I also do not think Sabbath needs Ozzfest to tour and fill up wherever they play. They would have a hard time competing against Warped, Mayhem Fest and Uproar.
I think a few solid opening acts would be better than the typical festival tour at this point. I would love to see Down, Mastodon, Gojira, Ghost, Anthrax or Machine Head be among the opening bands for this tour.
I too think this will be an arena tour, because of Ozzy's allergies/vocals/etc. But even when he did the arena tour for Black Rain back in '07, the setlists still got shorter as the tour went on, which is what I'm worried about if they do an extensive tour.
