Ozzy Osbourne‘s wife and manager Sharon is working on a one-off concert production for her husband, to take place in Las Vegas by Halloween 2015. She told the British newspaper The Sun: “I’m working right now on a Vegas production for Ozzy. It’ll be in time for Halloween and be called ‘Hell Gate‘.”
A source told The Sun : “Ozzy has never done a stand-alone show in Vegas and there has been huge interest in what he has to offer. Vegas is an amazing spot, which has been a huge hit with the rock crowd. Ozzy would be a top draw and really do something unique.”
Ozzy in September launched a Facebook page for an upcoming project called “Ozzy Osbourne’s Hell Gate.” At the time, the BLACK SABBATH singer had not yet revealed any more details about what the project might be, except that it was “coming in October 2015.”
Ozzy released a solo career retrospective titled “Memoirs Of A Madman” on October 7. The CD contained 17 of his greatest hits, while the DVD will feature music videos, rare live performances and interviews.
Ozzy told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he doesn’t plan to stop making music any time soon, but thinks he’ll know when that time comes. “I’ve always said that if the audience diminishes down to one cow and three drunks in a field, I think that I’d be pretty dumb to not go, ‘You know what, maybe I should just call it quits, you know,'” he said.
Ozzy has recently expressed interest in making a new solo album. His last solo studio effort was 2010’s “Scream”.
His first all-new album with SABBATH in 35 years, “13”, came out in June 2013 and topped both the U.S. and U.K. album charts, later winning a Grammy Award as well.
