Ozzy Osbourne, Crystal Castles and Lucero shows announced

Ozzy Osbourne, who just launched a column in Rolling Stone called Ask Dr. Ozzy, in which he offers health and diet tips (no, really), hits the Pepsi Center with Slash on Tuesday, February 8, as part of an eighteen-month long world tour, which includes his first-ever show in Israel. Tickets to see the Ozzman, who also just released an expanded two-disc version of his Scream album, range from $29.50 to $79.50 and are on sale now.

Crystal Castles, meanwhile, who just mesmerized a sold-out Ogden Theatre a few months ago, returns to the area on New Year's Eve for a show at the Boulder Theater.

Finally, Lucero, who just opened two nights for Social Distortion at the Fillmore Auditorium, visit the Bluebird Theater on Sunday, December 5. Drag the River's Chad Price and Jon Snodgrass are slated to open the show.
