Ozzy Osbourne is set to have a Las Vegas show called 'Hellgate'.

The 66-year-old rocker's wife Sharon Osbourne has revealed she is working on a one-off concert production for her husband to take place in 'Sin City' by Halloween 2016.

Sharon - who has managed Ozzy's career for years - said: ''I'm working right now on a Vegas production for Ozzy. It'll be in time for Halloween and be called 'Hellgate'.''

Although Sharon, 62, is working on the premise it will be a standalone show, if it is successful there is a possibility it could become a residency at one of Las Vegas' top hotels.

If Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy was to land a long-term performing contract he would follow in the footsteps of Britney Spears, Celine Dion and Sir Elton John who have all had successful residencies in the US gambling capital.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Ozzy has never done a stand-alone show in Vegas and there has been huge interest in what he has to offer. Vegas is an amazing spot, which has been a huge hit with the rock crowd. Ozzy would be a top draw and really do something unique.''

Ozzy is due to start work on a new Black Sabbath album - the heavy metal group's 20th studio LP - with his bandmates Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler and producer Rick Rubin in the coming weeks. They plan to follow the record with their last ever tour.
