The prodigal son returns! Guitar hero Zakk Wylde is reuniting with his heavy metal mentor Ozzy Osbourne for a 2017 tour, after a decade-long split.
"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," jokes the gym-obsessed guitarist.
It's been 30 years since Zakk joined Ozzy's band, and 10 years since the pair recorded together, for Ozzy's 2007 release Black Rain.
"I'm so happy to be getting back on the road with Zakk, Blasko, Tommy and Adam," says Ozzy. "This is what I do. This is where I belong, on the road."
Initial 2017 tour dates are as follows:
July 14: Oshkosh, WI, Rock USA Festival
July 16: Chicago, IL, Chicago Open Air Festival
August 9: Sturgis, SD, Buffalo Chip
August 21: Cartersville, IL, Moonstock Festival
