TAMPA BAYOzzy Osbourne, who will kick off his fall North American arena tour November 12 in Victoria, B.C, has announced a second leg of U.S. dates which will begin January 16, 2011 in Omaha, NE. The six-week 2011 trek is part of the multi-platinum Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s in-progress 18-month world tour. Ozzy’s longtime friend and musical collaborator Slash will open all the concerts on the second leg, including the performance at the St. Pete Times Forum on Friday, February 18 at 8:00 p.m.

Osbourne recently completed a run of overseas festival appearances and headlining performances, including his first ever concert in Israel - a September 28 OZZFest show at Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv.

The Tel Aviv show was described by the as “one of the most important rock events in Israel, if not THE most important…There is no one that can contest Ozzy Osbourne's charisma and madness. Park Hayarkon was awash with energies and foam at the main performance of the Ozzfest…” Elsewhere, noted: “We have waited for years and finally it happened--Ozzfest arrived to the holy land. And as much as the anticipation was high - it shrinks in comparison to the real thing that happened on stage. Ozzy Osbourne lifted Tel Aviv with a crazy show. Osbourne managed to lift people up as only he can do. With simplicity and (relative) modesty, the prince of darkness gave his heart and soul with big love to the Israeli crowd and managed to jump and touch every single one of the tens of thousands of fans present.” The added, “The crowd was versatile and colorful, the other bands on the bill were great, but the real star of Ozzfest was, undoubtedly, Ozzy Osbourne. The metal legend last night at Hayarkon Park gave a show worth living for.”

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 second single from Scream).
