Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE earlier today (February 6) revealed details about his forthcoming "NO MORE TOURS 2," a reference to his 1992 "No More Tours" trek.  The announcement by the legendary musical icon about the North American dates--with his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards)--was made to international media in attendance at his Los Angeles home.
 
The initial North American dates produced by Live Nation kick off August 30 in Allentown, PA and conclude October 13 in Las Vegas, NV with a Thursday, October 11 stop at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles; OZZY will be joined by Stone Sour for this leg of the tour.  Tickets for these shows go on sale to the general public starting Saturday, February 17 at 10:00 AM (local time) at LiveNation.com and through the Live Nation app.  Citi® is the official presale credit card of the tour. As such, Citi® cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning Wednesday, February 14 at 10:00 AM (local time) until Friday, February 16 at 10:00 PM (local time) through Citi's Private Pass® program. For complete presale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.
 
Prior to the full North American run, OZZY will officially launch the "NO MORE TOURS 2" in Mexico in May, before heading to South America for solo shows in three countries.  Next up, a six-week European leg of headlining solo dates and festival performances that's set to begin Friday, June 1 in Moscow, Russia.
 
"I've been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers," OSBOURNE says.  "I'm looking at this final tour as being a huge celebration for my fans and anyone who has enjoyed my music over the past five decades."
 
On his upcoming farewell world tour, produced by Live Nation, OSBOURNE will celebrate more than five decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath which formed in 1968).  This tour, expected to take OZZY around the world with dates into 2020, will mark the end of global touring for the legendary artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows in the future.  Throughout his career, OZZY has sold more than 100 million records.
 
Want to hear more about the OZZY tour from the Prince of Darkness himself?  OZZY has partnered with Ticketmaster to spread the word about the tour with a new message on the Ticketmaster app for the Google Assistant on phones, speakers like Google Home and other compatible devices. Fans can trigger the app by saying, "Hey Google, talk to Ticketmaster," which will offer special messages from the Prince of Darkness himself. Fans will then be invited by Sharon Osbourne to hear details about OZZY's upcoming Live Nation tour dates. This new marketing tool expands the ways for OZZY's millions of fans to find out about his tour and provides a fun, first of its kind experience.

For the tour, OZZY has teamed with the LOVE, HOPE, STRENGTH, FOUNDATION.  At Love Hope Strength (LHS), their mission is to save lives, one concert at a time.  We, along with Love Hope Strength, believe that all people deserve quality cancer care, a marrow donor if needed, and most importantly, hope.  Founded by cancer survivors, LHS leverages the power of music to expand the marrow registry through THEIR "Get on the List" campaign.  At LHS, they believe in offering real hope to people currently living with cancer.

OZZY OSBOURNE And ZAKK WYLDE Reunite For 2017 Tour

Artist: 
Categories: 
 
Rock fans rejoice!
 
For the first time in more than a decade, OZZY OSBOURNE and Zakk Wylde are together again. 
 
Known as one of rock's most lethal singer and guitarist pairings, the two will hit the road for a series of OZZY headlining shows in the U.S. this summer and fall, beginning July 14 (*see dates below).  While they've performed together over the years, these shows are the first collaboration for the duo for a full tour since 2006.  These dates also mark OZZY's first solo tour in the U.S. in years beyond one OZZY & Friends performance at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans, LA in October 2015. 
 
OZZY and Zakk first teamed up 30 years ago when Zakk (who OZZY describes as "a f***ing absolutely amazing guitar player") joined OZZY's band in 1987; they last recorded in 2007 on OZZY's acclaimed BLACK RAIN album. 
 
In addition to reuniting with Zakk Wylde on guitar, OZZY's band will include longtime collaborators Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards)OZZY's tour dates kick off in July at the Rock USA Festival in Oshkosh, WI with additional dates to be announced in the coming weeks. 
 
"I'm so happy to be getting back on the road with Zakk, Blasko, Tommy and Adam," says OZZY OSBOURNE.  "This is what I do.  This is where I belong, on the road."
 
