Byzantine - Official Statement

Byzantine have posted the following message on their official website regarding dropping off the International Extreme Music Tour:

"OK. Just so everyone knows exactly what is going on with us, here is why we are not doing the IEMF tour. We were screwed by Jeffrey Churchwell at Digger International. There we no internal problems with the band. Yes, OJ had a death in the family. That’s not the issue. No, no one in the band is addicted to anything. We were fully prepared to do this tour. We have signed contracts with the venues. We just ordered new merchandise. We were in the process of securing more reliable transportation for the tour. In short, we have been taking all the steps necessary to do this tour. I will state this again clearly: We were screwed by Jeffrey Churchwell at Digger International. That is why we’re not on the tour.

Stating that there were “circumstances beyond our control” is nothing but PC horseshit.

We did two tours previously for Jeffrey. This first was with GIZMACHI prior to their Ozzfest tour. It was crap. It was originally going to be with SIX FEET UNDER as a headliner, but Chris Barnes is a dick and didn’t want to tour with us or GIZMACHI. So he dropped it and took another tour. Since Jeffrey already had the shows booked, he sent us out anyway. Only he didn’t send new contracts. That’s right, BYZANTINE and our boys in GIZMACHI did an entire US tour with void contracts. Naturally, he never bothered to tell us this until we were already on the road.

The second tour was the one we completed yesterday with our new friends HELL WITHIN. Now we did our homework and budgeted and new full well that this was a bullshit tour. We’re talking horrible routing, very low guarantees, and no headliner. There was no way we were going to be able to afford to do it. But, Jeffrey told BYZANTINE that if we didn’t do it, he would kick us off the IEMF tour. He essentially held us hostage and made us do a shitty tour in order to for us to be on IEMF.

Driving home two days after completing the shows he booked (he routed us to Portland and let us figure out how to drive 2500 miles home with no money), he tells us we’re kicked off of the IEMF tour. The kicker is that he gave us no reason. He just said we’re off. We held up our end of the bargain and did these shit tours and then he screwed us.

Now we don’t know if there was some sort of political pissing match going on somewhere that caused this and we don’t care. We got hosed and I, for one, am hungry for payback. If you’re reading this, take the time to repost it anywhere and everywhere. Fuck Jeffrey Churchwell and Fuck Digger International! If you happen to live in the Chicago area (where Digger is based) and have a baseball bat……….. And if you happen to know anyone in the music industry who understands the word “ethics” (I know that might be stretch), please give them our CD.

Iron Maiden Pelted With Eggs At Ozzfest

The following report was posted by

"Last night's(Sunday night) headlining performance of IRON MAIDEN at Ozzfest in San Bernardino CA rendered some interesting if not disturbing results. Although MAIDEN played one hell of a show they were under attack from the moment they began their set. From the time they hit the stage they suffered power loss on at least three occasions and they were continuously pelted with ice, bottle caps, and eggs among other things. Vocalist Bruce Dickinson was even spit on by one attendee. He seemed to believe these occurrences were not by accident and insinuated that they had been planned from the beginning of the night. He also encouraged the other audience members to break the arm of anyone that they saw throwing things their way. Upon concluding their performance the Emcee for the evening began to chant Ozzy, Ozzy while Bruce was still speaking. Bruce retaliated by chanting MAIDEN. After he left the stage Sharon Osbourne took over the mic and informed the crowd that they absolutely loved IRON MAIDEN and their crew and stated that they were all wonderful but that their singer Bruce Dickinson was a prick and had disrespected Ozzfest since they began their stint with the touring summer festival. This of course came as a shock to those of us in attendance and the there was ample confusion and speculation from audience members there after. As previously announced last night's show marked the final performance of IRON MAIDEN on this year's Ozzfest. VELVET REVOLVER will be taking over their slot on the last remaining dates."

Sharon Osbourne has posted the following message on the website:

"IRON MAIDEN were chosen for the Ozzfest tour because the Ozzfest committee felt they were a good band, plus the fact that they had not done shows in the U.S. for some time. From day one, Bruce Dickinson started berating Ozzy and belittling the Ozzfest audience. He stated he"didn’t need a reality show to give him credibility"; "we're not just some f*cking reunion band"; and continuously complained about the sound system, saying that when he comes back to America he’ll have a better one. I understand he hasn’t toured in the these size venues in a while and no longer understands the political structure of things. Out of 200-plus bands over the last 10 years, he has been the only person who hasn’t had the Ozzfest spirit. He thought he was at a battle of the bands, always making other comments about the other artists.

Might I say, the rest of the band are gentlemen and have a great professional attitude. The crew are absolutely great. But how sad it was, after 10 years, that this little man tried to ruin it for everyone. The bands of Ozzfest don’t even look at Ozzfest as touring, but as its heavy metal summer camp. Bruce is in fact a jealous prick and very envious. None of his tirades were directed at SABBATH, only Ozzy. Steve Harris [IRON MAIDEN's bassist] personally came to Ozzy in San Bernardino and apologized for Bruce’s behavior this summer, stating that he and the rest of the band were "embarrassed" by their own singer.
It also offended me every night how he took out the English flag in America. There are American boys going to war alongside the English boys every day. How dare he forget the American troops on their home turf. He has had no respect for the American audience he has been playing for, stating in an interview, "When you do the 'hits' tour here [in the U.S.], the audience is smug, and there's a sense of self-satisfaction, like, 'We got what we wanted…I'm looking at an audience that is self-satisfied and happy and fat, and getting what it wants and isn't prepared to get off its ass..

Before there was Samson there was SABBATH!

Ozzfest 2005 continues on with our summer of fun with the addition of VELVET REVOLVER This is where the fun begins….. "

And the following response was posted on the official Iron Maiden homepage:

"IRON MAIDEN wish to thank all the 45,000 Metal fans at Ozzfest in San Bernardino on Saturday night for sticking with us and giving us such a great response at the end of a difficult set. It was obvious to all there that we had a 'series of unfortunate events' throughout! These made it difficult for us to keep our momentum but your incredible support certainly helped us get through it. We guess it all adds up to a pretty memorable gig though!!!

This is, however, a Metal Festival. It is supposed to be fun for all. You fans pay very good money to be there and deserve to get a full and unhindered performance from all the bands. This was not the case last night.

So with this rather bizarre end to a good tour we are returning to the UK today for the Leeds and Reading Festivals and once again thanks to all of you who came out to see us these last few weeks."
