Fan-filmed video footage of Ozzy Osbourne's August 29 performance with his solo band at the first annual Epic Fest — a celebration of the record label on Los Angeles' Sony Pictures lot — can be seen below. His set included "Suicide Solution", "I Don't Know", "Bark At The Moon" and the BLACK SABBATH staples "War Pigs", "Fairies Wear Boots" and "Paranoid".Epic Records president Sylvia Rhone recently told Billboard.com that Osbourne is working on a "really special album." She added, "It's going to be amazing. It's something Ozzy has never done before that he's always wanted to do." Ozzy has not released an all-new solo album since 2010's "Scream", having spent the last few years touring with BLACK SABBATH and recording that band's "13" album. "Scream" was mostly recorded in a studio at Ozzy's home, with little band input, and the singer told The Pulse Of Radio at the time that he'd like to get back to a traditional format for his next solo outing. "At the end of the day, the end result was pretty cool, but I don't know whether I want to continue to do it that way," he said. "I like to… Like the earlier albums, I'd go rehearse and jam out with the band, get some, like, vibe going, you know. I want to incorporate that and this new technology thing, next album." Ozzy has two more solo shows on his calendar for 2015, at the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans on Halloween (October 31) and at Ozzfest Japan in Chiba, Japan on November 22. BLACK SABBATH earlier in the month announced the first details of a world tour that is being billed as "The End". The North American leg will start on January 20, 2016 in Omaha, Nebraska, ending on February 25 in new York City. Dates in Australia and New Zealand have been confirmed for April, with more shows to be announced next month.
