Ozzy Osbourne To Record Live Album, DVD At Budokan

Ozzy Osbourne, on his first tour of Japan in four years, will tape his performance Friday at Tokyo’s legendary Budokan Hall for a live album and DVD. Live at Budokan, a title most music fans associate with Cheap Trick’s bombastic 1979 live effort, is scheduled for a summer release.

Although it’s not yet known which performance songs will appear in the video, the live album will contain some B-sides from import singles, according to Osbourne’s publicist. The bonus tracks were recorded during the sessions for last year’s Down to Earth, his latest solo album.

Following the Budokan show, Ozzy will visit South Korea on February 21for his first-ever concert there. Then it’s off to Alaska and Canada for a string of dates that conclude March 14 in Quebec City, Quebec.

Ozzy will once again headline his Ozzfest festival this summer, along with System of a Down. The metal extravaganza’s European incarnation is slated to tour the continent in the spring, and the domestic version is set to commence in July.
