Mama, I'm Coming Home

Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne will perform together. They'll play on the same bill this fall during Ozzy's first British arena gigs in eight years

The family that plays together stays together. So it is with the Osbournes. When Ozzy returns to his hometown of Birmingham for his first English arena gigs in eight years, he's bringing along daughter Kelly as his opening act, according to a statement posted on his website earlier this week. The September dates will mark the first time Ozzy and Kelly have shared a concert stage.

''I couldn't be happier about doing my own dates in the U.K. and having Kelly on the bill with me,'' said the proud papa in his statement. He said he regretted not being able to bring the full Ozzfest bill to his homeland, but he'll still have Kelly, Godsmack, Finnish band H.I.M., and ''my full stage show.'' Father and daughter will play London on Sept. 5 and Birmingham on Sept. 7, followed by a tour of other European cities throughout the rest of the month.
