Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde have reunited! The guitarist has rejoined the Prince of Darkness’ band and they’ll be together onstage for Ozzy’s upcoming 2017 shows!

It was 30 years ago that Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde first teamed up, taking over for the legendary Jake E. Lee. Zakk became an icon in his own right through virtuosic guitar work and his later career with Black Label Society.

Zakk’s had a scattered history with Ozzy, playing with The Boss from 1987-1995, in 1998, from 2001-2004 and from 2006-2009. Wylde has performed on on five Ozzy albums including No Rest For the Wicked and No More Tears, along with three live albums.

In addition to Wylde, Osbourne’s band will continue to feature Blasko on bass, Tommy Clufetos on drums and Adam Wakeman on keyboards. Zakk’s return means guitarist Gus G is out of the band.

“I’m so happy to be getting back on the road with Zakk, Blasko, Tommy and Adam,” says Ozzy Osbourne. “This is what I do. This is where I belong, on the road.”

“I’m really looking forward to The HARDCORE POWAHLIFTING TRAINING SESSIONS with Ozzy as well as playing music in between sets of HEAVY SQUATS, BENCHING and DEADLIFTS,” adds Wylde.

Ozzy has also confirmed a 2018 release date for his next solo album. Will Zakk Wylde be a part of it? We’ll have to wait and see!
