Metallica perform tribute to Ozzy Osbourne at MusiCares MAP Fund benefit

Metallica performed a tribute to Ozzy Osbourne as the rocker was honoured at the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on Monday.

The band played a 4-song acoustic set at the 10th anniversary event, which saw Osbourne presented with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award in recognition for his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund, and for his commitment to helping other addicts with the addiction recovery process.

The rocker joins the list of previous honorees including Anthony Kiedis, James Hetfield, Chris Cornell, Alice Cooper and Jerry Cantrell.

Metallica’s set included covers of songs by Rare Earth, Deep Purple and The Beatles, along with an Ozzy solo track.

Ozzy and his touring band also performed at the event, joined by special guest Slash.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the MusiCares MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.

Osbourne and Black Sabbath recently wrapped up their North American spring tour dates in support of their latest album, “13”, at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and will return to the road for shows starting May 29 in Abu Dhabi.
