Ozzy Osbourne To Perform On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Ozzy Osbourne will be the featured musical guest on ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on the Friday, March 27 episode (which will actually air the morning of March 28 beginning at 12:05 a.m. EST).

Osbourne is currently working in Los Angeles on his 10th studio album, which will follow up 2007's "Black Rain". The new disc is expected in stores by Thanksgiving of this year.

Osbourne's long-running traveling metal festival, Ozzfest, will not take place in 2009. A press release issued by Osbourne's publicist stated that the singer does not want to tour until he has a new album in stores later in the year, adding, "Thus, Ozzy has decided to put his namesake festival Ozzfest on hold this year." The announcement is not really surprising, given the festival's scaled-down reconfiguration as a one-day event last year after more than a decade as a full-length summer tour.

In addition to the general slowdown in both the economy and the concert business, Ozzfest began facing competition last year from the Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour and Crüe Fest.
