Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter Ozzy Osbourne will perform at halftime of the Los Angeles Rams season opener on Thursday, September 8th at SoFi Stadium. The performance comes on the eve of the release of Osbourne’s new 'Patient Number 9' album out September 9 on Epic Records.
To kick off the 2022 season, the Los Angeles Rams will host the Buffalo Bills in the Rams’ first game at SoFi Stadium since winning Super Bowl LVI in February. The game will be presented nationally on NBC, Peacock and Universo at 5:20 PM PT/8:20 PM ET. Tickets are available at www.therams.com/tickets.
Fans in the stadium will be treated to a multi-song medley from Osbourne while viewers at home will see a portion of the performance on NBC and Peacock during halftime.
The new album marks the first release since Osbourne’s critically acclaimed, worldwide, chart-topping 2020 album 'Ordinary Man'. Produced by Andrew Watt (who handled the same duties on 'Ordinary Man'), the new album marks Osbourne’s 13th solo studio album. It’s heavy, it’s hard-hitting, it’s historic--it’s everything you’d want from an Ozzy Osbourne record and maybe more. Working with producer Watt for the second time, Ozzy welcomed dynamic A-list featured guests.
For the first time ever, Black Sabbath co-founder, guitarist, and riff-master Tony Iommi appears on an Ozzy solo album. The record also boasts guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, and longstanding righthand man and six-string beast Zakk Wylde who plays on the majority of the tracks. For the bulk of the album, Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers held down drums, while the late Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters appears on three songs. Old friend and one-time OZZY band member Robert Trujillo of Metallica plays bass on most of the album’s tracks, with Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction supplying bass on a few songs.
Brooklyn, NY is the launching pad for the heaviest tour to hit North America --- here it comes! The Omens tour starts one month before their highly anticipated "Omens" album drops, October 7th on Epic Records.
Check out the Randy Blythe, band vocalist, documentary video clip titled “Rewilding” which shows Randy’s initiative for reforesting in the South American country of Ecuador, solely funded through his cameo sales.

It’s really great to see how Randy put his cameo sales into action, raising awareness and making a difference. This opportunity for global engagement could really make a change for the better for our planet.

The 31. Wacken Open Air is in the books. At the world’s biggest metal festival, 83.400 fans witnessed spectacular shows by Judas Priest, Slipknot and Powerwolf. In total, more than 200 bands rocked nine stages, Sweden’s Amon Amarth even played an unannounced secret concert right underneath the famous Wacken skull.
The joy of finally being able to experience live music and a multi-faceted open air event with like-minded people from all over the world could be felt everywhere. Festival promoters Holger Hübner and Thomas Jensen commented: "The Wacken Open Air is back – finally! We missed the festival as much as the fans did. Now we’re very much looking forward to next year’s edition, which will offer four full days of live concerts for the first time. Tickets go on sale this Sunday evening.“
At a press conference held during the afternoon, police, fire department and emergency medical services as well as the local regulatory authority looked back on an exceptionally peaceful and trouble-free event. The number of occurrences in their respective fields all stayed below of those from 2019. For example, the number of times the fire brigade had to jump into action only was in the lower double digits, the number of cases for the police dropped by 60 percent.
Bands confirmed for 2023, four days of live music for the first time. A first glimpse of next year’s billing was announced on the main stages during the night. W:O:A 2023 will take place Aug 2-5, making it the first time the festival officially boasts four days of live music.
Headlining the event will be the mighty Iron Maiden: There is not a single metalhead that doesn’t know them. And it’s hard to think of a band that has defined classic heavy metal as much as they have. So consequently, there might very well be no band that is a better fit for the "holy ground of metal“. So in 2023, Iron Maiden will return to headline at the Wacken Open Air for the fourth time! So get ready for impressive production, a passionate performance, amazing music and of course Eddie! It has been seven long years since those iconic words have been heard: "Scream for me, Wacken!“
Also announced have been Megadeth from the USA, who are considered worldwide as originators of Thrash Metal and being part of the "Big 4“ of the genre. Also playing will be Irish-American folk-punks Dropkick Murphys and Jinjer from the Ukraine, one of the hottest bands in modern metal today. Two Steps From Hell, a duo from Los Angeles, have amassed millions of followers with their brand of „Epic Music“, used in thousands of movies, trailers, series, spots and games, turning them into the biggest in their field. At the W:O:A, their first festival ever and only festival in Europe in 2023, they will perform a special and unique Wacken set. Fans can look forward to doom pioneers Pentagram and their „50th Anniversary Show“, while death metallers Deicide will celebrate their genre shaping sophomore album "Legion“ with a special show as well. More announcements are: Wardruna (atmospheric Nordic folk), Beartooth (hardcore), Ensiferum (Viking metal), Nervosa (thrash), and Burning Witches (heavy metal). More bands to be follow.
In 2023, there will be once again a theme running through the whole festival: vikings and their culture. This will manifest itself in the overall appearance of the W:O:A as well performances and additional content all over the festival site.

