Ozzy Osbourne to ink three album deal with sonyDid anyone go to Ozzfest 2008, with Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne as the headliners? It was held on August 9th @ Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas.

According to producers Sharon Osbourne and AEG Live, the show grossed nearly $3.5 million and drew close to 30,000 people to Dallas’ Pizza Hut Park. Sponsored by Affliction Clothing, this year’s Ozzfest marked the return of the 13-year-old music brand after a free run at amphitheaters last year.

This year’s one-off event did “fantastically well,” Says Sharon. “The one thing is you want for the kids to go away and keep talking about what a great show it was, and that’s what they’re doing.”

Osbourne disclosed that plans for Ozzfest to return to Dallas again next summer, likely as a two-day festival-event, and other cities are also being considered.

“Ozzfest ain’t going anywhere,” says Sharon. “We do try and shake things up and experiment, we’re not the old donkey that plods on doing the same shit.”

Meanwhile, 2008 has been a wonderful year for Ozzy, Osbourne adds. “Ozzy had an unbelievable last record (Black Rain), an unbelievable year touring, and he’s in the studio right now recording,” continues Sharon. “We just signed a new deal with Sony for three more albums and we ain’t going nowhere.”
