(BW&BK) The Sunset Strip Music Festival - taking place September 10th-12th - will honor the larger than life rock icon Ozzy Osbourne as its Sunset Strip Icon 2009. The tribute actually begins this Thursday, August 20 when Osbourne's immortal image will be unveiled on one of the largest billboards in Los Angeles. It will hang high above the Sunset Strip spanning 12-stories (6,500 square feet tall) off the east side of the famous 9000 Building directly across the street from The Roxy Theatre and Rainbow Bar & Grill. The new signage will be lit at night allowing for its viewing from miles away.

Next, on Thursday, September 10, Osbourne will be honored at a tribute event to kick off the three-day music festival. The tribute event honors icons that have made an impact on the legacy of The Sunset Strip. On Osbourne's first US tour with Black Sabbath in 1970, the band performed a five-night stand (November 11th-15th) at the legendary Whisky A Go-Go.

"This expansive wall not only celebrates our honoree, Ozzy Osbourne, it also serves to welcome everyone to The Sunset Strip and is certain to be a very photographed component of this year's music festival," noted Todd Steadman, executive director of the Sunset Strip Music Festival. - more on this story
