The second leg of Ozzy Osbourne's U.S. tour kicks off on Wednesday, and the Prince of Darkness has some tour dates in The Lone Star State.

Ozzy had Rob Halford opening for him on the first leg of the tour, and now Slash will step up to warm up audiences for the Oz man.  Ozzy called Slash "a dear friend" and is looking forward to the outing, saying, "It's great to be working with people you like working with."

Slash also had some really nice things to say about Ozzy as well.
