According to the Birmingham Mail, legendary heavy metal singer Ozzy Osborne will have a Midland Metro tram named after him in his native Birmingham, England.
The BLACK SABBATH frontman is scheduled to meet the tram bearing his name this Thursday (May 26) at the new Corporation Street stop at 11 a.m.
Ozzy said: “It’s a great honor to have a new tram named after me, I’m proud to be a Brummie and this means so much.”
The tram-naming ceremony was organized by Centro, the delivery arm of the West Midlands Integrated Transport Authority (ITA).
Trams returned to the streets of Birmingham city center for the first time in more than 60 years last December when the Metro started running to the new stop in Bull Street.
The previous month saw Her Majesty the Queen visit the stop and name one of the new trams after former Centro chairman Cllr Angus Adams, who died in 2012 and was a key figure in driving through the extension plans.
