QOTSA begins the Ozzfest tour on the second stage at the Coral Sky (Mars) in West Palm Beach, FL. The band hated this tour for the most part, due to the ungodly early afternoon hour at which they played and the abundance of rap-metal. As a result (or perhaps to make more money), they did their damndest to play at a small club or bar on every odd date (since all Ozzfest dates, with the exception of one, were on even-numbered days). The Ozzfest tour ended for them a full two months later on September 2, 2000, at the Glen Helen Blockbuster Pavilion in San Bernardino, CA. Their club tour ended the following evening at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA.
