For those of us who had to forego the more expensive seats in light of our additional expenses (3 days vs 1 off work, 2 days travel, overnight accomodations), wouldn't it be just the $hitz if there were a few people lucky enough to be winners of an upgraded package for meet & greet or a picture with Ozzy? That would be awesome. wishful thinkin' lol. just can't get over that I can't fork it out. who can when they are a single parent. this is even more than i should be spending.

ahhh. y'all just paid already for those good seats. it' be cool if they did surprise a lawn or five. to take the seats they bump up the middle crowd to. ya know. ha ha ha....just kidding. but all of you that do get a pic with the Ozzman, give him a hug (or in the case of you non-homosexual males a 'yo or 'whaddup) for me. ~*

This has actually happened in the past. People have won pit passes/seat upgrades from the games in the Village of the Damned as well as people have randomly been upgraded from lawn to pit passes just walking around on the lawn so it is possible.

Yup, Happend At Our Venue In 05 And 07, Most Seats Were Empty,
(Except Pit And Lawn...No Suprise There!) Ozzy's Intro Came On Screen,
Then Afterwords The Lights Went Out And Just As Soon As They Went Back On...
All The Sudden EVERY DANG SEAT WAS FILLED TO THE BRIM!!! (No Joke!)
Of Couse, My Rule-Abiding Retard Self Was Still In Middle Of Lawn...WHY???  :-[ :-[

Yeah that would be a great idea.  They do upgrades at sporting events alot, why not concerts, and why not start with Ozzfest?  I mean aside from the backstage handouts to hot chicks, there isn't an official upgrade contest or raffle.  That's what I would do.  Everyone who has bought a ticket can throw their name in a hat or something and someone picks a few lucky winners.  Pretty simple I think.
See you in the darkness wanker!

howzabout this?

all of us loyal, long-suffering ozzfest regulars should wear something very specific like a HELLO! MY OZZFEST NAME IS;  stickers and we should be snatched up and escorted to the VIP skydecks suspended high above the seating area (at least it is at Tinley), where we will be handed a nice cold beer and treated like royalty.

or,

when we jumped onto this new site, we had to register our personal information including our home addresses.  about a week before the show, we should receive in the mail a laminated pass that says, "KISS MY ASS!  I'M AN OZZFEST REGULAR!" which will give us discount prices on merchandise and beer.  and get us snatched up and escorted to the VIP skydecks, etc...

seriously. the music is posted a week ahead of time, so what does a download a day early then mean. then tickets are reduced in price a couple weeks after we bend over and take it up the pipe full price. then tickets are radically reduced like that.

man! i think we should get a laminate, autographed by the man hisself, for our love and fandom.

Actually, upgrades are pretty common at concerts.  At the last Ozzfest at San Manuel there was a booth set up for people with lawn tix to get upgraded to pavilion seats.  At Cruefest last year at San Manuel you could go to a booth show them your ticket and get an upgrade for $10.  And right before almost every show, if you go to the box office before it starts, and they have tickets available, you can pay the difference between what you have and what's available and improve your seat. 

Before a lot of shows, passes, house tickets and press tickets that are going unused will be put on sale.  Upgrades are almost always available if you are willing to pay the difference.
