Ozzy Osbourne is once again setting out on tour, but this time for a new, non-musical endeavor. Come July, the heavy metal legend will hit the road with his son Jack for an upcoming History channel travel show, Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour.

The hour-long, 10-part series will find the father-son duo crossing off a list of iconic landmarks from their geographical bucket list, making stops at storied sites like Mt. Rushmore, Stonehenge, and Roswell. The self-proclaimed history buffs will also visit a number of artifact hot spots, from a Cold War era missle silo to vintage tank collector Allan Cors’ private museum of working war machines.

“[It’s] like a father and son spoof on history. We went to Stonehenge and met a guy who thinks he’s the f—ing reincarnation of King Arthur. And we went to Bletchley Park to see the machine [Alan Turing] used to break the [German] kind,” Ozzy told Billboard in October. “We’re going to Mount Rushmore, to the abandoned silos where America used to have their Minutemen missiles and all that. It’s educational for me, actually — history with an Osbourne slant.”

Of course, the Osbournes are no stranger to the small screen. Before the Kardashians ruled reality television, the famous family headed up a day-in-the-life series for MTV called The Osbournes. Its three-year, early 2000s run was one of the channel’s most-viewed shows.

Also on History’s summer slate are scripted war series Six, Roman Empire docu-drama Barbarians Rising, and the previously announced Roots remake, plus a two-hour documentary tracing Alexander Hamilton’s life.

Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour premieres July 27 at 10 p.m. on History.
