GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE
BRINGS THE STORY & MUSIC OF “THE PRINCE OF
DARKNESS” TO THE BIG SCREEN
NCM Fathom, Omniverse Vision & Eagle Rock Entertainment Present
One-Night Event Featuring Candid Portrait by Jack Osbourne at
More than 400 Movie Theaters Nationwide
Centennial, Colo. – August 9, 2011 – This August, audiences across the country
will get an unrivalled look into the mind of legendary rock icon Ozzy Osbourne in
God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, an exclusive in-theater Fathom event that will be
broadcast to more than 400 movie theaters nationwide on Wednesday, August
24 and Monday, August 29 at 7:30 p.m. (local time). Shot over the course of
three years, audiences will experience the life story of Ozzy, as seen through the
eyes of his youngest child, producer/filmmaker, Jack Osbourne, who worked
alongside directors Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli.
During the documentary, Ozzy will recount his troubled youth, his early career
with Black Sabbath and the impact of fame and addictions on his first marriage.
Viewers will also witness the second chapter of his life as a family man with
Sharon, during which his addictions grew to a frightening level, as well as hear
Ozzy and his children explain his attempts at staying clean, ultimately resulting in
more than five years of sobriety. Music fans will also see live performances from
around the world, including rare behind the scenes clips of Ozzy on and off
stage, in his dressing rooms pre-show, to his nights in a series of hotel rooms.
Throughout God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, audiences are given an inside look into
the life of a rock star, from the good times to the bad.
Tickets for God Bless Ozzy Osbourne are available at participating theater box
offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. For a complete list of theater
locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom website (theaters and participants

Presented by NCM Fathom, Omniverse Vision and Eagle Rock Entertainment,
God Bless Ozzy Osbourne will be broadcast to nearly 400 select movie theaters
across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.
“This is the most honest portrait of my father. I set out to tell the truth - regardless
of how raw it might be - and I think we accomplished just that,” said Jack
Ozzy Osbourne is a multi-platinum Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and
Grammy®-winning musician. Osbourne's career has spanned four decades (as
both a solo artist and as the lead singer of Black Sabbath) and his music is as
relevant today as ever. Beyond his music career, Osbourne is an author (I AM
OZZY, 2010), advice columnist (Sunday Times, London and Rolling Stone,
America) and the first to have a celebrity-reality television program ("The
Osbournes," which won a 2002 Primetime Emmy Award for "Outstanding Reality
Program"). God Bless Ozzy Osbourne will relive the highs of his triumphs as well as
his voyage to sobriety, which Ozzy regards as his greatest accomplishment.
“During this exclusive Fathom event, Ozzy’s son, Jack, will take the legion of Ozzy
fans on an unbelievable journey experiencing a side of the music legend most
have never seen,” said Dan Diamond, vice president of Fathom.
