Ozzy Osbourne is deeply disappointed about having to miss the upcoming Power Trip festival next month, an event that aims to unite ‘six legendary bands synonymous with thunderous and commanding music.’
Ozzy Osbourne is experiencing profound sorrow over his absence from the upcoming Power Trip mega-festival, as revealed by both his wife and manager, Sharon, as well as his youngest daughter, Kelly.
Scheduled to occur from October 6 to 8 in California, Power Trip boasts an impressive lineup, featuring ‘six legendary bands that epitomize thunderous and commanding music.’ The roster includes Guns N’ Roses and Iron Maiden on Friday, October 6, AC/DC and Judas Priest on Saturday, October 7, and Metallica and Tool on Sunday, October 8. Ozzy Osbourne was initially announced as a co-headliner alongside AC/DC for the October 7 performance but reluctantly withdrew from the event in July, conveying to fans, “Regrettably, my body is signaling that I’m simply not prepared yet, and I am far too proud to deliver a half-hearted performance for my first show in almost five years.”
Subsequently, on his radio show, Ozzy Speaks, the singer confessed that his ongoing health issues have brought about a series of disappointments.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, while promoting their family’s upcoming podcast series, Sharon Osbourne remarked, “Ozzy wishes to share the stage with all his friends. Witnessing everyone moving forward while he’s left behind is truly heartbreaking for him.”
Kelly, their daughter, chimed in, saying, “We avoid discussing it at home because it’s simply too heart-wrenching to see that all he desires is one more performance.” She emphasizes that the issue isn’t her father’s vocal abilities but rather his current physical incapability to deliver a full set. “He mentioned that if he can’t provide his fans with the performance they paid to witness, he won’t go through with it,” she disclosed to Rolling Stone.
Meanwhile, Maynard James Keenan of Tool expressed his awe at playing alongside acts like AC/DC and Iron Maiden at Power Trip during an interview on the DannyWimmerPresents podcast.
He advises podcast hosts Matt Pinfield and Josh Bernstein, saying, “The best approach is not to dwell on it. Simply continue doing what you do and strive to excel, so you don’t appear out of place alongside these superstars.”
