Ozzy Osbourne to headline New Year’s Eve Ozzfest in Los Angeles

Ozzy Osbourne will headline a New Year’s Eve edition of Ozzfest at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA on Monday, December 31.

Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis of Korn and Body Count featuring Ice-T will join the legendary rocker for the first-ever, special one-night edition of his annual festival that will also include an outdoor stage headlined by guitarist Zakk Wylde’s Black Sabbath tribute, Zakk Sabbath.

The evening will conclude with Osbourne onstage counting down to the new year.

“I asked Sharon what we’re doing this New Year’s Eve and she said ‘We’re doing F-all!”, says Ozzy. “So I thought ‘we didn’t do Ozzfest in 2018, so let’s do a New Year’s Eve Ozzfest.’”

Tickets for Ozzfest 2018 will go on sale Friday, October 26 at 10:00 AM (PT) via livenation, with VIP packages available via

Osbourne continues to recover following a series of recent surgeries for multiple infections in his right hand.

The situation saw the rocker postpone, cancel and ultimately reschedule what were to be the final four US shows of the year; stops in Mountain View, CA, Chula Vista, CA, Los Angeles, CA and Las Vegas, NV were moved to July 2019 as part of Ozzy’s three-year farewell tour.
