Little Ozzy may only be 4'8," but he embodies the shredding howl and manic, larger-than-life personality of the full-size Prince of Darkness. Having surprised Sharon Osbourne on the latest season of America's Got Talent with his rendition of "Mama, I'm Coming Home," Little Ozzy will take the House of Blues stage on May 18 to belt out a number of hits from big Ozzy's solo career and from his stint with classic-rock mammoths Black Sabbath. A cross necklace swings from the pintsize performer's neck as he flawlessly covers the echoing "ay" of "Crazy Train" and the monolithic stomp of "Iron Man."
Like a jukebox with devil horns, opener Judas Beast blasts through tracks from the entire back catalogs of two British heavy metal giants: Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. From Rob Halford's mainstream '80s hits such as "Breaking the Law" to the literature-inspired sagas of famed Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson, the tribute act delivers it all in the signature, high-pitched wail of each frontman.
