Ozzy Osbourne Announces First Solo Date After Black Sabbath Finale
Black Sabbath singer and solo artist Ozzy Osbourne is definitely the kind of guy who seems to want to keep himself busy. The past few years he has been touring relentlessly with Black Sabbath, but next month they are going to play their absolute last concert ever. That said, Osbourne has already announced his first performance post-Sabbath finale. The first solo concert in a while considering how much his solo career has taken the back burner since things with Black Sabbath kicked off again in recent years.
The performance will take place at Chicago's Open Air Festival at Toyota Park in Highland, IL. The festival will be happening July 14-16 with single day passes starting at $50 and VIP packages at $425.
Osbourne's performance will take place on Sunday the 16th, where he will be the headlining act of the day. Other notable bands on the bill will be Megadeth, Slayer, Godsmack, Korn, Kiss, Rob Zombie, Godsmack, and countless more.
At this point there is nothing for certain on whether or not Osbourne is working on a new solo LP, but there have been rumours going around that he has been working on stuff with Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens which if true could definitely lead to something wicked cool. It would definitely be a vast improvement over the past two or three solo LP's he has put out.
