Ozzy Osbourne will cement his rock star status at this year’s Kerrang! Awards in Britain when he’s presented with the ceremony’s top honor.
The former Black Sabbath frontman will accept the Legend Award in London on 9 June and he’s playing a special show in the U.K. capital on 21 June to mark the magazine’s 30th anniversary.

Osbourne says, “It’s an incredible honor to be the… recipient of Kerrang’s Legend Award. I’m looking forward to you all going ‘F**king Crazy’ at the 30th Anniversary party on June 21st at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo.”

Kerrang! editor Nichola Browne adds, “We are so unbelievably excited to have Ozzy play this very special show for our 30th birthday celebrations in June.

“We are privileged that the Prince of Darkness can help us mark this momentous milestone in style and it’s guaranteed to be a night to remember. Ozzy has been the mainstay of rock music.

“He’s a much-loved, larger-than-life personality, and it is only fitting that we will be honoring Ozzy with the prestigious Legend Award at this year’s Kerrang! Awards.”
