Osbourne Readies Ozzfest LP, Bursts 'Bubble'

The 1999 Ozzfest tour will live again in a concert album that will document performances by founder Ozzy Osbourne and other acts, the metal godfather's spokesperson said Wednesday (December 6).

The LP, which may also include some performances from the 2000 edition of Ozzfest, is slated for release in March. The lineup for the release has not yet been confirmed, but acts on the 1999 tour included Black Sabbath (with Osbourne, of course) as well as Primus, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Slayer, Godsmack and System of a Down.

A previously announced documentary film chronicling the 1999 outing, directed by Penelope Spheeris ("Wayne's World," "The Decline of Western Civilization"), is also scheduled to be released in some form next spring.

Osbourne, meanwhile, will not be making a cameo in the upcoming comedy film "The Bubble Boy" despite media reports connecting him with the project, according to his spokesperson.

Reports of Kid Rock's appearance in that film are also false, according to Touchstone Pictures, which is scheduled to release the movie in August 2001.

Kid Rock's reps at Atlantic Records had yet to return calls regarding his involvement in "The Bubble Boy" as of press time.
