Ozzy Osbourne ‘dying to come back to the UK’ says Black Sabbath star

Tony Iommi gives Osbourne health update

Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne is eager to return home to the UK, one of the stars of the band has said.

Speaking during a pre-recorded interview on BBC Breakfast Tony Iommi shared a health update.

The star said: “He’s okay. I heard from him a couple of days ago. He’s doing alright.

“I think he’s going to have another operation. He’s had so many operations now.

“But he’s dying to get back here, he really wants to come back to England and live here again.”

The update comes after Ozzy was pictured out and about with a carer recently in LA going for a walk.

Tony appeared on the show this morning (April 28) to talk to Arts and Entertainment correspondent Colin Paterson about the forthcoming Black Sabbath ballet from the Birmingham Royal Ballet.

When asked whether Ozzy might be in the audience for the forthcoming production, Tony said: “He might well be if he’s back in time, he’ll be here, yeah.”

Adding: “Ozzy’s not really involved. Well, he’s in the States anyway. I’m the only one here.”

The Birmingham Royal Ballet and acclaimed Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta will be putting on its first production of a heavy metal ballet.

Acosta, who is the director of the Birmingham Royal Ballet, got the blessing of Tony for the production, which uses the music of Black Sabbath.

Tony admitted he didn’t know “a dot” about the dance form. Adding: “I’ve never been to a ballet.”

The production will pay tribute to the band and Black Sabbath’s humble Birmingham roots.

There will even be a dance representation of Tony losing the tops of two fingers in an accident at a sheet metal factory at the tender age of 17.

Tony said: “Yes, we’ve gone through that, they know all about that.”

Adding: “The whole thing is different and has never been done before.”
