IN THIS MOMENT - "Please Stop Sending Messages Bashing Ozzfest Or The Osbournes"
IN THIS MOMENT have issued the following update:
"We have received a ton of messages in response to our Ozzfest 2008 announcement, there have been lots of questions and some confusion regarding Ozzfest 2008 and we feel that they need to be addressed. First off everyone is asking if Ozzfest 2008 is a one day show or if its a full tour, the press release states that it is a ONE DAY destination event, so yes everyone Ozzfest this year is ONE DAY August 9th in Dallas Texas. The fact that it will only be one day this year seems to have really pissed off a lot of people who don't live in Texas, we understand being disappointed about something like this because Ozzfest has become something alot of people have come to count on every year, it's ok to be disappointed, we get it, we would love to tour the whole country with this amazing package too, but guess what.....its only one show this year so we have to deal with it. The people who are bashing Ozzy and Sharon with words like "betrayed" or "fucked over" are way out of line. Ozzy and Sharon created this innovative festival that gave metal and rock lovers across the U.S. a chance to see a bunch of awesome bands each year, they also gave numerous underground bands a chance to play in front of thousands of people who otherwise would have never known about them, they blazed the trail for every other hard rock/metal festival out there today and they even made it free last year, people should show a little respect. Ozzy has been on tour for 11 months, if he decides not to do a full Ozzfest tour this year that's his business. Ozzy and Sharon have given In This Moment some amazing opportunities over the last 2 years and we have nothing but the utmost respect for them and what they do . That being said please stop sending messages bashing Ozzfest or the Osbournes, we won't post them, so it's a waste of your time. We love our fans and we know some of you are disappointed so let me assure you, we will be touring our asses off starting in September and we will be coming to your town. Hang tight, we love you all, see you soon."
