Ah that's a shame, never saw Ozzy with Gus and much prefer him as a guitarist


Gus was with him the last time I saw Ozzy and didn't do much for me. Suppose it's difficult to put your own mark on the back catalog of so many others. Would prefer Zakk personally so pretty happy with that as long as Oz puts a decent shift in.


I caught Gus's Firewind live a few years ago and realized how good he is ... a fantastic guitarist.

Great guitarist, not knocking him technically and have enjoyed Firewind when I've caught them. Just think Zakk is a better fit with Ozzy.

Lads looking to go to this next year- was thinking of getting tickets as soon as the wages go through in two weeks - is it likely to sell out before then would ye think?

Ya they do give an indication afaik; last year was the first time I've heard Combi tickets selling out and that was literally a day before the festival. The Friday (Rammstein) had sold out prior and good-too hot weather pushed Combis over the line.

I don't get it.Yes legend is a very over used term these days but G n R,Maiden and Ozzy including Sabbath sales all in excess of 100 million album sales each .Priest 50 million.Then you have Volbeat nobodies in comparison.I could get it if they were even Belgians but Danish!Could be an early night to recover abit for Sunday's proceedings :roll:

Small beer is normally 1 token which runs at about €2.75 (or €2.50 if you buy them in advance). Some food massively over priced. Think I paid 5 tokens for a beef stew thing last year, almost 14 quid....but I was hammered and it looked really tasty :D Chips/burgers normally run at 2/3 tokens so you'd get by.
