Sharon Osbourne discussed Ozzy Osbourne’s last performance in Birmingham, United Kingdom, during an episode of The Talk. Sharon stated that Osbourne has always been a working-class hero and emphasized the significance of Birmingham to him. Over the past few years, Ozzy Osbourne has battled a variety of health issues. Due to his worsening influenza, he had to postpone tour dates in previous years. Then, the vocalist sustained a neck injury when he fell at his Los Angeles residence. The metal rods inserted after his 2003 ATV accident were dislodged, necessitating neck surgery. Unfortunately, the musician’s health issues persisted in the years that followed. Osbourne announced in 2020 that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The Prince of Darkness was forced to undergo multiple additional operations as a result of his increasing difficulty walking. As his daughter Kelly had disclosed in the preceding months, he would undergo a life-altering operation.
Following this operation, the musician initially communicated with Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society. According to Wylde, Osbourne told him that he felt like he had given birth after this difficult operation. The rock star spent the following days resting and avoiding the stage for some time. On August 8, Osbourne surprised his fans by attending the closing ceremony of the 2022 Commonwealth Games. During the special finale performance in Birmingham, he performed alongside bandmate Tony Iommi. The fellow musicians performed the 1970 hit song “Paranoid” by Black Sabbath. The fans were ecstatic to see him after his complicated surgery.
Sharon Osbourne recently stated that the show’s producers were excited to have Ozzy participate. The performance was also significant for Ozzy, who performed in his hometown of Birmingham. Sharon stated that Ozzy has always been proud of his roots and that he will continue to be a working-class hero. Sharon Osbourne remarked as follows: “They asked us six months ago, and Ozzy could not have done it before his last surgery. They observed Ozzy at comic-con and said, “All right, bring him over!” We were like, ‘All right.’ Literally, it took six days after their phone call for him to be admitted. It was simply astounding. I mean, Birmingham is now an incredible city. It is cosmopolitan and beautiful, and regardless of his accomplishments or actions, he will always be from Birmingham. He is so proud to be a native of Birmingham.” She continued by remarking that he was a natural performer. “He has an organic approach to everything. But he is and always will be a hero of the working class.” You can view the tweet that follows.
