All three acts posted a festival teaser on their official social media
A brand new rock and heavy metal music festival is set to make its debut. Goldenvoice, the company behind Coachella, Stagecoach, Cruel World, and more will be adding Power Trip to their portfolio. The festival will most likely take place in California later this year, or in 2024.
According to their respective official social media pages, Metallica, Iron Maiden, and Ozzy Osbourne are confirmed as headliners. If the rest of the lineup fills out well, Power Trip could rival many of the Danny Wimmer Presents festivals like Sonic Temple, Louder Than Life, Aftershock, and more.
The full lineup will be announced this Thursday, March 30.
After announcing his retirement from touring back in February, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ozzy Osbourne has recently expressed his desire to still perform at some capacity in the future. Commercially, Ozzy is enjoying the fruits of his widely successful album Patient No. 9. He won two GRAMMY® Awards at the 65th annual event in Los Angeles last month. He took home the hardware for Best Metal Performance and Best Rock Album. It marked the metal legend’s first solo GRAMMY® win since 1994 when he won Best Metal Performance for “I Don’t Wanna Change the World (Live & Loud).
“I’m one lucky motherfucker to have won the Best Rock Album Grammy,” the now a five-time GRAMMY® Award winner exclaimed. “I was blessed to work with some of the greatest musicians in the world and Andrew Watt as my producer on this album. Winning the Best Metal Performance was equally gratifying being that the song featured my longtime friend and Black Sabbath bandmate, Tony Iommi.”
Metallica’s upcoming eleventh studio LP 72 Seasons arrives on April 14 via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track 72 Seasons is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. The album will be released in formats including 2LP 140-gram black vinyl and limited edition variants, CD and digital download.
Additionally, Metallica are returning to the road this summer. The band previously announced their M72 Word Tour which will see the band perform back-to-back nights at each stop with no repeat performances. In each city, special guests on Night One will be Pantera and Mammoth WVH. Five Finger Death Punch and Ice Nine Kills will serve as support on Night 2. Tickets are on sale now HERE.
Iron Maiden brought their Legacy of the Beast Tour back to North American last year for another massive run. The band’s latest album Senjutsu arrived in 2021. The album peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock and Top Hard Rock Albums charts.
