The Osbourne boys' travel show on History promises an unusual tour
Ozzy Osbourne is no stranger to touring the world, but the trailer for his new reality show promises a tour unlike any other.
In the upcoming History series, Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour, the Black Sabbath frontman will travel the world with his son Jack. The father-son duo will find themselves visiting popular tourist attractions such as Mt. Rushmore and Stonehenge, as well as locations suited for more hardcore history buffs like Al Capone’s jail cell.
The trailer has the legendary rocker not fully prepared for the less glamorous side of traveling the country in an RV. The trip seems to quickly improve for Ozzy as he gets to wear a space suit, meet some geishas, and drive a tank.
“A father and son spoof on history,” is how Ozzy described the show to Billboard in October. “We went to Stonehenge and met a guy who thinks he’s the f—ing reincarnation of King Arthur,” he continued. “And we went to Bletchley Park to see the machine [Alan Turing] used to break the [German] kind. 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.”
The pair is no stranger to reality television as they were a large part of the genre’s boom in popularity with the early 2000s MTV series, The Osbournes.
Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour premieres July 27 at 10 p.m. ET on History.
