According to UPI.com, Ozzy Osbourne will perform in Japan for the first time in seven years, promoters say. The British rocker will perform at Tokyo's Nippon Budokan on October 27, marking the ninth time the 59-year-old singer has rocked a Japanese locale, Japan Today reported Sunday.As previously reported, OZZY OSBOURNE will perform at Affliction Entertainment's upcoming October event. "Affliction: Day of Reckoning" takes place October 11 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. A heavyweight bout between Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett headlines the event. Osbourne, who is one of many musicians under contract to Affliction Clothing, had been rumored as a possible performer at Affliction's debut event in May, but MEGADETH was instead booked for the gig. Ozzy Osbourne has begun work on his next studio album , his wife/manager Sharon revealed during a recent interview. The new disc will follow up 2007's "Black Rain", which has sold more than 500,000 copies in the U.S. and was Osbourne's first all-new studio recording in six years. The Osbourne family is slated to return to television this fall in a new "reality variety" series on Fox tentatively titled "The Osbournes: Loud and Dangerous". Fox has ordered six episodes of the one-hour series, which will be the family's first foray into TV since their MTV reality show, "The Osbournes", became a pop culture phenomenon several years ago. The new series will feature musical performances, comedy sketches, and game-show competitions.
