According to The Press-Enterprise, Jody Barnes and Jennifer Knorr from San Diego became the first couple to participate in the "Unholy Matrimony" package at Ozzfest, Ozzy Osbourne's travelling festival that kicked off its summer run Saturday (August 14) at San Manuel Amphitheater in Devore, California."We thought it would be cool to get married at a concert, we just didn't know how," Knorr told the web site. Read the entire report, and check out photos, from The Press-Enterprise. The "Unholy Matrimony" package includes 10 general-admission pit tickets for the bride and groom and eight guests; an official Ozzfest wedding ceremony by ordained minister, Ozzfest's MC Big Dave; an Ozzfest cake and champagne toast. In addition, all 10 guests get early entry into the venue with an exclusive pre-show backstage tour hosted by Big Dave; access to the Ozzfest VIP lounge; specially designed Ozzfest tour shirts; collectible tour posters (numbered, limited), PIIQ - Bass Masq Earbuds by Sony and official Ozzfest guitar picks. Beyond the above, each lucky couple is eligible for a special Ozzfest wedding gift from the Unholy Matrimony bridal registry, generously supplied by this year's Ozzfest sponsors. Items include a Monster Energy Refrigerator (with twelve cases of Monster Energy Drink to get started), a special ESP LTD Signature Series GUS-200. This year's Ozzfest main stage features full sets from OZZY OSBOURNE, MÖTLEY CRÜE, ROB HALFORD, DEVILDRIVER and NONPOINT. Second stage headliners and six-time Ozzfest veterans BLACK LABEL SOCIETY are joined by DROWNING POOL, KINGDOM OF SORROW, and GOATWHORE, SKELETONWITCH, SAVIOURS and KATAKLYSM. In addition to non-stop music on both stages, concert-goers can once again visit the Ozzfest "Village of the Damned," featuring a mix of interactive activities, shopping and entertainment throughout the venue concourses. All six dates of the Live Nation-produced tour feature "all-in ticket pricing," which means there are no hidden fees whatsoever — no parking charges at the shows, no facility or surcharge fees — the price you see is the price you pay. Tickets prices start as low as $30 per ticket when purchased in a four-pack.
