This August, audiences across the country will get an unrivaled look into the mind of legendary rock icon Ozzy Osbourne in God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, (see the video’s below) an exclusive in-theater event that will be broadcast to movie theaters nationwide on Wednesday August 24 and Monday, August 29 at 7:30 p.m.

Packed with never-before-seen Black Sabbath footage and recent solo tour clips, fans are set to enjoy an incredibly unique experience, by producer and son of the Prince of Darkness himself, Jack Osbourne. Fellow musicians such as Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee and others will also share stories, while an exclusive interview with the Osbourne family explains why bringing Ozzy’s storied history to life — through the eyes of his son Jack — was the perfect motivation to capture one of music’s greatest icons in candid splendor

Osbourne rose to prominence as lead vocalist of the pioneering English rock band Black Sabbath, whose radically different and intentionally dark sound spawned the heavy metal genre. Osbourne’s four-decade track record as the wildest man in rock is unprecedented, but his personal struggles have been shrouded in secrecy—until now.
