Rocker Ozzy Osbourne will skip a scheduled appearance at Spike TVâ€™s Video Game Awards to make time for Queen Elizabeth II. â€˜The Prince of Darknessâ€™ was invited to perform at the annual Royal Variety Performance in Cardiff, Wales, on November 21, said Osbourneâ€™s spokes-man Lathum Nelson.
Osbourne, 56, will join an international slate of entertainers that includes Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli and New Yorkâ€™s Blue Man Group. His wife, Sharon, will also participate in the programme.
This is the second time Osbourne has been invited to participate in the Royal Variety Performance. A scheduling conflict preventing him from attending last year, Osbourne said in a statement. â€œI cannot turn down this incredible honour twice,â€ he said.
Osbourne, whose latest album Under Cover, was released on November 1, had been scheduled to appear at the Video Game Awards in Los Angeles on November 18.
