"THE OSBOURNES" COMING TO AN MTV NEAR YOU!

The Cleavers, the Bradys, the Cosbys...and now the Osbournes.
It's the next generation of family-oriented sitcom, a reality-
based comedy in which cameras followed around the Prince of
Darkness and his royal family for six months. There's no
script, the situations are real, the family is normal...well,
sort of. Watch a video of the First Family of Rock and Roll
welcoming you to their world
(http://www.mtv.com/onair/osbournes/#), and don't miss the
series premiere March 5 at 10:30 p.m. ET. You wouldn't dare,
now would you?!

THE LONG, COLD WINTER IS NO MATCH FOR THE MADMAN

Ozzy's really asked for it this time. Touring Japan, Korea,
Alaska, Canada...in the middle of winter, no less! There's no
showman out there like Ozzy, and he's not daunted by the
elements. The Ozzman is currently in Japan, playing to sold-
out audiences during his first tour there in four years. The
climax will be a show at Budokan, where a live album and DVD
taping will take place for summer release. (Of course, the
package will be called "Live At Budokan", and the CD will also
feature unreleased B-sides from the DOWN TO EARTH sessions.)
Next, Ozzy will play his first shows ever in Korea, then
heading back to the U.S.A. for gigs in Anchorage and Fairbanks,
Alaska. A well-deserved week off and then two weeks in Canada.
Ozzfests over Europe to follow in late Spring, Ozzfest U.S.
from July through Labor Day, and then what? Season two of "The
Osbournes"?! The recording of the long-awaited Sabbath studio
album? Another Ozzy album? We shall see... (Sometime during
all this madness, though, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has
to squeeze in Ozzy's ceremony for his star on the Walk of Fame.)

OZZFEST NEWS UPDATE

It's easiest for me to answer the most frequently asked
questions sent to OZZMINISTRATOR@aol.com in one fell swoop than
individually so here goes:

1. Which bands are confirmed for Ozzfest?
Ozzy and System of a Down.

2. When will tickets go on-sale? And will there be an Internet
pre-sale?
We're looking to go on-sale next month, and yes, we're working
on an Internet pre-sale.

3. Is Ozzfest coming to Europe?
Yes, Castle Donington looks to be the place for Ozzfest U.K.
this time around, and other shows on the continent are being
looked into. The line-up will be different that the U.S., but
at this time there's no confirmed acts other than Ozzy and
System of a Down for the U.K. edition.

4. Where can I place bets for the Ozzfest bill?
Check out Wolvie's page at
http://www.angelfire.com/band2/wolvie/ozzfest.html. We're just
kidding about the wagering, kids, but that guy's placing odds,
still! He's also got an unofficial Ozzfest poll. Check it out.

5. Can I submit my favorites for the bill to Ozzfest management?
I'm still taking e-mails at OZZMINISTRATOR@aol.com but the
polling has ended. Between the polls that were taken at the
MERRY MAYHEM Tour in November/December and the on-line polling
over the last month we have gathered and tallied over 5000
entries. You have spoken!
