OZZFEST New Year’s Eve Los Angeles Spectacular

The Press Release:

For the first time since its 1996 debut, OZZFEST–the annual musical event that celebrates hard rock and heavy metal–has created a special one-night-only New Year’s Eve celebration to ring in 2019. Set for Monday, December 31 at The Forum in Los Angeles, the event features headliner OZZY OSBOURNE and a line-up of some of the greatest names in rock (and OZZFEST alumni): Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, and Jonathan Davis (of Korn), along with the OZZFEST debut of Body Count featuring Ice-T. The New Year’s Eve party will include an outdoor stage, along with other holiday festivities, details of which will be announced in the coming weeks. The evening will conclude with OSBOURNE onstage counting down to the new year!

“I asked Sharon what we’re doing this New Year’s Eve and she said ‘WE’RE DOING FUCK ALL!” says OZZY OSBOURNE. So I thought ‘we didn’t do Ozzfest in 2018, so let’s do a New Year’s Eve Ozzfest.'”

“What better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve than with some of the greatest performers in this genre and our longtime friends Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis and Ice T,” says Sharon Osbourne.

Tickets for the Live Nation-produced OZZFEST 2018 go on sale Friday, October 26 at 10:00 AM (PT) here. Ticket prices range from $49.50 for general admission to $179.50 for a reserved seat. VIP packages are also available, details of which can be found at www.ozzfest.com.

The OZZFEST main stage line-up is as follows:

OZZY OSBOURNE

ROB ZOMBIE

JONATHAN DAVIS (of Korn)

BODY COUNT featuring Ice-T

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t think I’ve seen a concert on New Year’s Eve since KISS did one of their spectacles at the Izod Center which I think was still actually called the Meadowlands at the time. It was a blast but I’m a diehard KISS fan and the chance to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new one with a few thousand fellow fans was awesome to me. These days I usually stick closer to my home turf on such a night and would prefer a quick few toasts at a nearby pub with quality tunes playing than the madness of Times Square and my overwhelming media metropolis on NYE. Mind you I have friends who love going there so to each their own. Though I don’t see myself heading to Vegas for this I’m sure that it will thrill all the fans of Ozzy and those other bands in the lineup. What do you think? Will you be heading to the City of Sin with an urge to Rock, Revel and Try Your Luck? Chime in down in the comments section below. I’d love to hear what you think about this one and the one night only stand for Ozzfest.

Tonight: “Legends Of Tomorrow” Season 4 Premiere On The CW Network (10/22/2018)

It was interesting to find The CW Network making us wait so long for all of the superhero shows but now that there are something like six of them, it makes sense to parse them out to not overwhelm the viewers. If you’ve not been paying attention, we’ve already touched upon the premieres of “Supergirl”, “Arrow”, “Black Lightning” and “The Flash” in posts of their own and ALL of these shows exist in the same universe of characters with the only exception being Black Lightning. Let’s take a glance at the cool season poster, the last season recap and some old and new casting.

Season 3 Recap: In season three, the team discover that they created anachronisms throughout time, and Rip has formed the Time Bureau to help fix them. Rip tells the team of the demon Mallus, whose follower Nora Darhk has resurrected her father Damien and Amaya’s granddaughter Kuasa, also recruiting Gorilla Grodd so that they can release Mallus from his prison by perverting history. The team loses both members of Firestorm, but is joined by Zari Tomaz, a hacktivist from 2042 whose air-controlling amulet is connected to Amaya’s totem, and Wally West / Kid Flash, a speedster formerly under the tutelage of the Flash.

Opening: “Halloween” In Theaters Everywhere (10/19/2018)

The nights are getting darker earlier and the chill that has been hitting the air is much colder than one would normally expect in the Fall. It goes right through you like a good scare and what better time for the movie “Halloween” to open. This sequel continues from where the very first film ended so it should be rather interesting. If you didn’t see the final trailer, please click HERE to do so because its loaded with startles.

The Premise: The first season sees lawyer-by-day Matt Murdock use his heightened senses from being blinded as a young boy to fight crime at night on the streets of New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood as Daredevil, while uncovering a conspiracy of the criminal underworld being led by Wilson Fisk. In the second season, Murdock continues to balance life as a lawyer and Daredevil, while crossing paths with Frank Castle/Punisher, a vigilante with far deadlier methods, as well as the return of an ex-girlfriend—Elektra Natchios. In the third season, after Fisk is released from prison, Murdock, who has been missing for months following the events of The Defenders, reemerges a broken man and must decide between hiding from the world as a lawyer, or embracing his life as a hero vigilante.

The Press Release:
Rock n’ Roll, Blues and a dash of Country are being served “Shaken & Stirred” in the latest release by the ‘Earl and the Agitators All Star Band’. “Shaken & Stirred” (a follow-up to their 2016 self-titled EP) will be released on Friday, October 26th, 2018. Earl & the Agitators is the brain child of Foghat founding member/drummer Roger Earl, singer/guitarist extraordinaire Scott Holt (former 10-year Buddy Guy alum) and Foghat lead/slide guitarist Bryan Bassett. Rounding out the line-up for the live bonus tracks are Foghat bassist Rodney O’Quinn, guitarist Tony Bullard and percussionist Mark Petrocelli.

“This band was born out of a passion for American Music,” explains Roger. “Rock, Blues & Country. Scott Holt, who played with Buddy Guy, one of my musical heroes, for many years, channels this music with a joy and mastery of a seasoned pro. With his fireballing guitar and soulful vocals, we had a blast writing and recording! And since we are all big Johnny Cash fans we also included a couple of his songs for fun. I love making music with Scott!”.

“So, you’re in a band and you have some friends that are in another band,” adds Scott. “You get together and hang out, writing and recording music. You share a love for old rock n’ roll, blues and country, so you jam on a Tommy Tucker tune and even take a swing at a Johnny Cash cut from the Sun Records days. You’re having so much fun that you give it a name and even take it onstage! The recipe is simple; take your Chess and Sun 45’s, throw them in a blender with a dollop of thundering drums, thumping bass and searing electric guitars…I’m pretty sure that’s the recipe for rock n’ roll!”
