OzzFest Japan

13 May

Yesterday (2013 May 12), my friend and I went to OzzFest Japan.


It was great!

We went the second day of the two-day heavy metal festival. There were bands on the first day that I would’ve like to see…namely Slipknot, but I mostly wanted to see Black Sabbath.


Here’s the line-up of bands that I saw:


Black Sabbath played:
War Pigs“, “Into the Void“, “Under the Sun“, “Snowblind“, “Black Sabbath“, “Behind the Wall of Sleep“, “N.I.B.“, “Fairies Wear Boots“, “Symptom of the Universe“, “Iron Man“, “God Is Dead“, “Children of the Grave
and the encore was “Paranoid“.

Here’s a photo that I took of Ozzy Osbourne:

(A bit blurry…)

    Looks like a great mix of national and international heavy metal acts

      Yes, the bands were from Japan, America and England.

      Do you listen to metal? Which bands are your favorite?

    Went to OzzFest a few times back home in the UK was a damn good festival. Did you see Steelpanther?


    • tokyo5 May 15, 2013 at 6:48 pm #

      Yeah, Steel Panther was one of the acts that I saw … “Death To All But Metal!”

      Who played at OzzFest when you went?

      Yeah, it was great!

      Have you ever been to an OzzFest concert?


      • jeff77 May 13, 2013 at 11:08 pm #

        No, can’t say I have.


      • tokyo5 May 14, 2013 at 12:55 am #

        Come to Tokyo next year and you can see OzzFest … or Loudpark in October!

    Was Dir En Grey good live?


    • tokyo5 May 13, 2013 at 9:35 pm #

      Are you a fan of theirs?
      If you like their music, you’d enjoy their show … they were very charasmatic!

      But I don’t like that type of growling / screaming vocals … so I didn’t enjoy their set so much.

    I kinda wanted to go this too, not sure how many more live shows Ozzy can do lol. Glad to hear it was great.


    • tokyo5 May 13, 2013 at 1:12 pm #

      Well, he did say that they’re gonna do OzzFest in Japan again next year … so you should have at least one more chance.

        Have you been to any of the many music festivals in Japan before?

        For example, the Loudpark Heavy-metal Festival? Or Summer Sonic (Metallica will headline that one this summer).


      • ddupre315 May 14, 2013 at 6:54 am #

        No we only got here in late February, haven’t been to any. We will have to look these up, thanks for the heads up!


      • tokyo5 May 14, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

        If you like metal, I’d recommend Loudpark over Summer Sonic.