Evanescence will be returning to the UK and Europe during November and December on their rescheduled co-headline ‘Worlds Collide’ tour with Within Temptation. Before that, they will be playing some of their own headline shows in June and have just confirmed extra dates in Madrid and Lisbon plus Rock In The City festival in Helsinki.
The band has also just announced a Stateside tour with Korn produced by Live Nation. Accompanied by special guests varying across select dates, the 18-city tour kicks off on August 16th at Ball Arena in Denver, CO making stops across the U.S. in Boston, Chicago, Houston, and more before wrapping up in Ridgefield, WA on September 16th.
“We’re looking forward to going on tour this summer and bringing our friends, Evanescence, out,” said Jonathan Davis of Korn. “Whenever Amy comes to one of our shows, I always love seeing her on the side of the stage watching the whole set and rocking out. We’re gonna have a great time on this tour, and we can’t wait to see you there.”
“I fell hard into Korn’s music in high school. It was an inspiration during the formation of my own band. The chances we’ve had to play together over the years are special, a part of our history. They remain one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen,” said Amy Lee of Evanescence. “It’s an honour and a thrill to go out with our friends again, our first full tour together since ‘07. We’re all really looking forward to this.”

American experimental deathcore outfit The Browning announce Stateside Summer 2022 headline tour dates
The Browning have announced their Summer 2022 headline tour. "The End of Existence Tour Part One" kicks off July 7 in Houston and runs through July 17 in Des Moines. All dates are below. Special guest Young Medicine will appear. Get tickets here.
The band's latest album End of Existence is out now.
LISTEN TO THE BROWNING:
THE BROWNING ON TOUR WITH YOUNG MEDICINE:
End of Existence was written, performed, recorded, engineered and mixed by The Browning's impresario Jonny McBee. It's 12 tracks of detuned guitars, electronic nuances, and vocal gut punches. McBee has labelled the music "doomy, dystopian, and apocalyptic." He pulls back the curtain a bit about his inspiration sources, saying, "Early on, I knew I was going to write the heaviest Browning body of work there was. I needed a theme to fit the heaviness and darkness of the music though. Since I was really happy in my personal life, it had to have a fictional plot. For me, this was about creating a universe."
The global COVID-19 pandemic tabled the band's touring plans so McBee focused on his next creative and personal chapters. He built a tiny house for his wife and new-born daughter and cooked up End of Existence at home. Over the course of the ensuing year, he took advantage of the extra time to perfect it, playing every instrument, and producing. He effectively bottled the band's signature live intensity in the studio and on End of Existence.
Voyager will once again land their Australian feet on European soil during the 'Witness Tour Europe 2022', supporting the mighty VOLA. The tour will be kicking off in Munich (DE) at Feierwerk on the 9th of September 2022 and will be traveling through 12 different countries, delivering 21 energetic shows before the final show, which will end at Euroblast Fest in Cologne - (DE). Together with VOLA and Four Stroke Baron they will spread all of their best throughout Europe. Welcome back Voyager!
“Europe, it has been a while indeed and what better way to mark our return to your shores (and to escape from ours) than with some other synth-tastic bands. We join VOLA and Four Stroke Baron across UK/Europe and we cannot wait to see your beautiful faces.”

Nine Inch Nails have announced the support acts for their dates at Cornwall’s Eden Project in June. Nitzer Ebb will support on June 17th and Yves Tumor joins the bill for the sold-out show on June 18th. In what promises to be undoubtedly one of the live highlights of the year, the shows will be NIN’s first UK headline dates in four years.
NIN will bring their ferocious show to the extraordinary venue for these unmissable shows, set within the stunning grounds of the Eden Project, which has seen past performances from the likes of Pulp, PJ Harvey, Muse, Oasis and Queens Of The Stone Age.
Nine Inch Nails was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, headquartered in Cleveland, in 2020.
NIN bring their show, hailed by The Guardian as ‘saw toothed,‘ with the ‘ferocity of a Rottweiler gnashing through its muzzle, bathed in exquisite monochromatic lighting and smoke’ to the lush grounds described by The Times as ‘Magical…half Glastonbury, half Glydnenbourne’ and of which the Evening Standard wrote ‘The nearest you can get to watching a gig on the moon.’
Within Temptation and Evanescence are happy to announce that the anticipated co-headline ‘Worlds Collide’ European tour will still happen this year. The European arena tour that was originally due to kick off in March 2022, will now move to November and December 2022. All existing tickets & VIP packages will remain valid for the rescheduled dates and all venues remain the same.
Both bands stated earlier:-
“As the world is slowly reopening again, we have been feeling optimistic about the tour actually taking place in March and April. However - a lot of countries still have restrictions in place, and we are forced to make a decision right now for logistical reasons. We are aware that many fans are preparing to make their plans to attend the shows, some of which involve travel, and given the uncertainty as to exactly when certain countries will lift their restrictions, we are left with no choice but to reschedule the tour, hopefully for the final time.”
All existing tickets & VIP packages will remain valid for the rescheduled dates and all venues remain the same. For more information, please visit www.worldscollidetour.net
