Ozzy Osbourne took the stage at the first NFL game of the season on Friday (September 9), performing one of his latest hits ‘Patient Number 9’ and his classic ‘Crazy Train.’
Ozzy’s official YouTube channel has now released footage from the performance - and shit he’s still killing it.
He ripped into the halftime performance with ‘Patient Number 9,’ - along with his backing band including Andrew Watt on guitar, Ozzy’s longtime drummer Tommy Clufetos, and Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney. For ‘Crazy Train,’ Zakk Wylde joined them onstage on lead guitar.

But fans ended up being pissed off by the coverage of the performance, and rightly so.
Before the ad-break, viewers were promised they’d be shown more of the rock legend onstage. But when the coverage came back, commentators recapped the first two quarters of the Buffalo Bills vs. Los Angeles Rams game, and only lightly touched on the fact that Ozzy was playing - only broadcasting about 15 seconds of his performance.

Thankfully, as of this morning (September 14), Ozzy has gone and uploaded the full performance to YouTube. Check it out up top.
