Tonight, Ozzfest 2010 will finally be revealed. Like any fest, there's been a ton of speculation of who will play and on which stage. So far I've heard just about every rock band mentioned, including Metallica, Hellyeah, Three Days Grace, Mastodon, Godsmack, Mudvayne, Saliva and more. Some bands have been more heavily rumored than others, especially Metallica and Black Label Society. I can see BLS more than Metallica but I hope they both make it on. I've never seen either band live and would love to get a chance to see Metallica and Ozzy on the same night.
Routing is another issue. It's already nearly May and festival season starts in like two seconds. Tons of bands and venues are already tied up, so I don't see Ozzfest as being a ton of dates this go 'round -- but of course I could be wrong.
One thing I'm expecting for sure is for Ozzfest to completely bypass southern Ohio. I don't know what the deal is this year but all the major rock tours seem to be skipping Cincinnati (and Columbus and Dayton and even Cleveland in many cases) and it sucks. Traveling to shows is awesome but it also costs a bomb and isn't feasible for every event.
So, let's play a game: list your five picks of who will be on Ozzfest 2010. It seems like we're getting a late start on this one but the suspense is killing me. I can't wait to get the official press release!
