Jan. 16 Ozzy Osbourne w/ Slash Qwest Center, 455 N. 10th St. 7:30 p.m., 21+, $29.50-$75, 422.1212 qwestcenteromaha.com If you happen to come across a strange spectacle on the northern edge of downtown next Sunday, fret not … it’s merely the Crazy Train, and it came to rock out. British head-banger, and self-described “Prince of Darkness” Ozzy Osbourne is like your favorite slinky tumbling down an endless staircase … you have no idea how it keeps going, but through some miracle of science, it does. His career has had more lives than Robert Downey, Jr., and has taken more twists and turns than the Autobahn. From Black Sabbath to his reality television career and forming the ubiquitous mega-tour Ozzfest, he’s still going strong at 62, dropping the double-album Scream last fall — which includes the new sports arena staple, “Let Me Hear You Scream.” Opening is former Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist (and top hat aficionado) Slash, who will hopefully coat the stage in gooey 1980s rock anthems … mullet and Trans Am optional.
