Ozzy Osbourne coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa
At what point does Ozzy Osbourne go from being the Prince of Darkness to the King of Darkness? There must be some sort of law of succession to these sorts of things, right?
Whatever. All we care about today is that Ozzy Osbourne is coming to Tampa. The legendary Black Sabbath frontman/World of Warcraft spokesperson is coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in 2011, his people announced today. The show is scheduled for Feb. 18, so guys, we're thinking this is a perfect Valentine's Day gift for the lovely lady in your life. There are no details yet on tickets.
According to the release, Slash, "Ozzy's longtime friend and musical collaborator," will open all the shows on this particular leg of the tour, including the Tampa date.
Though Ozzy is getting up there in years, and he's probably used up 10 of his nine lives, this probably isn't a proper farewell tour. Ozzy's already had one of those -- the No More Tours Tour -- and it didn't take.
