OZZFEST 2006: Tour Routing Revealed

Sources close to the Ozzfest organization have told MTV.com that there had been discussions with both the KORN and METALLICA camps for the headlining slot at this year's festival, but that those talks were informal and never got passed the initial negotiations. A SEPULTURA reunion, featuring original frontman Max Cavalera, was also in the works, but the trigger was never pulled. TOOL and MARILYN MANSON were also considered.

Although it has not yet been confirmed, it is believed that the last remaining main-stage band to be officially announced is AVENGED SEVENFOLD.
