|Ozzy Osbourne concert chronology|
The Scream World Tour was a concert tour by English born heavy metal musician Ozzy Osbourne in support of tenth studio album, Scream , which was released in June 2010.
Heavy metal is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom. With roots in blues rock, psychedelic rock, and acid rock, the bands that created heavy metal developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion, extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and overall loudness. The genre's lyrics and performance styles are sometimes associated with aggression and machismo.
John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne is an English singer, songwriter, actor and reality television star who rose to prominence during the 1970s as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, during which he adopted the nickname "The Prince of Darkness". Osbourne was fired from the band in 1979 due to alcohol and drug problems, but went on to have a successful solo career, releasing eleven studio albums, the first seven of which were all awarded multi-platinum certifications in the United States. Osbourne has since reunited with Black Sabbath on several occasions. He rejoined the band in 1997 and helped record the group’s final studio album 13 (2013) before they embarked on a farewell tour which culminated in a final performance in their home city, Birmingham, England, in February 2017. His longevity and success have earned him the informal title of "Godfather of Heavy Metal".
Scream is the eleventh studio album by English heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne, released in the United Kingdom on 14 June 2010 and his most recent solo album as of 2019. The album was recorded at Osbourne's home studio "The Bunker" in Los Angeles, California and produced by himself and Kevin Churko, who had previously worked on Black Rain in 2007. The album was considered a commercial failure though it sold to moderate success in the digital age of musical downloads reaching number 4 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and number 12 on the UK Albums Chart.
The tour officially kicked off in June 2010 with a tour of Europe, following two promotional dates in Hollywood in the United States earlier in the month. These shows were the first in which new guitarist Gus G. and drummer Tommy Clufetos were officially a part of the live band. The European leg began in Birmingham, England and wrapped up on the 9th of July in Turku, Finland. The main purpose of the leg was to promote Osbourne's newly released album, Scream. In August 2010, Osbourne and his touring band performed six dates for the annual Ozzfest as well as a pre-festival appearance at the Buffalo Chip festival in Sturgis, South Dakota. The event also hosted Mötley Crüe as a co-headliner marking the first time they have toured with Osbourne since 1984. The first date of the United States Ozzfest began in San Bernardino, California and eventually culminated in Boston, Massachusetts.
Tommy Clufetos is an American session drummer most noted for his work with Black Sabbath during their Black Sabbath Reunion Tour, which highlighted their new album 13. He also toured with them on their final tour. He is also the drummer for Black Sabbath vocalist Ozzy Osbourne.
Ozzfest is an annual festival tour of the United States and sometimes Europe featuring performances by many heavy metal and hard rock musical groups. It was founded by Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon Osbourne, both of whom also organise each yearly tour with their son Jack Osbourne. The Ozzfest tour has featured bands of a variety of genres within heavy metal and hard rock, including alternative metal, thrash metal, industrial metal, metalcore, hardcore punk, deathcore, nu metal, death metal, post-hardcore, gothic metal and black metal. Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath have played the tour several times over the years.
Mötley Crüe is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee, lead guitarist Mick Mars and lead singer Vince Neil. Mötley Crüe has sold 100 million albums worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time. They have also achieved seven platinum or multi-platinum certifications, nine Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart, twenty-two Top 40 mainstream rock hits, and six Top 20 pop singles. The band had experienced several short term lineup changes in the 1990s and 2000s that included vocalist John Corabi and drummers Randy Castillo and Samantha Maloney, both of whom filled in for Lee during his split from the band from 1999 to 2004.
After the culmination of the Ozzfest in the United States, Osbourne embarked on a second European leg beginning on August 28. The tour consisted of arena shows and festivals including the England and Israel iterations of the Ozzfest. Osbourne's appearance in Tel Aviv marks the first time he has performed in Israel. Osbourne was forced to cancel his show in Oberhausen, Germany, after he had pulled a back muscle. The leg ended in early October and Osbourne proceeded to Japan within two weeks to perform at the Loudpark Festival.
Israel, also known as the State of Israel, is a country in Western Asia, located on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea. It has land borders with Lebanon to the north, Syria to the northeast, Jordan on the east, the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip to the east and west, respectively, and Egypt to the southwest. The country contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Israel's economic and technological center is Tel Aviv, while its seat of government and proclaimed capital is Jerusalem, although the state's sovereignty over Jerusalem has only partial recognition.
Tel Aviv, officially Tel Aviv-Yafo (Hebrew: תֵּל־אָבִיב–יָפוֹ[tel aˈviv ˈjafo], is the second most populous city in Israel—after Jerusalem—and the most populous city in the conurbation of Gush Dan, Israel's largest metropolitan area. Located on the country's Mediterranean coastline and with a population of 451,523, it is the economic and technological center of the country.
Osbourne embarked on an arena leg of North America beginning October 30 with an appearance at the Voodoo Experience festival. Osbourne was supported by Halford, a heavy metal band fronted by Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford. This leg of the tour ended on December 12. Osbourne embarked on a second leg of North America from January 16 – February 22 in 2011. He was supported by former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash's solo band.
The Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, commonly referred to as Voodoo or Voodoo Fest, is a multi-day music and arts festival held in City Park in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Halford is an American heavy metal band formed in 1999 by British singer Rob Halford, who is best known as the lead vocalist for Judas Priest. Halford formed the band to return to his heavy metal roots. His two previous projects were a "street metal"-style band called Fight and the industrial metal band 2wo.
Judas Priest are an English heavy metal band formed in West Bromwich in 1969. They have sold over 50 million copies of their albums. They are frequently ranked as one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Despite an innovative and pioneering body of work in the latter half of the 1970s, the band had struggled with indifferent record production and a lack of major commercial success or attention until 1980, when they adopted a more simplified sound on the album British Steel.
This was the first time since 1984 that Ozzy had played in Puerto Rico. Ironically he said in an interview some days after the concert, that he will be back soon. He returned to Puerto Rico 27 years later. He had also been in Puerto Rico previously with Black Sabbath in 1972 but didn't get to play on that show.
The lead vocalist in popular music is typically the member of a group or band whose voice is the most prominent in a performance where multiple voices may be heard. The lead singer either leads the vocal ensemble, or sets against the ensemble as the dominant sound. In vocal group performances, notably in soul and gospel music, and early rock and roll, the lead singer takes the main vocal part, with a chorus provided by other band members as backing vocalists.
Konstantinos Karamitroudis, also known as Gus G, is a heavy metal guitarist. He currently plays with his band Firewind. He has also played in Mystic Prophecy, Nightrage, Arch Enemy, Dream Evil and for Ozzy Osbourne.
The guitar is a fretted musical instrument that usually has six strings. It is typically played with both hands by strumming or plucking the strings with either a guitar pick or the finger(s)/fingernails of one hand, while simultaneously fretting with the fingers of the other hand. The sound of the vibrating strings is projected either acoustically, by means of the hollow chamber of the guitar, or through an electrical amplifier and a speaker.
