OZZY AND SHARON OSBOURNE & MTV OFFER ROCK BANDS OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME IN THE NEW SERIES, “BATTLE FOR OZZFEST,” PREMIERING ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 25TH AT 10:30PM (ET/PT)

Eight Bands Battle For A Tour Spot on Ozzfest 2005

Prepare for the ultimate battle of the bands! MTV, Ozzy Osbourne and Emmy award-winning producer Sharon Osbourne announced today the premiere date for Battle for OZZfest, a new, weekly, unscripted series, chronicling the intense nationwide search for eight hard rock bands competing for the chance to perform on stage on OZZfest’s worldwide 10th Anniversary tour. In addition to the opportunity of a lifetime by sharing the stage with Ozzy himself as well as other rock superstars, the winning band will receive touring money, brand new band gear and a possible record deal. In the premiere episode, Sharon & Ozzy turn the competition upside-down as there’s one big twist that the bands don’t know about - and that’s just a taste of things to come. To find out, watch the premiere of Battle for OZZfest on MTV on Monday, October 25th at 10:30pm (ET/PT).

“Ozzfest has been the launch pad for so many new acts like System of a Down, Incubus, Slipknot, Disturbed, Godsmack and Chevelle - all who have gone on to multi-platinum success,” commented Sharon Osbourne. “Now we are taking eight bands and giving them the same opportunity. But life on the road isn’t always what its cracked up to be and our bands are going to find that out, the hard way.”

Each episode will feature these rock wanna-be’s being put through the everyday grueling tasks of an enormous tour as their rock and roll fantasies meet life on the road realities. With a varied crew of rock & roll characters, all born to raise bloody hell-- and all living on the same bus, fighting for the same dream in what’s known as a cutthroat business, anything can happen. Every episode delivers more trial, tribulations and eliminations by Ozzy and Sharon. The contestants are constantly faced with various tasks intended to test their strength, be it physical, mental, moral or musical, because in the end, only one band will be crowned champion and receive the Grand Prize package... if they’re hardcore enough to handle it.

Now almost a decade old, OZZfest is without peer in championing live hard rock and metal music. The 'Fest has maintained its success because founders Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne understand its core fans and give them exactly what they want and enough of it to last them through 'til next year. OZZfest devotees even decided the 2004 lineup, by voting for their favorite bands at www.OZZfest.com. The survey attracted more than 65,000 fans during the first week of voting alone. The earsplitting extravaganza has earned a hallowed position in the busiest tour season with a relentless commitment to its core fans and the consistency of quality they demand as their birthright.
