Even Ozzy solos has a history of great songs he can mix in the set with a few Sabbath songs. The big let down is the fact that unless you live within a 4 to 5 hour drive to those 6 shows, alot of fans probably cannot make it for various reasons. Add other shows to the line up, play the midwest, south, just a few more dates and alot less people would be bitching about it.

In hindsight, Ozzy should have just cancelled Ozzfest and took out Halford, BLS, Devildriver, and Skeletonwitch on a fall arena tour. It would have made alot more sense (and cents) instead of this half assed attempt to complete with Mayhem.
I agree with everything here. They're trying to make it out to be a special thing to see Ozzy and Motley Crue but it just isn't anymore. Doing such limitted dates shows a lot of arrogance and gives off an image of "I'm more important than anything else, look how exclusive our tour is." The fall arena tour you proposed is a great idea. It would be like when I saw the first ever Ozzfest in 1996 and it was in an arena.

I agree. Ozzfest with Crue is cool, but not 'special' like it was with Metallica a few years ago. Hopefully we get some off dates.
