OZZY OSBOURNE Compilation Offers OZZFEST Tie-In

Bilboard is reporting that early purchasers of OZZY OSBOURNE's March 22 boxed set, "Prince of Darkness", will get a little bonus.

The initial pressing of the set will include a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for this summer's Ozzfest, valued at $40. To redeem, customers go to the Ozzfest.com web site and punch in the code on the coupon.

The Epic four-disc set covers Osbourne's solo years. It includes a disc of new recordings by Osbourne of his favorite tunes by other artists, including the ROLLING STONES' "Sympathy for the Devil" and ERIC BURDON's "Good Times".

The set's suggested list price is $49.98, although it will probably sell for closer to $40. Ozzfest's lineup is expected to be announced this month.

As previously reported, the following bands are believed to have secured slots at this year's festival:

BLACK SABBATH
IRON MAIDEN
ANTHRAX
("Among the Living" lineup)
SHADOWS FALL
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY
ROB ZOMBIE
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE
AS I LAY DYING
THE HAUNTED
MASTODON
TRIVIUM
BURY YOUR DEAD
A DOZEN FURIES
("Battle for Ozzfest" winners)
