, I really hope Sonisphere keep to Europe and don't take their dates over to the States.

If Ozzy managed a link up with Sonisphere, it could potentially mean a very good tour for him. Might also mean we get a few of the smaller US bands to come along from Ozzfest...and maybe BLS and Rob Zombie too with a bit of luck

Sounds like a plan

at this moment in time, Ozzy is NOT big enough to headline Soni - if there was a Black Sabbath reformation then yes, definately big enough

but Ozzfest has failed to sell out - even standing tickets have not yet fully sold - which gives the idea that Ozzy is not big enough (size of Rammstein, Metallica, Linkin Park, Maiden) all of whom have sold out the o2 or bigger venues single handedly.


so no to Ozzy as a headliner, but yes to Black Sabbath reformation :)

I wouldn't mind Ozzy or Black Sabbath or both? Ozzy subheadliner then Sabbath headline like they did one Ozzfest in America once.

Black Sabbath reunion would be well better
SG has already got a big 4 tour started, so he could get a Sabbath reunion (yn)

I'd say Ozzy is almost certain to headline next year, what with the Ozzfest tie up. Perhaps Friday will be an Ozzfest day, bringing over a few bands like Rob Zombie and the potentially reformed Velvet Revolver.

As to him not being big enough - He is, by a mile. If he toured properly in this country, would be in arenas, not the deliberately small gigs he's done recently. i'd prefer Sabbath, like many people, but I doubt we'll see that until 2011 at the earliest, what with the Scream tour being pencilled in for 18 months.

He did that at the Ozzfest in '98 at the Milton Keynes bowl. It was rather good.
