Ozzy Osbourne showered fans with one-thousand-dollar “Ozzy bucks” during an appearance yesterday (Thursday, September 28) at the Ozzfest pop-up store at the Palladium in Hollywood, California.
Fans came by the store on their way to see “Black Sabbath: The End Of The End” at ArcLight cinemas in Hollywood and got a chance to pick up something from the remaining “The End” tour merch or classic Ozzfest and Ozzy Osbourne merchandise.
There were specially priced $20 Ozzfest 2017 tickets available from the Palladium box office window. In addition, there were a few food trucks to chow from, plus the 95.5 KLOS truck with Full Metal Jackie DJing tunes for everyone.
A video report from Los Angeles television station KTLA can be seen below.
Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, a combination of the two hard rock and metal events that first took place in September 2016 in San Bernardino, California, will return to Glen Helen Amphitheater And Festival Grounds in early November. The multi-stage, two-day weekend camping event will include more than forty acts, with Ozzfest taking place on Saturday, November 4.
“The End Of The End” chronicles the final tour from the band that spawned the metal genre — BLACK SABBATH. On February 4, 2017, SABBATH stormed the stage in their hometown of Birmingham, to play the eighty-first and final triumphant gig of “The End” tour. This monumental show brought down the curtain on a career that spanned almost half a century.
The sold-out performance marked the culmination of a global tour that saw the band play to over one and a half million fans. With their inception in 1968, BLACK SABBATH pioneered a sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, and to this day continues to influence bands the world over.
