Marilyn Manson May Play Osbourne's Ozzfest

Feb. 12 [16:00 EST] -- Heavy metal perennial Ozzy Osbourne will return to the highways and byways of North America in '97 with the latest incarnation of his Ozzfest tour, which reportedly includes Marilyn Manson, Pantera, Type O Negative, and Powerman 5000 this time out.

Pollstar's concert news website reports that the Ozzfest will hit 15 towns this summer beginning on May 25.

The Ozzfest tour grew out of two festival dates on Ozzy's 1996 tour, which included Slayer, Danzig, Sepultura, and Biohazard among others.

In addition to the main stage acts, the Ozzfest tour will reportedly sport the requisite summer festival second stage for lesser known acts.
