After a 10 year break, Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde are hitting the tour circuit again. A big shout of ‘Hell Yeah!’ inserted here for all Ozzy and Zakk fans!
Zakk first joined Ozzy’s band in 1987 and it’s been a kindred partnership ever since.
There have been some shows during the decade hiatus, but this is the first collaborative work since Ozzy’s Black Rain album in 2007. It is also the first solo tour for Ozzy in the U.S. despite one performance in New Orleans in late 2015. And the timing couldn’t be better, the summer concert season is perfect for a knock out dual act.
The guys will be joined by seasoned bandmates Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards). The tour starts July 14th at the Rock USA Festival in Oshkosh, WI. And don’t worry, more dates are soon to be added.
Ozzy and Zakk are obviously thrilled to be working and performing together again, that much is obvious. And, this is all leading up to Ozzy’s highly anticipated next album, due out next year on Epic Records. Heavy metal lives on and its led to the mecca by Ozzy himself!
