BLACK SABBATH To Play U.K.'s DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL? has issued the following report:

"Following news that BLACK SABBATH will be playing at the Roskilde festival in Denmark, there's talk that Ozzy Osbourne and the rest of the band's original line-up could be coming to Download too!

"The announcement confirms that BLACK SABBATH will be on the European festival circuit this summer and means they will be likely to play a UK date. There's be no better suited festival in this country than Download!

"SYSTEM OF A DOWN have already confirmed they will be playing the Sunday night, so we predict that BLACK SABBATH could fill the Saturday evening slot.

"VF also has reason to believe that VELVET REVOLVER will be playing at the festival, possibly supporting one of the headline acts. After all Donington Park is where GUNS N' ROSES put themselves on the map back in 1988! (back then at the Monsters Of Rock festival.)

"Other strong rumours doing the rounds concerning this year's Download line-up include MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE DATSUNS, THE PRODIGY, MARILYN MANSON, GREEN DAY, IRON MAIDEN, INCUBUS, SLIPKNOT, H.I.M., ASH, and outside bet AC/DC.

"In 2004, METALLICA and LINKIN PARK headlined the 60,000-capacity rock festival.

"Download 2005 takes place at Donington Park, Derbyshire, on 11-12 June. It is believed that tickets will go on sale to Download members in early February."
