The Ozzfest 2007 tour officially kicked off Thursday (July 12) in Auburn, Washington. Fan-filmed video footage of headliner OZZY OSBOURNE's performance has surfaced on YouTube:
According to the Seattle Weekly, before OZZY OSBOURNE took the stage, "a series of TV and movie spoofs played, all of which put Ozzy in humorous situations. From 'The Sopranos' to 'Wedding Crashers', Ozzy let himself be laughed at. On stage, he's like a foul-mouthed little kid, grinning and jumping around, spraying the crowd with foam and dumping buckets of water on them.
"He poured the first water bucket right on top of the blond Rolling Stone writer. RS was the only press allowed to shoot his set, so seeing that put a smile on my face, as I'm sure it did the rest of the Ozzfest press corps.
"Guitarist Zakk Wylde and bassist Blasko kept up with the old man, with Wylde getting a chance to solo for a few minutes mid-set. He's becoming the Randy Rhoads scholar everyone hoped he could be. And with a large floor fan blowing in his face the whole time, he looks as cool as he sounds. Probably helped keep the heat off, too."
