CA Ozzfest

BLABBERMOUTH.NET has received a number of e-mails regarding last night's (August 20) Ozzfest concert in Devore (near San Bernardino), California, which reportedly included an on-stage appearance following IRON MAIDEN's set by Sharon Osbourne during which she called MAIDEN vocalist Bruce Dickinson a "prick." The following report was submitted by David Priest, editor-in-chief of On Track Magazine:

"Last night's [August 20] headlining performance of IRON MAIDEN at Ozzfest in San Bernardino, CA rendered some interesting, if not disturbing, results. Although MAIDEN played one hell of a show, they were under attack from the moment they began their set. From the time they hit the stage, they suffered power loss on at least three occasions and they were continuously pelted with ice, bottle caps, and eggs, among other things. Vocalist Bruce Dickinson was even spit on by one attendee. He seemed to believe these occurrences were not by accident and insinuated that they had been planned from the beginning of the night [Download MP3 files of Bruce's on-stage rants at last night's Ozzfest: Bruce#1, Bruce#2]. He also encouraged the other audience members to break the arm of anyone that they saw throwing things their way. Upon concluding their performance, the emcee for the evening began to chant Ozzy, Ozzy while Bruce was still speaking. Bruce retaliated by chanting MAIDEN. After he left the stage, Sharon Osbourne took over the mic and informed the crowd that they absolutely loved IRON MAIDEN and their crew and stated that they were all wonderful but that their singer Bruce Dickinson was a prick and had disrespected Ozzfest since they began their stint with the touring summer festival [Download MP3 file of Sharon's anti-Bruce rant at this location]. This, of course, came as a shock to those of us in attendance and the there was ample confusion and speculation from audience members there after. As previously announced, last night's show marked the final performance of IRON MAIDEN on this year's Ozzfest. VELVET REVOLVER will be taking over their slot on the last remaining dates."

hehehe! ;-)
I was there when that happend ... i mean the dude from IM was a total dick ... he was talkin shit about ozzy and the Reality show that he did .... it was soo not right ... but sharon came out sayin that he was a total prick when he first started the tour .. so who knows what really went on

all i know is that he was trippin about 5 extra mins .. cause he was doin 60min sets but because slipknot was on the tour for that one show .. everyone set was cut short ... so eh
You know what... I remember Bruce Dickinson bashing the reality show at my concert too....
He was a total basterd there was no need for him to be bashing ozzy like that
i mean its called OZZFEST not Maidenfest lol
Yea man... I don't understand why he was so bigheaded about it. I mean no one said he had to like Ozzy, but to just dis he & his family every night on the Ozzfest stage is wrong.
Rock Stars .... man and u notice that ozzy did not say shit about what he said he took the high rode that class ...

and it bugs me that all of the people that ive talked to about it blame sharon and well im sorry but thats not right
There are rumors saying that Sharon & Kelly Osbourne were behind it... but whatever... Ozzy is just Ozzy... He didn't do anything wrong. Bruce dissed his family & he didn't say anything about it at all... He just let it be... If Sharon took action people shouldn't be blaming Ozzy for it...
Since when has anything ever been in Ozzy's control since Sharon became involved?
Thats soo true .. i mean i look up to her as a promoter and as a Business Woman .. i mean shes smart for what she does ..

and it is true ozzy is a push over when it comes to Sharon ... i mean thats his wife so he will do ANYTHING she says and i mean ANYTHING
Lol. She must be a great lay... hahaha
