Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne Top Bill on One-Day Ozzfest in Dallas

May 13, 2008 11:15 AM ET

After months of speculation, the official Ozzfest site announced the date, site and lineup for this year's Ozzfest. The event will take place on August 9th and will be held at the unfortunately named Pizza Hut Park in Dallas, TX. Ozzy Osbourne himself tops a bill that also includes Metallica, Serj Tankian and Jonathan Davis on the main stage. Two other stages will feature up-and-comers like Devildriver, Witchcraft and the Sword. This is the first year in its twelve year history that Ozzfest won't be a touring festival, and unlike last year's version (which featured Ozzy, Lamb of God and Black Tide), fans will actually have to pay to get in. Tickets go on sale on Saturday, May 31st.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
