Rob Halford

Rob Halford is not a fan of idle hands.  While Judas Priest takes a short hiatus, their leading man is heading out on the 2010 Ozzfest Tour with his band Halford, sharing the stage with Ozzy Osborne and Motley Crue.  Halford will be performing original music along with some songs from Rob’s Fight era and of course some Judas Priest tunes. Confirming that Halford is his priority right now, the band recently offered up their new single “The Mower”.

When he’s not holding court as the reigning Metal God, Rob Halford has his hands full with his own record label, and clothing line.  I guess when you’ve been at it for over forty years, these things just come naturally.  But do these extra-curricular activities point towards Halford hanging up his mic for good any time soon?  Never – according to Halford “Performing is like a drug to me, I just can’t stop doing it.” 

TWRY recently talked to Rob about Ozzfest, being on the other side of the record business with his label Metal God Records, and of course the late, great Ronnie James Dio.

OZZFest returns this August in six American cities with a bill co-headlined by OZZY and, in their first-ever OZZFest appearance, Mötley Crüe–touring together for the first time with OZZY since he invited the group on their now legendary 1984 arena tour. 

The 2010 OZZFest–back after taking a year off in 2009 and the 2008 one-off stadium spectacular in Dallas, TX –will kick off August 14 in San Bernardino (the birthplace of the first OZZFest in 1996) and then make stops in Chicago, IL, Hartford, CT, Camden, NJ, Pittsburgh, PA and Boston, MA.  Live Nation will promote the tour nationally.

The main stage will feature full sets from Ozzy, Mötley Crüe and Rob Halford (who last appeared on OZZFest in 2004 with Judas Priest), performing songs from his solo career along with material from Judas Priest and Fight.  DevilDriver and Nonpoint will round out the main stage line-up.  Second stage headliners and six-time OZZFest veterans Black Label Society will be joined by Drowning Pool, Kingdom of Sorrow, and Goatwhore, Skeletonwitch, Saviours and Kataklysm.

Each OZZFest date will include 13 bands on two stages with music beginning at 1:00 PM. In addition, 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.
