The post Ozzy Osbourne to Perform at Halftime of Season-Opening NFL Rams-Bills Game appeared first on Consequence.
Ozzy Osbourne is slowly making his way back to the stage after a series of health setbacks forced him off the road for the past few years. The metal icon will perform Thursday, September eighth, during halftime of the NFL’s season-opening game between the Buffalo Bills and the defending Super Bowl champs the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
The Prince of Darkness will probably be promoting his latest album, Patient Number 9, which arrives the following day (September ninth). In keeping with a press release, he’ll perform a multi-song medley, a portion of which will probably be televised during NBC’s broadcast of the sport.
Ozzy recently surprised fans in his hometown of Birmingham, England, when he performed “Paranoid” alongside Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi on the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games last month. It marked his first live gig in nearly three years.
It’s a bit ironic that Ozzy will probably be acting at the Los Angeles Rams game, considering he’s moving from L.A. back to England. The singer has cited the high taxes in L.A., in addition to the repeated mass shootings and general divisiveness in america, as reasons for the move.
As for the brand new album, Patient Number 9 features contributions from Iommi, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mike McCready, Zakk Wylde, Robert Trujillo, Duff McKagan, Chris Chaney, Chad Smith the late Taylor Hawkins. In one other album promotion, a 25-foot inflatable Ozzy is making its way across America leading as much as the LP’s release.

Meanwhile, it was also just announced that Ozzy and his family will probably be returning to reality TV, starring within the docu-series Home to Roost for BBC One in 2023.
The NFL’s season-opening game between the Rams and the Bills airs September eighth on NBC at 5:20 p.m. PT / 8:20 p.m. ET.
