Ozzy Osbourne to Have Birmingham Tram Named in His Honor [Updated]
Bust out the “Crazy Train” jokes, Ozzy Osbourne is about to have a Midland Metro tram named after him in Birmingham, England.
Ozzy’s hometown of Birmingham will launch its official Ozzy tram on Thursday, May 26. The tram (also known as a light-rail) is actually a brand new extension connecting Bull Street to New Street Station. Final testing of the tram is still continuing as of this post.
"It's a great honor to have a new tram named after me, I'm proud to be a Brummie and this means so much,” Ozzy tells the Birmingham Mail.
The first part of the £128 million, 0.7-mile extension of Midland Metro will actually bear Ozzy Osbourne’s name. Ozzy himself will appear at the new tram stop in Corporation St. at 11AM local time.
Black Sabbath will continue their final tour beginning June 1 at Hungary’s Budapest Arena. Sabbath will tour throughout the year, with the group’s last show currently taking place Dec. 4 in Brazil. There’s no word if this will be Black Sabbath’s final performance.
After Black Sabbath do hang it up, Ozzy is expected to focus back on his solo career.
