AN ALTERNATIVE TO OZZY

The unspoken words here, of course, are "it's one without Sharon in charge", as Slayer announce their plans for a tour a bit like Ozzfest:

Dubbed the Unholy Alliance Tour, the trek will make stops in most major cities, although the actual routing of the run is still being fleshed out. Either way King's anxious to hit the road again.

"It's been 18 months since we've toured in the States," he explained. "People are going to be chomping at the bit to see us again. Our initial thought [with Unholy Alliance] was to go up against Ozzfest, because I think that tour's getting a little bit tired and I think people are tired of going out and getting sunburned for hours every summer. Every place we play is going to be indoors, with a good-sized lineup. We're certainly not going to try to make Ozzfest go away. We're just trying to offer an alternative."


That's indoors, then - which is nice for the fans. And no Sharon, which is nice for the bands.
