vBlack Label Society brings their “20 Years Of Sonic Brewtality” Tour to NYC for two nights at the Bowery Ballroom. They’ll be joined by Conan and The Atomic Bitchwax as support and Zakk sure does want to see all of the Chapter Berzerkers present at each of these gigs. Don’t let him down.
Back in the beginning of April, we shared the news about Ozzy Osbourne being injured and cancelling all of his 2019 appearances (seen HERE). Well, fortunately the legendary singer has been on a proper mend and is beginning to map out the plans for 2020. Here is the first press release from his team that lines out the return to the UK and European dates.
The Press Release:
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE has just announced rescheduled shows in the UK and Europe on his “NO MORE TOURS 2” tour.
The six-week trek kicks off in OZZY’s native UK on January 31 before wrapping March 16 in Zurich, Switzerland. The tour includes stops throughout the UK–Nottingham, Dublin, Manchester, Newcastle, London (O2 Arena), Glasgow and OZZY’s Birmingham hometown–before heading to Europe for gigs in Germany, Finland, Sweden, Austria, Czech Republic, Italy and Switzerland. This news follows an April announcement about OZZY’s North American dates, which will kick off in February 2020 (linked above already).
Tuesday is not usually known for being a day that makes folks happy (since its still so far away from the weekend and all) but with the updates from the Zakk Wylde media side of the fence today just might be the exception. Read on down to learn some awesome news and some special anniversary touring. I’ll return at the close of course.
The Press Release:
Entertainment One (eOne) has licensed the complete back catalog of Black Label Society (BLS), the hard rock group led by American guitar icon Zakk Wylde. In addition to the band’s last three albums which were released on eOne, the Company has licensed the following titles: Sonic Brew, Stronger Than Death, 1919 Eternal, The Blessed Hellride, Hangover Music Vol. VI, Mafia, and Shot to Hell. Fans can expect these titles in never-before-released formats over the next few years.
eOne’s Scott Givens, SVP, Rock, Music, says, “I’m delighted to expand our partnership with Zakk and Black Label Society to now include all his amazing earlier work.”

Well how about that my friends, it appears as though we’ve once again arrived at the time where the Instagram “Top Nine” images are tabulated and that means you get to enjoy them as well. Over the course of 2018, I really was enjoying the use of Instagram as a social networking tool and I’m fairly certain that I used it a lot more than any of the other socials combined. The rundown will come after the image below so please take a gander. I figured that I’d offer up some background on them all.
About These Visuals: Starting from the top left hand corner we’ve got the band Paramore which is fronted by Hayley Williams and right next to that is the ominious Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein and his own parmour Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy. A lot of you longer terms website readers will likely remember Alissa from The Agonist. Closing up the first row is Black Veil Brides singer Andy Black who was showing off a brand new comic graphic novel at the Last Rites Gallery. I’m not sure why they decided to cut off artist Eryk Donovan but that is the app for you. Sorry Eryk. The second row was from a great SiriusXM Town Hall with the legendary Judas Priest and that is the lads and myself post their interview at the station. It’s always great to say hello to The Priest and of course to support their live shows. The Brits are followed next by two images of the lovely and talented Riki “Riddle” Lecotey who is a cosplayer of some reknown. They were taken from The BoroughCon event and we just love her amazing designs. Our last row is the also legendary Glenn Hughes who was delivering a solo tour that celebrated his Deep Purple years. This row is completed by a visual from the Ghost Press Conference that was held by Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator and the great Zakk Wylde from Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne during his special appearance at the “Fear The Riff” Expo in Brooklyn. Good times. As you can see, the collage shows that we recieved 25.8K likes for the sum total of our 6,716 posted images. Though we’ve gone up over 1K followers to 1,419 the sum-total likes dropped a chunk in comparison to last year. I think this was based on our flipping between personal and business accounts to get some standings but in the business account we saw less people coming aboard much like the Facebook Official Page. Since Facebook owns Instagram a lot of the same algorithm stuff goes on and they want you to pay for ads which I am NOT going to do.
