Spokesperson: JUDAS PRIEST Is Not Opening For OZZY OSBOURNE

JUDAS PRIEST Management Co-ordinator Jayne Andrews has posted another statement on the band's official web site, this time to defend the group's decision to take part in this year's Ozzfest.

"The band chose to do the Ozzfest during the Summer — nobody pushed us into it," she writes. "We looked into everything and decided this was the way to go! JUDAS PRIEST are not 'opening' for OZZY. Other than OZZY (who is of course the headline act), they are the main act. We have many reasons why we chose to do this tour throughout the summer in the U.S. We will be playing at great venues to a lot of people. What's the problem??? We could have gone out on our own headline tour and some of you may not have liked the bands we chose to take with us so it proves yet again — that you just can't please everyone! Why not just enjoy the fact that you will see the band at a great venue instead of bitching all of the time!"
