First up, is the mad mans festival of music, Ozzy Osbourne and Ozzfest. Straight off of the pain killers and into an amphitheatre near you. Joining Ozzy will be none other than Slayer, Judas Priest with Rob Halford and Slipknot. I didnt see any tour dates listed, but if you are a fan, then drop by Billboard.com and check it out.
Our number two features today is the 10th Anniversary Vans Warp Tour where the line announced includes Bad Religion, the Vandals, Good Charlotte, Lars Frederiksen & the Bastards. All totaled, expect 50 bands to participate. Jimminy Christmas, 50?!?!? Get the full scoop here.
Staying really busy this year is one of my all time favorite live performing bands, Slipknot. This time around, they will be heading the JÃ¤germeister Music Tour, along with Fear Factory and Chimaira to name a few. This will be a small venue tour and if you are in my neck of the woods, check them out on May 2 in Oklahoma City at the Bricktown Events Center. If you have not seen Slipknot live, you are missing one hell of a performance. More details can be found here.
