Godsmack Hit the Road

Sabbath progeny Godsmack play own tour before joining Ozzfest
Posted May 12, 2000 at 12:00am
Having yet to get their Ozzy fill, former Black Sabbath openers Godsmack are taking a second round on the Ozzfest metal melee this summer, but not before they head out for a short jaunt of their own. Since they hit some of the same venues in the process, it almost seems unnecessary for Godsmack to hook up with the summer festival circuit -- but the Ozzy lure proved too strong.

"Every time you see Ozzy or any of them, you're just like, 'It's Sabbath,'" lead singer Sully Erna told Rolling Stone.

Godsmack's summer tour dates are:

5/11-12: San Antonio, TX, Sunken Garden Amphitheater
5/13: Tulsa, OK, Riverpark Amphitheater
5/14: Little Rock, AR, Riverfest Amphitheater
5/15: Springfield, MO, Remmington's
5/17: Wichita, KS, Cotillion Ballroom
5/20: Las Vegas, NV, Sam Boyd Stadium
5/26: Somerset, WI, Float Rite Park
5/27: Foxboro, MA, Foxboro Stadium
5/28: Landover, MD, Fed Ex Field
5/29: Indianapolis, IN, Deer Creek Music Center
5/31: Des Moines, IA, Super Toads
6/2: Oklahoma City, OK, All-Sport Stadium
6/3: Kansas City, KS, Sandstone Amphitheater
6/4: Omaha, NE, Westfair Amphitheater
6/17: Anaheim, CA, Edison Field
