Get ready to rock, Nanaimo!!

Bourne to be Ozz: the Canadian Ozzy & Black Sabbath Experience is coming to the Port Theatre this summer.

The Godfather of Heavy Metal, Ozzy Osbourne has been rockin’ the world since the formation of Black Sabbath back in 1968. With worldwide record sales topping 100 million, Ozzy – as a solo artist & a founding member of Black Sabbath – has dominated the genre of heavy metal for over 40 years. With heavy guitar riffs and signature vocals, Ozzy’s music continues to be as popular as ever today.

Bourne to be Ozz is the creation of lead singer, Jeff Koopman - born from his passion for Ozzy & Black Sabbath’s musical madness. Joined onstage by band members John Tait (guitar), Tony Shigeoka (drums), Darron Cound (bass guitar), and Walter Martella (keyboards), fans of Ozzy will be in awe at the authenticity of their high energy performance.

Talented musicians, all, with years of performance experience, the five came together in 2016 to create a tribute of the highest caliber, in all its heavy metal mayhem. Complete with the “War Pigs” air raid sirens, and the rippin’ lead guitar solos synonymous of Randy Rhoads, Jake E. Lee, & Zakk Wylde, Bourne to be Ozz creates a show of unrivalled attention to detail.

The hard rockin’ tribute features hits including Bark at the Moon, Children of the Grave, Mr. Crowley, Crazy Train, and War Pigs, to name a few. Don’t miss out on the chance to see your favourite Ozzy & Sabbath hits performed live; a MUST for real fans!
