Win tickets to see Black Label Society
Enter to win a pair of tickets to see Black Label Society at the Vogue Theatre on Novemeber 3
Perryscope Concerts and Vogue Productions present Black Label Society playing the Vogue Theatre on November 3. Fronted by former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, the Los Angeles–based metal band returns to Vancouver this fall for a headlining event with guests Protest the Here, Pop Evil and eart-Set Self-Destruct.
For over 20 years, Wylde served as Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist, a collaboration that produced a string of multi-platinum albums, including No More Tears and Ozzmosis. He has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, and is a major influence on a new battalion of rock guitarists currently popular today. Wylde's even got his own custom guitar lines for Gibson and Epiphone, which includes the signature Gibson Les Paul with a bull's-eye graphic.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Wylde picked up the guitar at 14 and started playing in a few local bands during and after high school, earning his stripes in a group called Zyris and making ends meet in a series of menial jobs. A fortuitous run-in with a rock photographer helped land Wylde an audition with Ozzy Osbourne, who was looking for a new guitarist; the 20-year old soon found out he was joining the ranks of Tony Iommi, Randy Rhoads, and Jake E. Lee as Ozzy's right-hand man.
Several gigantic albums and multiple stadium tours followed. During his off-time, Wylde completed a solo record, an album under the name Pride & Glory, and, in 1998, formed the now legendary Black Label Society, which went on to earn its own fervent fanbase. In addition to the nine studio albums, Black Label Society has released one live album, two compilation albums, one EP, and three video albums. Black Label Society is comprised of Zakk Wylde (lead guitar, lead vocals), Nick Cantanese (rhythm guitar), John DeServio (bass), and Chad Szeliga (drums).
Joining Black Label Society at the Vogue will be Protest the Hero, which has made its mark on the hard rock, hardcore, heavy metal, and post-whatever scenes.
