BLACK SABBATH: OZZFEST 2001 Tour Rider Posted Online

The Smoking Gun, a web site that posts original documents on the Internet, has obtained BLACK SABBATH's backstage rider for the Ozzfest 2001 tour.

The contract rider includes specifications on stage design, sound systems, lighting rigs, as well as an artist's wish list — from transportation and billing to dressing room accommodations and meals.

"For BLACK SABBATH's 2001 Ozzfest shows, Jack and Kelly Osbourne's creamy butternut squash soup and strawberry Haagen-Dazs were kept a room apart from dad's water biscuits, tea bags, and New York-style bagels," reads a posting on the site. "The extra dressing area is likely the only way the Prince of Darkness could get refuge from his yapping siblings and dogs."

BLACK SABBATH's complete Ozzfest 2001 tour rider, featuring details of the group's insurance requirements, dressing room needs, security, catering, and other minutiae, can be viewed at this location (7 pages).
