HALDEN, Norway: “Can you believe we’ve been doing this for 48 fucking years?”, frontman Ozzy Osbourne said with disbelief. This June Ozzy and Black Sabbath will show up at Tons of Rock in Norway, the band’s last stop on the last tour sending the crowd wild where half never heard about Sabbath. They might be old enough to get a free bus pass but they can still lay down perfectly executed tracks and guitar riffs with ease. Age can’t beat Black Sabbath.
Rock and metal. For a few days every summer the seaside city of Halden southeast of Norway turns out to be the city of metal and rock music attracting rock fans at the fortress. Tons of Rock is the most important rock and metal festival in Norway.
This summer’s undisputed highlight is the legends of Black Sabbath. In addition, stars like Alice Cooper, Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe and Norwegian Raga Rockers will perform along dozens of bands in many genres. Nearest airport to Halden is Oslo Airport Rygge, south of the Norwegian capital.
