    The End Of Ozzfest! 'Iron Maiden set Sabotaged by the Osbournes'

    http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...wsitemID=40691

    In case you don't want to read the long message, here is the best bit:


    From IRON MAIDEN's official message board:

    "About 10 minutes before MAIDEN came on, I was in the center of the pit a few feet from the front railing when a guy comes barging in from the right escorting 4 or 5 people. At first, I tell him to F-off because I thought he was trying to take my spot, but he said he worked for Ozzfest and showed me his passes. He also told me that Ozzy's daughter was with the entourage he brought with him. There were a few girls with him and one of them looked a little like Kelly Osbourne, but I couldn't tell for sure because all of them were wearing bandanas over their noses and mouths. After I heard her speak, I was pretty sure. At that point, I tapped her on her arm and said, 'I really liked you on the show. You were great,' to which she responded, 'Thank you.' There was no doubt at that point. The bodyguard who came with them starting getting chumy with us because he needed a few of us to help him protect the girls from the moshing that would start when MAIDEN came on. I saw the girls passing eggs, and I said, 'What's that for?' The bodyguard said something to the effect, 'You'll see. Something big is going down. You'll hear about it everywhere after tonight. It's all because Bruce Dickinson made some comments in Detroit dissing the 'Osbournes' reality TV show.' He also said that there were about 60 people in the pit who were going to participate in the mayhem. Most of them were wearing the same Ozzfest shirts. Before MAIDEN came on, they all started chanting, 'Ozzy, Ozzy...' I actually saw Bruce off to the left of the stage before they came on. His mike was on and he said something like, 'What the ****?' — probably in response to the 'Ozzy' chanting.

    "When MAIDEN came on, eggs started flying and all these guys were flipping off the band. Nicko had to stop after one song to clean his set. Bruce was obviously very pissed. Thank God they continued their set. At one point, someone through a cup of corn with milk or something. It got all over Bruce, me, and about a dozen other people. Then the technical problems started. The sound went out on about three songs — 'Phantom of the Opera', 'Hallowed be thy Name', and one other one I can't remember. I could not believe what was going on. I was furious because I didn't want the guys in MAIDEN to think badly of the fans who love them. I do think that Bruce understood because the band continued to play the full set, and Bruce made comments to distinguish the fans there from the guys throwing stuff. Towards the end of the set, Bruce started yelling at a guy in the pit to my left about 10 feet. Bruce said he saw him throwing stuff and wanted the ********** out. It took a long time for security to get him out. The reason why is that one guy from Kelly Osbourne's entourage was holding down the guy security was trying to take out. Eventually security pulled both of them out. After MAIDEN's set, it was obvious that Sharon Osbourne was in on it, because she came out to say that 'Bruce Dickinson is a prick.'

    "Needless to say, it was insane. I was really pissed that MAIDEN got treated this way. I wanted to enjoy their set and instead got drama from egg throwing and songs cut short by someone pulling the power. Bruce was obviously pissed and the rest of the band seemed a little irritated. It showed in their playing too because some of the songs were sloppy, but of course you couldn't blame them given the situation."
    I hope Ozzfest dies now, if that is to be believed then it deserves to.

    I'm all for Iron Maiden joining Ozzfests new rival, Gigantour (By Dave Mustaine / Megadeth) and hopefully with Judas Priest.

    Nontheless, shocking news

    I know Sharon is a hard ass bitch professionally, but i don't think she would have masterminded this particular stunt, although the "prick" comment says volumes. She could have just dropped them from the show entirely and cited something legal from the contract.

    This sounds like something her doped up daughterslut would pull.

    I actually had respect for Sharon once.

    EDIT: clarifying who i had respect for.

    The thing for me was that they smuggled the eggs in and the Fat guy with the American Flag who opens for Ozzy / BLS.

    Well, Ozzy should ban his family off his festival then.

    More seriously, I hate it when this kind of thing happens. People should go to festivals for the music and to have a good time. Since when did image or dissing become part of rock music anyway? I thought only rappers attacked eachother.
    Bunch of retards anyway, bringing eggs to a concert. Same with everything concerning art: if you don't like it, don't go and see it. You don't see people in musea pelting eggs at paintings they don't like, right?

    So, I wonder what Bruce's comments at Leeds & Reading will be then. Should be interesting, if he even feels it's worthy of commenting on.

    But if Sharon &/or Kelly were involved, nice going - you've just pissed off the fans of one of the most popular metal bands in the world, and the band showed a hell of a lot more class than you did, simply by not leaving the stage and staying to finish their set.

    I think the events will be remembered by a lot of people for a long time.

    Edit:

    Well, if it were a Damien Hirst, it woud only improve it.

    That's a matter of taste again. Though if the painter approved, I guess it would be okay.

    There is something on the official Iron Maiden website that looks like it could be a comment on what was posted on the forums mentioned above.

    Very strange, and very sad too.

    That's just really low. Hopefully Iron Maiden will not play for the rest of the tour. They don't need bloody 12 year old preppy kids throwing eggs at them!

    Yep, they mention it. And they also say there's more comments to come, as far as I can tell. I'm curious...

    Iron Maiden play the best metal out there, all the guys throwing stuff deserved to be pushed over into a mosh pit and jumped on heavily and, most importantly, deliberately.

    Though I strongly disagree on deliberately kicking people in a mosh pit, I'm with Yorkiebar here: exceptions are to be made in this particular case.

    You got that right Vaya!

    I think it must be added that though Bruce probably hasn't behaved like a complete gentleman, what the Ozzy/Sharon/camp has done is just very, very sad.

    And I believe somebody said that Sharon wouldn´t have done anything like that because she is too much of a businesswoman to do a thing like that, should realise that she broke a (record?) deal with Billy Corgan because `his face made her want to throw up´.

    In my opinion, Sharon is nothing but a gold-digger.

    Re: The End Of Ozzfest! 'Iron Maiden set Sabotaged by the Osbournes'

    Bruce already had an infinite amount of credit in my book (also because of Heavy Metal Flying, which is simply great!), so I think once in a while he can be a 'prick' if he wants to.

    And there's nothing wrong with dissing reality shows. That's what they're there for, aren't they.

    To be brutally honest, I doubt Ozzy knows for sure what day it is...

    DEAR MOTHER OF HOLY CHRIST.

    What a totally F*ckist thing to do! Considering that the Irons are teh win, oh hell I hope Ozzfest dies now. The Irons should get some guys to dress up like the Trooper and storm ozzy next set and bayonette his daughter to the song:
    "Bring your daughter to the slaughter"
