Rock ‘n roll legend Ozzy Osbourne gave fans their definite money’s worth this Halloween at Voodoo Fest in New Orleans, as Osbourne shared the stage with his special guests for the evening: Slash of Guns N’ Roses, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath.
Osbourne started out the show with favorites like “I Don’t Know”, “Mr. Crowley,” and “Bark at the Moon”. During the performance, he sprayed the crowd with a fire hose, dumped a bucket of water on his head, and asked the crowd throughout if they were having a good time. When the crowd responded, Osbourne playfully answered, “I can’t f*cking hear you.” This was the first solo show for Osbourne in several years.
During “Iron Man”, Morello, Slash and Butler joined Ozzy on stage, to the delight of the crowd. Despite the continuous rain, Ozzy encouraged the crowd to have their fair-share of fun. He said: “I’m singing in the rain” — because who doesn’t want a little Gene Kelly with their metal?” as he quickly dove into “Fairies Wear Boots”.
As he performed “Crazy Train”, Ozzy doused the crowd with a fire hose and fell to his knees and bowed, telling the audience: “Thank you so much for sticking it out in this f*cking dreadful weather. I love you all.”
