Report: No Decision On Final OZZFEST Show Until End Of The Week

According to unofficial Ozzfest web site Ozzfest.qrow.com, an official decision on whether the September 4 Ozzfest show will go on is not expected to be made until late Thursday or early Friday.

As previously reported, the final Ozzfest 2004 concert, scheduled to be held Saturday in West Palm Beach, FL is in jeopardy as Hurricane Frances is expected to hit the area around the weekend.

Frances' center Wednesday night was about 585 miles east-southeast of West Palm Beach and was moving west-northwest at about 14 mph, according to the Casper Star Tribune. Residents of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina watched the forecast closely in case Frances took a sharper turn to the north.

If Frances hits Florida, it could be the most potent two-hurricane combination to hit a single state in at least a century of record-keeping. Frances is as strong as Hurricane Charley — which raked Florida's western coast less than three weeks ago with 145 mph wind, causing billions of dollars in damage and killing 27 people — but forecasters said it could become a Category 5 with winds of 156 mph or higher.
