Ozzy Osbourne teases Ozzfest Japan 2015 announcement

Ozzy Osbourne is teasing an announcement for the 2015 edition of Ozzfest Japan.

The event’s website has been updated with a countdown clock that will see details for the festival revealed on Monday, March 23.

The first edition of Ozzfest Japan took place in 2013 with a lineup that included Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Tool, Deftones, Slash, Stone Sour and many others.

The two-day festival — the first to ever travel to the country — drew sold-out crowds of 20,000 fans on each day.

Ozzy will headline the Monsters tour with Judas Priest and Motorhead starting in April before hosting OzzFiesta, a 5-day event set for Mexico in May.

This fall, the rocker will perform a month-long residency in Las Vegas with a new show called Hell Gate.

Ozzy’s wife and manager Sharon describes it as “a Halloween experience. It's a very state of the art, interactive show that Ozzy will put on with everything that goes with Halloween."
