Ozzy Osbourne is the ultimate crowd pleaser. With the Black Sabbath European tour tabled while guitarist Tony Iommi recovers from lymphoma, the Ozzy & Friends European tour kicked off last night (May 23) in Helsinki, Finland. Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler and longtime Ozzy guitarist Zakk Wylde joined the Prince of Darkness for a hit parade at the Hartwall Arena.

Under the Ozzy & Friends moniker, the metal legend is backed by his current band — guitarist Gus G., bassist Blasko and drummer Tommy Clufetos, who will man the kit for Sabbath during the festival dates that they did not cancel. The cast of musicians then revolves as Ozzy’s other famous friends join him onstage.

Butler joined Ozzy for Sabbath classics ‘Iron Man,’ ‘War Pigs,’ ‘N.I.B.,’ ‘Fairies Wear Boots’ and ‘Into the Void.’ Wylde performed on ‘Fairies’ and ‘Void,’ and stuck around for ‘I Don’t Wanna Change the World,’ ‘Crazy Train,’ ‘Mama I’m Coming Home.’ Butler returned to the stage for ‘Paranoid.’

Have a look for yourself at all the videos below. There is also footage of ‘Suicide Solution’ and ‘The Ultimate Sin.’
