[Ozzy] Osbourne started out his [headlining] set with “I Don’t Know,” “Mr. Crowley,” and “Bark at the Moon.” He sprayed the crowd with a fire hose throughout the night, dumped a bucket of water on his head twice and repeatedly asked the audience if they were having fun. “I can’t f—ing hear you,” he kept saying, smiling when the crowd responded with cheers. This was the 66-year-old’s first solo performance in several years.
“Iron Man” was a crowd favorite, with Morello, Slash and Butler joining Osbourne on the stage. Morello’s guitar had a sign reading “Ozzy Rules”on the back with “Arm the Homeless” on the front.
Two Smurfs made out in the Loa VIP section, blue falling down their faces with the rain as Butler performed an impressive bass solo during “N.I.B.” [BILLBOARD]
The rain hit hard in New Orleans on Halloween, which made for a very soggy Day 2 of the 2015 Voodoo Fest, but spirits didn’t seem to be too dampened as people enjoyed sets from Ozzy Ozbourne (with Geezer Butler, Slash and Tom Morello), Jane’s Addiction, Babes in Toyland, Django Django, Peaches, Santigold, Public Image Limited, The Growlers and more. Pictures from Saturday are in this post, though unfortunately none of Ozzy’s supergroup, but you can check out his setlist below.
Over in the comparatively dry tent that was the Toyota Music Den (which was co-curated by us) there were performances and Q&As featuring Django Django, Babes in Toyland, and more..
The final day of Voodoo Fest (11/1) was canceled due to worsening weather (and tornado warnings), but there ended up being an all-star jam at New Orleans spot 30/90 on Sunday night featuring Dumpstaphunk, Fishbone, Lettuce, Ludlow Thieves and other Voodoo acts.
Pics from day 1 are HERE. More from Voodoo Fest’s rainy Halloween and the Ozzy setlist, below…
