Marilyn Manson May Play Osbourne's Ozz Fest

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 Ozz Fest tour, which reportedly includes Marilyn Manson, Pantera, Type O Negative, and Powerman 5000 this time out.

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

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

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