BLACK SABBATH will headline this year's edition of Ozzfest, according to Hits Daily Double, the companion web site of music industry tip sheet HITS. In addition, the much-rumored IRON MAIDEN/JUDAS PRIEST pairing seems to be a go as well in what will mark the first time the two metal legends will play together since 1983. It is unclear, however, if PRIEST's participation in the package is contingent upon the return of former frontman Rob Halford to the group, who haven't been able to fill arena-sized venues in North America since the completion of their "Painkiller" tour in 1991. BLACK SABBATH's headlining slot at this year's Ozzfest will be the group's first since 2001, when they shared the bill with the likes of MARILYN MANSON, LINKIN PARK, DISTURBED, SLIPKNOT and CRAZY TOWN, among others.
