Crazy Town Join Ozzfest

Hollywood septet touring with rapper and (hed) p.e. before embarking on Ozzy-founded road trip.

As if proving a component of chaos theory, the stir of a “Butterfly” has caused some major tour happenings for rock-rappers Crazy Town.

With their debut album at #16 on the Billboard 200 — thanks in part to the hit single “Butterfly” — Crazy Town are the latest additions to this year’s Ozzfest lineup, according to a spokesperson for the tour.
The Hollywood septet joins the previously announced roster of Black Sabbath, Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Papa Roach and Linkin Park on the main stage (see “Black Sabbath Will Headline Ozzfest” ).
Fans can only hope this year’s stint fares better than Crazy Town’s debut run on last year’s edition of the Ozzy-founded outing. In July, five shows into the tour, they were forced to resign their second-stage post after frontman Shifty Shellshock was arrested and jailed (see “Crazy Town Leaves Ozzfest After Arrest” ).

Meanwhile, Disturbed, who were reported earlier as a main-stage attraction, will now occupy the headlining slot on the second stage. No additional acts could be confirmed at press time.
The sixth annual Ozzfest kicks off June 8 in Chicago; Crazy Town last took top billing on a tour in November, when fellow Ozzfest 2000 alums Shuvel and Slaves on Dope served as openers.
