    Ozzy Osbourne in Israel

    English rock star Ozzy Osbourne has pleased fans, by arriving at Ben-Gurion Airport on a private plane Sunday evening, along with his family members. Osbourne and his wife, Sharon, 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 have plans to visit the Holy City of 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 in a much talked about show that is set to cost millions of dollars to produce.
