Not stopping at giving free tickets, 's "Ozzfest" will now upgrade the seats. Announcing the good news, Ozzy's wife informed that 3,000 tickets for each of the 24 dates will offer pavilion spots and seats that are placed on the stage.
Sharon explained, "On the day of the show you can get to different booths, enter a lottery and get upgraded. We'll be upgrading throughout the day, 3,000 people. That's a lot of people to upgrade." The show that will kick off July 12 in Auburn, Wash. will start later than previous years. The door will be officially opened at 10.30 A.M. and therefore those who want to get their tickets upgraded must come earlier than that.
