First-Ever Ozzfest Japan Set for 2013

Any band will tell you that it’s always a treat to tour Japan. The Japanese metal music fans are among the most passionate on the planet and are always rabid to see their favorite acts. Surely with the fans in mind, it has been officially announced that the famous Ozzfest will be making its first trip to Japan in May 2013.

Ozzfest will be hitting Japan on May 11 & 12, 2013. No bands have been confirmed as of this posting, but the official Ozzfest Japan website has been launched, which features a video announcement straight from Sharon Osbourne, the festival organizer wife of Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne.

“Ozzy and I want to tell you that [in] May 2013, we’ll be bringing Ozzfest to Japan for the first time ever,” begins Sharon. “We are so excited. Please be there because we love you, Japan.”

In other intercontinental metal news, Sharon also recently told Australian radio station Triple M that Black Sabbath will be headed down under in 2013. “They are going to be touring here in the spring of next year, definitely.” Could that mean Sabbath are headlining Ozzfest Japan, as well?

Stay tuned for more Ozzfest Japan news as details are unveiled.
