Ozzy will be honoured as a legend at this year’s Kerrang! rock awards in London on 9th June. The singer is also playing a show in the capital in the same month to mark the rock magazine’s 30th anniversary.
He said: “It’s an incredible honour to be the second recipient of Kerrang’s legend award. I’m looking forward to you going crazy at the 30th Anniversary on 21 June in Hammersmith.”
Kerrang! editor Nichola Browne said: “We are so unbelievably excited to have Ozzy play this very special show for our 30th birthday celebrations in June. Ozzy has been the mainstay of rock music.“
“We are privileged that the Prince of Darkness can help us mark this momentous milestone in style and it’s guaranteed to be a night to remember.”
“During his long and colourful career, he’s not only helped define heavy metal as the voice of Black Sabbath, he’s also enjoyed a three-decade reign as a solo artist and inspired thousands of rock fans to go crazy during his unmissable live shows.
“He’s a much-loved, larger-than-life personality, and it is only fitting that we will be honouring Ozzy with the prestigious Legend Award at this year’s Kerrang! awards.“
