Rock legends in Bristol
PUBLISHED: 15:15 04 November 2010
AFTER teasing fans with an incredible set at this year’s High Voltage Festival and the release of blistering new album, Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society will play in Bristol next year.
In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New Jersey gas station to become his new guitarist, Zakk Wylde has established himself as a music icon, known and revered the world over.
Writing and recording with Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, inspiring him to create the now legendary band Black Label Society (BLS) in 1998.
Over the past decade, diehard BLS fans - the Berserkers - along with Wylde, have created a heavy metal institution true to his vision of uncompromising, unfiltered, and unrestrained rock ‘n’ roll.
Order of the Black, the outfit’s eighth studio album, was released to critical acclaim in August of this year, and was preceded by Zakk picking up the prestigious Golden God award at the 2010 Kawasaki Metal Hammer Golden God Awards.
Black Label Society will visit the Colston Hall on February 23.
Tickets, priced £18.50, are available via www.livenation.co.uk
