Ozzy Osbourne is in Birmingham right now as we publish this to formally unveil a new tram bearing his name. Rock n roll… ing stock. Ha ha!

“It’s a great honour to have a new tram named after me”, says Osbourne in a statement. “I’m proud to be a Brummie and this means so much”.

Osbourne is appearing at the Corporation Street tram stop for the naming ceremony. The tram will run on the city’s newly extended tram line, which is expected to begin carrying passengers next week, after driver training has been completed.

Trams were reintroduced to Birmingham city centre after 60 years last December, three days after Osbourne’s 67th birthday. No, those two things aren’t actually connected, but I felt like we hadn’t had enough tram facts and needed to crowbar something in to round this story off. Now I have. Bye.
