Scissor Sisters, Ozzy Osbourne to play free iTunes Festival gigs

Plus Tony Bennett to play in London Roundhouse venue this summer

Scissor Sisters, Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Bennett will play free London gigs as part of the iTunes Festival this July.

The acts are the first to be announced for this year’s gig series – with the shows again set to take place in the Roundhouse venue in Camden. Tickets will be free to competition winners – see for details.

Scissor Sisters will play on July 1, Bennett will play on July 2, while Osbourne will play on July 3. Each performance will be recorded and available to subsequently buy from iTunes.

More acts for the festival, which last year inadvertently staged Oasis’ last ever London gig, are set to be announced soon.
