Long time anticipated living metal legend “Godfather of Heavy Metal” Ozzy Osbourne is in Istanbul this week, as part of this year’s international Ozzfest tour. World’s most radical heavy metal and rock group, Ozzy Osbourne will perform in Istanbul on September 30 at BKM Kurucesme Arena.
Ozzy Osbourne said that alcohol, not politics, has stopped him from playing in Istanbul until now. He said politics had nothing to do with it. “I try to stay away from politics. They don’t understand me and I don’t understand them,” he said, sitting next to his wife Sharon.
Ozzy Osbourne rose to prominence as lead vocalist of pioneering British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, and eventually achieved a multi-platinum solo career between the early 1980s and mid 1990s. In the early 2000s, his career expanded to a new medium when he became a star in his own reality show, The Osbournes, alongside wife/manager Sharon and two of their three children, Kelly and Jack.
Songs like “Paranoid,” and “War Pigs,” with their dark lyrics and heavy guitar riffs changed rock and roll and inspired many bands. Osbourne left the band in the late 1970s and has been performing solo since.
Ozzy Osbourne upcoming release “Scream” on June 22nd via Epic Records. This will be his first album in three years and 10th studio album overall.
Osbourne is ranked 8th on Hit Parader’s list of the 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Vocalists of all time.
