Update: Judas Priest is replacing Ozzy

Power trip festival (which has nothing to do with the now defunct Powertrip band) was scheduled for October 2023 in Indio. Bands slated to play include Guns n Roses, Ac/Dc, Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Tool.

Ozzy Osbourne was also scheduled to play, but he has pulled out of the festival. You can read his statement below.

Tickets start at $600 and run up to more than $1700.

Ozzy Statement“As painful as this is, I’ve had to make the decision to bow out of performing on Power Trip in October. My original plan was to return to the stage in the summer of 2024, and when the offer to do this show came in, I optimistically moved forward.

Unfortunately, my body is telling me that I’m just not ready yet and I am much too proud to have the first show that I do in nearly five years be half-assed. The band that will be replacing me on Power Trip will be announced shortly. They are personal friends of mine and I can promise that you will not be disappointed.

Above all, I want to thank my fans, my band, and my crew for their unconditional loyalty and continual support.

I love you all and I will see you soon.

God Bless,
