Anyone who counted Ozzy Osbourne out, should think again. The last few years have been marred by health issues and show cancellations, but the Prince of Darkness is back. On August 8th, the 73-year-old heavy-metal icon surprised fans at the Commonwealth Games in his hometown of Birmingham, England, with a performance of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid" with Tony Iommi. Now comes the news that on Thursday, September 9th — the day before the release of his highly anticipated new solo album, Patient Number 9 — the Ozzman will play halftime of the Los Angeles Rams season opener at SoFi Stadium.
The game — against the Buffalo Bills — will be the Rams' first at SoFi Stadium since winning Super Bowl LVI in February. It will be presented nationally on NBC, Peacock and Universo at 5:20 p.m. PT/8:20 p.m. ET. Tickets are available at therams.com/tickets.
Fans in the stadium will be treated to a multi-song medley from Ozzy while viewers at home will see a portion of the performance on NBC and Peacock during halftime.
