While the tour is an arena outing, Osbourne has chosen to play slightly smaller and more intimate venues in two cities – Phoenix at Comerica Theatre Jan. 26 and Los Angeles at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal CityWalk Feb. 1.

After a performance at this year’s festival in New Orleans Oct. 30, Osbourne begins the first North American leg of the Scream tour in Victoria, B.C., at the Save On Foods Memorial Centre. He then cuts a swath through Canada that includes stops in Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipg, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. U.S. cities on the first leg include Baltimore, New York, E. Rutherford, Cleveland, Grand Rapids and Minneapolis.

Osbourne recently released the “tour edition” of his Scream album, a deluxe, two-CD version that includes unreleased tracks and live recordings. The deluxe version is also available as a four-sided vinyl package.

Tickets for the second leg go on sale Oct. 15. For more information, click here for Ozzy Osbourne’s website.
