OZZY OSBOURNE And ZAKK WYLDE Reunite For 2017 Tour

Artist: 
 
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
 
August
Wed, August 9    Sturgis, SD          Buffalo Chip
Mon, August 21   Cartersville, IL    Moonstock Festival

‘Memoirs Of A Madman’ Audio And Video Collections Celebrate The Legacy Of OZZY OSBOURNE

Artist: 
‘MEMOIRS OF A MADMAN’
AUDIO AND VIDEO COLLECTIONS
CELEBRATE THE LEGACY OF
OZZY OSBOURNE
 
SINGLE CD, TWO DVD SET, 180 GM DOUBLE VINYL AND LIMITED EDITION PICTURE DISC VINYL
 
DUE OUT OCTOBER 7
ON EPIC RECORDS/LEGACY RECORDINGS
 
PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE NOW AT AMAZON
 
This October, the career of rock icon OZZY OSBOURNE will be celebrated with the Epic Records/Legacy Recordings MEMOIRS OF A MADMAN collections.
Due out October 7, MEMOIRS OF A MADMAN (CD) serves as a career spanning audio release, featuring 17 of OZZY’s greatest hit singles compiled in one place for the first time in his career and will be available in a single CD, two-LP set and two-LP picture disc set configurations.  Pre-order now available at Amazon.
 
The MEMOIRS OF A MADMAN (DVD) is a definitive visual two-disc DVD set which includes classic music videos, along with unreleased and out-of-print live performances, plus interviews from his solo career.  Both sets offer fans of the multi-platinum recording artist, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and three-time Grammy® winning singer and songwriter hours of entertainment from OZZY’s distinguished solo career.  Pre-order also available at Amazon.
On July 22, fans got a sneak peek of MEMOIRS OF A MADMAN via Twitter. By using #OzzyRules in accordance with the number of tweets, engaged fans were able to unscramble the cover artwork and unlock a video teaser (http://smarturl.it/ozzy_memoirs_teaser).
 
In addition, an exclusive AUTOGRAPHED limited edition fan bundle will be available (http://myplay.me/1abf).  This includes an autographed poster, 2 DVD set, CD, 2 LP picture disc vinyl, along with a Creative Allies fan designed poster, which will feature an image personally chosen by OZZY (Http://creativeallies.com/contests/977-create-artwork-for-ozzy-osbourne).
 
 
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
10. Road To Nowhere
11. Perry Mason
12. I Just Want You
13. Gets Me Through
14. Dreamer
15. I Don’t Wanna Stop
16. Life Won’t Wait
17. Let Me Hear You Scream
 
Details on the Memoirs of a Madman 2 DVD are as follows:
 
DVD One features more than two dozen of OZZY’s classic and unforgettable  music videos from across his discography, including a bonus alternate version of “Mama, I’m Coming Home” and making-of footage from the videos “Let Me Hear You Scream” and “Life Won’t Wait.”
 
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.
