Living in Australia, one doesn't get too many opportunities to see you and experience the things that others have all around the world through Ozzfest and of course your many other tours both U.S and European.
Fortunately, my dream finally came true back in 2008, when you made your long journey Down Under for the 'Black Rain' World Tour in March. Till this day, I still pinch myself, as I can not believe that I actually saw your show at the Acer Arena here in Sydney!!! It was the most awesome experience I had ever lived through!!!! My heart broke when you finally said goodbye and left the stage....I felt so empty and so depressed, and have lived with the hope that one day you will return to us again.
With your new album 'Scream', I felt a sense of sheer excitement each time I would hear talks of a 'Scream' World Tour!! Wondering from day to day, when I would hear the announcements for the Australian Tour. Months passed and speculations grew as to whether or not you will tour here. I was so happy when I watched you on the 60 Minutes interview you and Sharon had with Tara Brown all those months ago when you mentioned an Aussie tour!! It was from that day on that I lived in hopes that it would happen very soon. During this time, I would watch every episode of OZ TV, and follow every news item on the net about you.
The special release of The Blizzard Of Ozz/Diary Of A Madman 30th Anniversary Collector’s Box Set was absolutely spectacular news! Then, Jack announced the release of his film, 'God Bless Ozzy Osbourne', and I was so excited that I would be seeing this in the theatres here in Sydney..but..as I waited for release dates for us here...I also found out that the 'Scream' World Tour was officially over as of this month! I was so disappointed but I am still waiting now on confirmation of whether or not we will get to see 'G.B.O.O' on the big screens in Sydney.
Now, there's also rumours of a Black Sabbath Reunion album and tour!! Eventhough Tony diffused these claims...Kelly and Jack mentioned that you are doing something special but can't give out any more information than that. Whatever it is that you are planning, I really do hope that it will include your Australian fans as well. I know I speak for all of the fans here when I say this......"Please include us in your special plans, we love you here just as much as any other fan anywhere in the world!!!!!" God Bless You Ozzy!!! I love you more than life itself!!!!!!
