Ozzy Osborne Announces First Post-Black Sabbath Solo Show

Black Sabbath’s “final show” is quickly approaching — February 4, 2017 in Birmingham, U.K. to be exact. But while Black Sabbath could be over, that hasn’t stopped Ozzy Osbourne from continuing on his solo career.

Osborne will be delivering a headlining set at this year’s Chicago Open Air festival which takes place between July 14-16 at Toyota Park in Highland, Ill. The line up also consists of Kiss, Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Anthrax, Korn and Godsmack. Chicago Open Air will have single-day passes starting at $50 and VIP passes starting at $425.

Osborne also let slip that there’s solo material coming with with Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens. Osborne said ““He’s not gonna be in my band; he’s with Billy Idol. … I said, ‘I’ve got some ideas,’ and we worked it out.

“I don’t want to say when, because I can’t be working this other thing and my own thing at the same time.”

Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has also come forward with some interesting news about the possibility of one-off performances in the future.

“I wouldn’t write that off, if one day that came about,” he recently said. “That’s possible. Or even doing an album. [Of] course, then, again, you’re in one place. But I don’t know if that would happen.”

What would make you more excited? New Black Sabbath or new solo Ozzy? While Randy Rhoads is one of my most respected guitarists, I’m firmly in the new Black Sabbath camp.

  1. I’d like to see Ozzy try a different style… Imagine him doing some great covers like Johnny Cash did when he got older.
