Post Ozzy & Halford to tour North America
OZZY OSBOURNE will return to North America for a month-long arena tour launching November 12 in Victoria, B.C. and concluding December 12 in Minneapolis. These shows — in support of his album "Scream" (Epic Records) and latest single, "Life Won't Wait" — are part the of the rock legend's in-progress 18-month world tour on which he's earning some of the best live reviews of his career (including raves for new guitarist, Gus G.). HALFORD, featuring legendary JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford, will perform on all dates. The first leg of arena dates will mark Ozzy's first headlining North American tour since 2007's trek for his "Black Rain" album. Tickets for the Live Nation-produced tour go on sale beginning Friday, September 17.

Ozzy is now on a run of acclaimed festival appearances and headlining overseas performances, including two Ozzfest dates: London at O2 Arena September 18 and Tel Aviv, Israel at Heyarkon Park September 28. This overseas trek includes stops in Russia, Italy, Czech Republic, France, Denmark, Sweden, Greece, Finland, Norway, Germany, Romania and Turkey, before wrapping October 4 in Hungary. Ozzy then heads to Japan (October 13, 16 and 17) before returning to the U.S. to headline the Voodoo Experience festival Halloween weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana.

A limited number of VIP tickets are available for each show on the North American tour through two unique meet-and-greet packages. VIP packages go on sale Monday, September 13 at 10:00 a.m. (local venue time) and are limited to four per show date for the met-and-greet package and eight per show date for the party package. Descriptions of the two VIP packages are as follows:

* The "Ozzy Osbourne Meet-And-Greet Package" is limited to 30 tickets per show and amenities include: premium seating within the first three rows of the stage, meet-and-greet and personal photograph with Ozzy, VIP access to the exclusive pre-concert party hosted by MC Big Dave and a variety of Ozzy tour- related items.

* The "Ozzy Osbourne Possessed Party Package" — available to the first 200 buyers —-includes a ticket located within the first 10 rows of the stage, VIP access to the exclusive pre-concert party hosted by MC Big Dave and a variety of Ozzy tour-related items.

The fall dates will coincide with the October 5 release of an expanded two-CD version of the "Scream" album. This "Tour Edition" package will feature seven bonus songs: a mix of previously unreleased tracks and live recordings. Epic will also issue a four-sided vinyl edition that includes five bonus tracks: the three aforementioned songs from the "Scream" sessions and the live version of "Let Me Hear You Scream", along with the single version of "Life Won't Wait".

The preliminary tour dates are as follows (with more dates to be announced):

I'll answer this one:

I emailed Scott, and he said he's not playing with Halford... at least for the gig in Brazil... so I wouldn't count on that for the US either. :(

Bobby Jarzonbeck is the drummer for Halford as far as I am concerned...
