UPDATE: Motörhead Steps In As Two Off Of Ozzfest

Rob Halford's band Two won't be appearing on Ozzfest after all.

Two's official website confirms the news with no explanation for the cancellation, but a post on AOL from a management representative says the band is booked in Europe from approximately June 20 to July 15 and cannot get back in time for the July 3 Ozzfest starting date. The band had been scheduled to headline the second stage.

Ozzfest spokespeople confirm the news and say that Motörhead will now step up and headline the second stage.

Two are scheduled to begin rehearsing today (April 13) in Halford's adopted hometown of Tempe, Arizona. Their first live appearances will be an in-store performance at a Tempe record store April 22 and a show at a Tempe club called Boston's April 23.

Meanwhile, David Lee Roth's official website has named Two guitarist/co-writer John Lowery as a full-fledged member of the David Lee Roth Band. Apparently this isn't expected to interfere with his duties in Two.

Lowery appears on the new Roth track "Slam Dunk."
