Review: OZZY 'Acted Like An Enthusiastic Young Rocker' At OZZFEST's San Antonio Stop

July 12, 2006

Ramiro Burr of the San Antonio Express-News reviewed this year's Ozzfest when it hit the the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in San Antonio, Texas on Tuesday (July 11). An excerpt from his review follows:

With thundering metal guitars and some old BLACK SABBATH favorites, Ozzy Osbourne worked the heavy metal fans into a frenzy at his 11th annual Ozzfest at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Tuesday afternoon.

Impressive was Osbourne's energy. After all, the man is 57.

But there he was in black shirt and jeans on the Munster Energy Second Stage, kicking off his 4 p.m. set. Because the stage faced south, he performed under a merciless sun.

Yet he seemed well-rested, and he acted like an enthusiastic young rocker, jumping, screaming and exhorting the fans to "let me hear you!"

He opened with the haunting tones of "Mr. Crowley" as the crowd roared its approval.

Also impressive was the turnout, estimated at about 18,000 by security officials. This despite the fact that the concert took place on a weekday and on an asphalt parking lot under a blazing summer sun.
