Ozzy Osbourne kicks off Canadian tour

"Let the madness begin!"
- Ozzy Osbourne

Ozzy Osbourne kicked off his Canadian tour last night in Victoria, BC, rocking the largest crowd ever (7,260) for a show at the Save On Foods Memorial Centre.

"Let the madness begin!" Ozzy screamed to start the evening, according the concert review in the Victoria Times Colonist.

Ozzy’s back in Canada with his new band - guitarist Gus G., bassist Rob 'Blasko' Nicholson, keyboardist Adam Wakeman (son of Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman) and drummer Tommy Clufetos.

The reports suggest Ozzy’s voice cracked throughout the show, but that his energy and enthusiasm level was off the charts, especially considering he’s 61 years old.

Ahead of the tour, Ozzy told the QMI Agency, “We have so much fun that the concerts are getting longer. The longest show I ever did was in Canada. I think it was in Montreal on the last tour. It was three hours. And with this band, I'm up to two hours and 15 minutes. And the way it looks, I'll be breaking my record again in Canada."
