VIDEO: Ozzy Osbourne headlines UK Download Festival

Ozzy Osbourne headlined the third and final night of the Download Festival at Donington Park in Leicestershire, UK on June 10, and video from the event is streaming online.

The rocker’s 15-song set mixed Black Sabbath classics with solo hits, opening with the title track to 1983’s “Bark At The Moon” before delivering a pair of songs from his 1980 solo debut, “Mr. Crowley” and “I Don’t Know.”

Alongside a lineup that included guitarist Zakk Wylde, bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman, Osbourne rocked three Black Sabbath tracks during the show: “Fairies Wear Boots”, “War Pigs” and the finale of “Paranoid.”

The singer topped a bill that included Marilyn Manson, Shinedown and Black Veil Brides, among others.

“Thank you Download Festival,” posted Ozzy on social media after the show. “I hope you had a great time, I know I did.”

Osbourne’s three-year “No More Tours 2” trek – which celebrates five decades of music since the 1970 release of Black Sabbath’s self-titled debut album and opened at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Jacksonville, FL on April 27 – will mark the end of global touring for the legendary rocker by the time it wraps up in 2020.
