NEUROTICA Jump To OZZFEST 2002 Main Stage

Florida rockers NEUROTICA will move up to the main Ozzfest 2002 stage beginning with the August 3rd date at the Polaris Amphitheatre in Columbus, Ohio. The band will kick things off at 5:00 PM.

Audience reaction to NEUROTICA's blistering set has been so intense that a few weeks ago tour organizers bumped up the band's performance to a later, more desirable timeslot on the second stage. After OZZY OSBOURNE announced last week that he'd be leaving the tour for three weeks in order to be with wife Sharon while she undergoes chemotherapy treatments, tour organizers made some adjustments to the line-up.

"We feel proud to be the first band to step up and help Ozzy and his family get through these hard times. We're looking forward to the opportunity to play the main stage. It's a dream," says NEUROTICA frontman Kelly Shaefer.

In other news, NEUROTICA have announced that their blazing live version of THE BEATLES classic, "I Am The Walrus", will be featured on the heavily-anticipated Ozzfest 2002 CD, due out in August. Rolling Stone magazine raved, "Want heavy metal for breakfast? [NEUROTICA] are first on the Ozzfest schedule. Reason to set your alarm clock: an excellent cover of 'I Am The Walrus'."

The Ozzfest 2002 compilation will include live recordings from OZZY OSBOURNE, SYSTEM OF A DOWN, ROB ZOMBIE, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, DROWNING POOL, ADEMA, DOWN, HATEBREED, MESHUGGAH, LOSTPROPHETS, FLAW, ILL NINO, SOIL and PULSE ULTRA.
