Prince of Darkness in Israel : English rock star Ozzy Osbourne arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport on a private plane Sunday evening, along with his family members.


Osbourne and his wife, Sharon, who also served as his personal manager, held a press conference at a Tel Aviv hotel.


Asked whether he had any hesitations about visiting Israel, on the backdrop of the latest cancellations by international artists, he replied that he tries to stay away from politics because "I wouldn't know what I was talking about."

His wife added that "Britain has the IRA and no one cancels concerts there." Asked why it took him so long to arrive, Osbourne said, "I don't know, I was drunk for years."


The family is slated to visit Jerusalem on Monday. On Tuesday, Osbourne is expected to meet with Ynet fans at Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park at around 4 pm, and will later watch performances by the Korn and Soulfly bands, as part of the Ozzfest. At 8:55 pm, he is scheduled to take the stage.


Meanwhile, the Yarkon Park is preparing for the rock singer's performance. The Exhibition Grounds' gates will open at 4:30 pm Tuesday, and the public is advised to arrive with public transportation or by foot.
