Ozzfest 2007: A Headbangers' ball

Under a blazing sun, thousands of fans soaked up all the free metal they could handle at the 2007 edition of Ozzfest on Saturday at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.

The music started after noon, and by about 4 p.m. the Verizon appeared at least three-quarters full, with long lines of cars backed up on the roads leading to the venue.

The roar of the crowd was deafening when Ozzy Osbourne, dressed in black pants and shirt, stepped on stage at about 9:23 p.m. and uttered his familiar slogan: "I can't (expletive) hear you." The more he repeated it, the louder they got. Everyone was on their feet, even the sea of humanity on the expansive grassy berm, as Ozzy opened with a set that included the hits "Bark at the Moon" and "Mr. Crowley."

"We came to see Ozzy but we also wanted to see Static-X. We've been fans of them for about seven years," said Coby Dickerson, 21, who drove in from Orange with his girlfriend. "It was either Dallas or here. The tour was not coming to Houston."

Dickerson said he snapped up tickets online as soon as they became available. For the first time, the heavy metal festival was free this year.

Ozzfest Tickets Bought From Scalpers

"I bought my ticket online for $40," a sunburned Will Wartes said. "I heard the tickets were free, but they were gone by the time I found out. I came to see Ozzy but also Static-X."

Making the day sweeter for metal fans was a last-minute decision by Live Nation to cancel the $20 parking fee announced Wednesday. That was double the usual amount charged for concerts at the amphitheater.
