Ozzy Osbourne and Friends are set to kick off their upcoming tour in Helsinki, Finland on May 23, and guitarist Zakk Wylde has opened up about it.
Speaking with Gibson.com, Zakk explained how he will work his way into the set with Ozzy's current band:
"[Current Ozzy band members] Gus G., Blasko and Tommy [Clufetos] are coming out and doing a bunch of tunes, then I come out with Blasko and Tommy and we end up doing a bunch of stuff from the era when I was with 'the boss' [Ozzy], from No Rest for the Wicked . . . all the way through everything I've ever done with him. Then Geezer comes out and we do a bunch of Sabbath stuff and at the end, Slash and everybody - Geezer, Slash, Gus - and we all play 'Paranoid'."
Ozzy was originally scheduled to hit the road with the original Black Sabbath lineup this summer. The tour was shelved, however, when Tony Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma. Sabbath is currently working on a new album in the UK.