"I'm really looking forward to The HARDCORE POWAHLIFTING TRAINING SESSIONS with OZZY as well as playing music in between sets of HEAVY SQUATS, BENCHING and DEADLIFTS," Zakk Wylde adds.
 
Next up for OZZY: prepping for a new solo album for 2018 on Epic.
 
OZZY's initial 2017 tour dates are as follows:
 
July
Fri, July 14         Oshkosh, WI       Rock USA Festival
Sun, July 16       Chicago, IL         Chicago Open Air Festival

OZZY OSBOURNE Storms America With Blizzard of Ozz 35 Years Ago

Artist: 
Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Categories: 

Dallas, TX - March 15, 2016. North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  hosts Ozzy Osbourne on the 35th anniversary of his best-selling solo debut Blizzard of Ozz.
 
Having been fired by Britain's heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath, by 1980 Ozzy Osbourne was, for all practical purposes, washed up. Ozzy found himself with low self esteem and a raging drug and alcohol problem. If not for the heroic actions of his then-manager and future wife Sharon Arden, Ozzy would never have been offered the chance to clean up his act and hold auditions for a new band, where he discovered a diminutive 25-year old guitarist, Randy Rhoads, who inspired Osbourne.
 
After waiting nearly six months for Blizzard of Ozz to be released in the US, Ozzy's 'Crazy Train' nearly derailed his solo career with two of the most notorious incidents ever in rock history, including a shocking stunt in a record company conference room involving a live dove. Ozzy explains to InTheStudio host Redbeard what happened.
 
'So Sharon (manager) says to me 'We've got to make an impression.' She says, 'I want you to go into the board room, take these two doves, and throw them up in the air as a peace offering.' So, I drank a bottle of booze in the morning and said, 'I'll make an impression.'  - Ozzy Osbourne.
 
Nevertheless Osbourne would end up selling over four million copies in the US alone while helping to define the '80s pop-metal movement with classics 'Crazy Train', 'Mr. Crowley', 'I Don't Know' , and 'Suicide Solution'.  Additionally in this interview, Ozzy makes a passionate plea for anyone struggling with substance abuse to seek free help.
 
Ozzy Osbourne 'Blizzard of Ozz' / InTheStudio interview program is available now to STREAM at: http://www.inthestudio.net/redbeards-blog/ozzy-osbourne-blizzard-ozz-35th-anniversary/

OSBOURNE's ongoing solo career spans four decades--as both a successful solo artist and as the lead singer of Black Sabbath--and his music is as relevant today as ever; it still resonates daily on TV, in movies, on radio and at stadium sports events. OZZY’s latest solo release--his tenth studio album, 2010’s Scream--debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard charts, featuring the No. 1 Mainstream Rock smash “Let Me Hear You Scream.”
 
From the first notes of OZZY’s 1980’s solo debut Blizzard Of Ozz and follow-up Diary Of A Madman to classic albums No More Tears and Scream, no hard rock solo artist has had quite the same reach as OZZY; his distinctive vocal delivery and larger than life onstage persona quickly endeared him to millions of rockers.  OZZY immediately had the attention of fans of heavy music with rock staples “Crazy Train,” “Mr. Crowley” and “Flying High Again.”  With the 1991 release No More Tears, OZZY continued his radio success with acclaimed and hugely successful singles “No More Tears” and the smash hit “Mama, I'm Coming Home.”
 
The track list is as follows:
1. Crazy Train
2. Mr. Crowley
3. Flying High Again
4. Over The Mountain
5. Bark At The Moon
6. The Ultimate Sin
7. Miracle Man
8. No More Tears (edit)
9. Mama, I’m Coming Home

12. I Just Want You

DVD Two features live performances and interview clips spanning OZZY’s solo journey, much of which makes its debut on DVD. Some selections have appeared on long out-of-print VHS releases; others will be seen here for the first time, making this an essential package for fans old and new. OZZY’s union of music and visuals could not be more perfect, and the Memoirs Of A Madman DVD showcases that to brilliant effect.
