We regret to announce that OZZY OSBOURNE has been forced to cancel Saturday evening’s performance at Graspop Metal Meeting. Regretfully, Ozzy has severe laryngitis and his doctor has ordered an immediate 72 hours vocal rest before further evaluation.
Says Ozzy: “ I was so looking forward to performing at the legendary Graspop Metal Meeting. It really pains me to let people down and it is with great disappointment that I am unable to perform for the great fans of Belgium.”
We wish him all the best of course!
Obviously we need to reschedule the programme. Judas Priest will now headline on Saturday in a two-hour performance featuring a special laser show.
Fortunately Channel Zero, Belgium’s number one metal outfit, were more than willing to fill the vacant slot. This is the first time they’ll be playing the new album Feed ’Em With a Brick live.
With career album sales in excess of 100,000 copies, Channel Zero is easily Belgium’s biggest metal band. Last year, they made a triumphant comeback and with their new album finished they are ready for more. Feed ‘Em With a Brick is brutal, vicious and full of power. The album is rooted in metal history but the overall sound, the lyrics and the sheer energy oozing from every track are very much 2011. Channel Zero 2011 AD is Channel Zero at its absolute best.
