OZZY OSBOURNE ANNOUNCES FIRST ARENA SHOWS IN THE UK IN EIGHT YEARS
OZZY OSBOURNE is starting a European tour in September with two UK headlining shows.
The dates are:
Friday, September 5 WEMBLEY ARENA
Sunday, September 7 BIRMINGHAM NEC
Both shows will be OZZY'S first solo headlining shows in the UK in eight years and will feature another singing OSBOURNE, OZZY'S daughter KELLY, who will be the opening act. These shows mark the first time that OZZY and KELLY have ever performed on the same stage.
The four-band bill will also feature the massive Finnish band H.I.M. and multi-platinum U.S. band GODSMACK.
Says Ozzy: 'I couldn't be happier about doing my own dates in the UK and having KELLY on the bill with me. Unfortunately, this means that we won't be bringing Ozzfest to the UK this year. When we realised we couldn't get the best bill possible due to many of the bands having previous commitments I decided that this would be a great opportunity to bring my full stage show over to rock the UK!'
