Judas Priest replacing Ozzy Osbourne at Power Trip festival.

After Ozzy Osbourne pulled out of Goldenvoice's new hard rock and heavy metal festival, Power Trip, he said he'd be replaced by "personal friends of mine and I can promise that you will not be disappointed," to be "announced shortly." There's still been no official word from the festival, but Billboard reports that Judas Priest will be taking Ozzy's place, performing on Saturday, October 7 at Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA, aka the Coachella grounds. UPDATE: The festival has now confirmed the change, and you can see the updated poster below.

This is the first show Judas Priest, who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in November, are announcing for 2023; they do have Europe and UK dates lined up for 2024 as well. See those below.

AC/DC also play Power Trip on Saturday, and the lineup also features Guns N' Roses and Iron Maiden on Friday (10/6), and Metallica and Tool on Sunday (10/8).

Ozzy cited health issues in pulling out of the fest, writing, "Unfortunately, my body is telling me that I’m just not ready yet and I am much too proud to have the first show that I do in nearly five years be half-assed."

Pick up Judas Priest vinyl and merch in the BV store.
