The proud father and his, erm, precocious daughter join forces...

OZZFEST may be off the calendar in the UK this year, but Ozzy Osbourne has announced two arena shows in the UK for September – and he's bringing daughter KELLY to fill the support slot!

The father and daughter team, who both recently split from label Sony, are to appear at:
Wembley Arena (September 5)
Birmingham NEC (7)

The shows are Ozzy Osbourne's first headline shows in the UK in eight years, and it will be the first time Kelly and he have performed on the same stage together.

Him and Godsmack are also on the bill.

Ozzy Osbourne said: "I couldn’t be happier about doing my own dates in the UK and having Kelly on the bill with me. Unfortunately this means that we won’t be bringing Ozzfest to the UK this year. When we realised we couldn’t get the best bill possible due to many of the bands having previous commitments I decided that this would be a great opportunity to bring my full stage show over to rock the UK!"

Tickets for the dates are priced £32.50 and go on sale 9am on Monday (June 2).

Meanwhile, Kelly has her own headline dates coming up, at:
Nottingham Rock City (June 24)
London Camden Electric Ballroom (25)
Manchester University, Hop And Grape (26)
