Sharon Osbourne Expresses Optimism About the Future of Ozzfest Tour

Sharon Osbourne Enthusiastic About Reviving Ozzfest In a recent development, Sharon Osbourne, wife, and manager of Ozzy Osbourne, has expressed optimism about the return of Ozzfest. Responding to inquiries about the potential revival of the iconic festival, she affirmed: “Yeah, sure. Of course.”

Financial Motivations Drive Management, She Remarks

Ozzfest’s Future Hinges on Realistic Expectations, Says Sharon Osbourne Addressing the potential return of Ozzfest, Kelly Osbourne noted that the feasibility often relies on how practical bands and their managers are regarding compensation. Sharon Osbourne echoed this sentiment, expressing her belief that managers of bands associated with Ozzfest are primarily motivated by financial gains:

“It’s great. That’s what we wanted — everybody to do spin-offs and do their own festivals, and it’s great. It’s great for fans; it’s brilliant. But why is it when it comes to us that everybody thinks that we are trillionaires, and so that every manager who wants their band on our festival wants one of the fucking trillions they think we’ve got to put on the festival?”

Greed Contributed to the Festival’s Conclusion

Ozzfest’s Rise and Fall: A Creation by Sharon Osbourne Launched by Sharon Osbourne in 1996, Ozzfest quickly became a prominent fixture in the rock and metal scene, particularly during the late 1990s and early 2000s. However, the festival came to a halt after its last installment on New Year’s Eve 2018 in Inglewood, California. Sharon Osbourne sheds light on the reason for its discontinuation, stating:

“It was a very weird beast because all the bands were our mates, but the managers were greedy, and for some reason, they thought that we were making billions on it, and we weren’t. We made a profit. But it was not like — we couldn’t retire on it. And managers and agents wanted more and more and more, and it just wasn’t cost-effective anymore. We stopped because it just wasn’t cost-effective.”

Pre-Show Money Dispute: Band Sparks Issues Before Performance

Early Ozzfest Memories: A Band’s Money Demand Causes a Delay Sharon Osbourne reminisced about a notable incident from the early days of Ozzfest, where a band insisted on additional payment before taking the stage:

“Years and years ago, one of the bands — it was the second Ozzfest we did, or the third — wouldn’t go on stage until I agreed to give them 10,000 more dollars. And they were holding everything up, and I said, ‘Of course, of course, I’ll give it to you.'”

Sharon revealed that the band in question was Danzig but clarified that she didn’t yield to their demand for extra payment. Eventually, the band opted to perform without the additional funds, a move Sharon perceived as an attempt to exploit the situation.
