Brian May was thrilled to see Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi perform during the closing ceremony of the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

May shared a clip of the performance via Instagram along with the caption, “That’s the way to do it!!!” He added, “Must say I
got a bit emotional seeing Ozzy and Iommi on stage together again. Epic!!!”


As previously reported, Osbourne’s performance with Iommi was the singer’s first since performing with Post Malone at the 2019 American Music Awards.


Osbourne and Iommi recently reunited on “Degradation Rules,” a track on Osbourne's upcoming studio album Patient Number 9. In addition to Iommi, guests on the album include Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Chad Smith, Robert Trujillo, Duff McKagan, Zakk Wylde, Josh Homme and Mike McCready.

Patient Number 9 comes out on September 9 and is available of pre-save/pre-order here.
