Ozzy To Perform With Metallica and Other Big Names Set To Jam

Ozzy Osbourne took Metallica on their first major tour over twenty years ago, now he will be their special guest at an event celebrating the 25th anniversary of a place that for many years didn’t deem him worthy of admission: the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is celebrating their 25th anniversary with a star heavy two-day event at Madison Square Garden later this month. Many of Hall’s inductees will be jamming on stage with other big name stars as their special guests. They announced Ozzy as Metallica’s special guests as an after thought in an October 2nd update that went largely unnoticed. Luckily, BW&BK caught on to the news and gave it the attention it deserves with a report late Tuesday night.

Metallica isn’t the only one bring out the big guns to join them on stage. Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy will jam with Eric Clapton, while Annie Lennox and Lenny Kravitz will join Aretha Franklin on October 30th, the same night Metallica takes the stage with the Godfather of metal.

On the events kickoff night, October 29th, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will be joined by Sam Moore and Darlene Love, while BB King, John Legend and Smokey Robinson will play with Stevie Wonder. Crosby, Stills & Nash will be playing with James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Bonnie Raitt. Paul Simon will be pulling double duty as a solo artist and with Simon and Garfunkel. Simon will be joined by Little Anthony and The Imperials and Dion for his solo set.

Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Sting have been announced as special guests but the events website didn’t mention who they would be joining on stage. Poor U2 doesn’t have any announced guests on the site at press time. Maybe they’ll pull a Dylan out of their hat? Or a Rolling Stone or one of the Sirs? As in Sir Paul or Sir Elton? Not likely but if we’ll keep any eye on developments as the event quickly approaches.
