“You never know what to expect with Ozzy, but you can be sure it will be over the top,” noted Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “He puts on an incredible show and this is one of those performances you just can’t miss. You may not have another opportunity to see the legendary Ozzy Osbourne live on stage.”In addition to Osbourne’s August 9 performance, other performers already set for Sturgis Buffalo Chip include The Doobie Brother (Aug. 7), Lynyrd Skynyrd (Aug. 8), George Thorogood and the Destroyers (Aug. 10), Blink-182 (Aug.10) and Alter Bridge (Aug. 11).As you’d expect, it’s not all music at Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
