Look, there are a lot of incredible singers in the history of rock music – Sammy Hagar, Robert Plant, Ronnie James Dio, Steve Perry, Bruce Dickinson, Maynard James Keenan, Freddie Mercury, and countless others. However, there is only one Prince Of Darkness. That’s right. Ozzy is one of a kind.

He’s a goofy character for sure, but he’s also written and performed some of the most famous and powerful rock anthems of all time. I don’t think that I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t love Ozzy, and quite frankly I don’t want to. I don’t think we could be friends.

He’s been a touring singer for a very long while, and announced last year that he would be retiring after his "No More Tours 2" tour. He would've been joining veteran rockers KISS, Bob Seger, and Elton John in his retirement. However, it seems that it was a huge false alarm. Ozzy stated that he would continue performing after his "farewell tour" but less extensively. Surprise!

Ozzy was originally booked to play the Xcel Energy Center earlier this month but due to a sustained injury was forced to reschedule. You can catch Ozzy performing at the Xcel on July 3rd, 2020.
