That contribution was extended yesterday, when Osbourne's wife and manager, Sharon, announced that there will be no price attached to tickets for this year's show.
That's right, Ozzfest 2007 will be free:
"Everybody has been so good to us over the years, and year after year ticket prices get higher and higher and higher,” Sharon Osbourne, who is Ozzy’s manager as well, said. "We just thought we can't keep on raising ticket prices because there is not that much money out there anymore. Hey, kids can go online and download music, why not go to a show for free too? What the heck?"
Fans can plan on getting tickets through sponsors' websites, and the sponsors will pay for the tickets. However, nothing is on release yet.
