25-foot Ozzy Osbourne inflatable embarks on US tour

Tour promotes forthcoming album

A 25-foot Ozzy Osbourne inflatable is trekking across the United States in support of The Prince of Darkness’ forthcoming Patient Number 9 album, due September 9th via Epic Records. The inflatable was designed by Todd McFarlane and made its debut at San Diego Comic-Con last month where the real Ozzy made an appearance.

The month-long tour will close out in New York City the week of the album’s release. Some locations will be revealed 24 hours in advance, while others will be surprise appearances. At all stops, fans can win merchandise and pose for photos with “Ozzy” and the Patient Number 9 ambulance, they’ll also have the opportunity to win the 25-foot giant inflatable.

The tour kicked off with three initial stops in Los Angeles. It began with an appearance at the historic Venice Boardwalk on Saturday (Aug 6th), followed with a stop at Smorgasburg LA–the weekly Sunday market at The Row in downtown Los Angeles–before bidding farewell to the city on Monday (Aug 8th) atop East Hollywood boutique hotel, bar, and recording studio complex Gold Diggers. The inflatable then made a surprise appearance on the Las Vegas strip on Tuesday (Aug 9th) before heading to the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota this weekend.

Patient Number 9 is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Osbourne’s new album and the first since his critically acclaimed, worldwide, chart-topping 2020 Ordinary Man release. Like its predecessor, the album will include an all-star lineup of featured guest artists, including Jeff Beck, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Zakk Wylde, Tony Iommi, Eric Clapton, Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, Guns N Roses’ Duff McKagan, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, the late Taylor Hawkins and Jane’s Addiction’s Chris Chaney. Andrew Watt returns as producer.
