Rocker will perform at Halftime
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Ozzy Osbourne will perform at halftime of the Los Angeles Rams season opener on Thursday, September 8th at SoFi Stadium. The performance comes on the eve of the release of Osbourne’s new Patient Number 9 album out September 9th on Epic.
To kick off the 2022 season, the Los Angeles Rams will host the Buffalo Bills in the Rams’ first game at SoFi Stadium since winning Super Bowl LVI in February. The game will be presented nationally on NBC, Peacock and Universo at 5:20 pm PT/8:20 pm ET.
Fans in the stadium will be treated to a multi-song medley from Osbourne while viewers at home will see a portion of the performance on NBC and Peacock during halftime.
Like 2020’s Ordinary Man, 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.
Osbourne has confirmed a special in-store appearance and signing at Fingerprints in Long Beach, CA on Saturday, September 10th. Attendees will need to pre-order the album through Fingerprints to attend the event. In order to sign as many copies as possible, the Patient Number 9 will be the only item signed. Masks will be required for all attendees and no photos with The Prince of Darkness will be permitted.
Last month, a 25-foot inflatable of Osbourne began trekking across the country in support of the album. 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 with some stops being announced 24 hours in advance.
