Ozzy Hits The Tube, The Road A

- advertisement -
Ozzy Osbourne is touring Japan, Korea, Alaska, Canada...in the middle of winter, no less! There's no showman out there like Ozzy, and he's not daunted by the elements. The Ozzman is currently in Japan, playing to sold-out audiences during his first tour there in four years. The climax will be a show at Budokan, where a live album and DVD taping will take place for summer release. (Of course, the package will be called Live At Budokan, and the CD will also feature unreleased b-sides from the Down To Earth sessions.) Then Ozzy will play his first shows ever in Korea, then heading back to the U.S.A. for gigs in Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska. After that, Ozzy will take well-deserved week off and then return to the road for two weeks in Canada.

In addition, Ozzy will headline Ozzfest once again this year, with System of a Down performing before him and a slew of others acts yet to be announced. However, what you may not know is that Ozzfest is coming to Europe this summer too! Yes, Castle Donington looks to be the place for Ozzfest U.K. this time around, and other shows on the continent are being looked into. The lineup will be different that the U.S., but at this time there's no confirmed acts other than Ozzy and System of a Down for the U.K. edition.

In other Ozzy news, you can watch a video of Ozzy and Sharon’s new reality show The Osbournes, go to http://www.mtv.com/onair/osbournes. The series premieres March 5th at 10:30pm ET. There's no script, the situations are real, the family is normal...well, sort of.
