ZAKK WYLDE To Perform National Anthem At Tonight's Chicago Bulls Vs. Toronto Raptors Game

OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY frontman Zakk Wylde will perform the U.S. national anthem at tonight's (Wednesday, January 3) NBA game between the Chicago Bulls and the Toronto Raptors at 8 p.m. EST at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Wylde says: "Big BL thanks to the Chicago Bulls for giving me the opportunity to play our national anthem before tonight's game. As a proud son of a WWII veteran, it's always a privilege and honor to perform it."

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's 10th full-length album, "Grimmest Hits", will be released January 19 via Entertainment One (eOne).

Wylde reunited with the iconic BLACK SABBATH frontman for last summer's tour that marked the 30th anniversary of when the two first collaborated together.

Wylde originally joined Osbourne's band three decades ago and backed the legendary frontman from 1987 to 1995, then again in 1998, from 2001 to 2004 and also from 2006 to 2009. His guitar playing can be heard on Osbourne's studio albums "No Rest For The Wicked", "No More Tears", "Ozzmosis", "Down To Earth", "Under Cover" and "Black Rain". The first album with Wylde went double platinum and "No More Tears" remains Ozzy's most successful album, going four times platinum in the United States with four Top 10 songs on the U.S. Billboard chart. Wylde also appeared with Ozzy on three live albums.
