Ozzy Osbourne will be going on tour again, but this year, he's saying the tickets will be free.

Sharon Osbourne said he's trying to line up some corporate sponsors to cover the costs of the tour. This raises the spectre of branded everything, from jumpsuits, like NASCAR drivers wear, to images on the seats at the venues. I suppose I could tolerate that if admission was free. As Morgan Webb put it in one of her Morgan Minutes on G4, "Ads are how you get stuff without paying for it."

But there still seems something wrong with the idea of going to a rock show and seeing Viagra banners hanging from the rafters. It seems kind of. . .commercial.
