Zakk Sabbath, an all-star roster of heavy metal legends led by Zakk Wylde, will bring down the house at the finale of “The Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling”® on Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019.
Sturgis, SD (December 11, 2018) – Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, one of the most talented heavy metal musicians ever to pick up a guitar, will bring the hard rock supergroup Zakk Sabbath, and the full thunderous fury of Black Sabbath hits, to the Wolfman Jack Stage on Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019. Together with bassist Blasko (Ozzy, Rob Zombie) and drummer Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age), the group will bring Buffalo Chip fans the most insane jams from Black Sabbath’s first six albums.
