Power Outage At OZZFEST Interrupts AVENGED SEVENFOLD's Set

The Press-Enterprise is reporting that a brief power failure interrupted AVENGED SEVENFOLD's Ozzfest 2006 performance at the Hyundai Pavilion in Devore, California Saturday (July 8) at about 7:20 p.m. and led some frustrated fans to start two small fires on the back lawn of the pavilion. No one was injured and power came back on shortly after 8 p.m. As a result, AVENGED SEVENFOLD were forced to play an abbreviated set consisting of only four songs, according to one concert attendee.

The 11th appearance of the festival at the San Bernardino County venue began at 9 a.m. with opening act THE RED CHORD. The big star during the day, however, was the sun, driving temperatures into triple digits.

"They're giving away free Monster (an energy drink) in one of the booths, so I'm just trying to stay hydrated," first-time Ozzfest attendee Danielle DeShane, of Highland, told The Press-Enterprise. "That's all anyone can do."
