Ozzy Osbourne performed his classic track Bark At The Moon during yesterday’s solar eclipse in Illinois – watch the video above.

The Black Sabbath icon and his band started performing a few minutes before the world went dark as the moon passed between the Earth and the sun, around 1.20pm local time.

He was in the middle of the song at the peak of the event, which lasted around seven minutes in total.

Ozzy told the crowd at Moonfest 2017: “I don’t think I’ve ever been in this part of the world before. I love you all. Thank you for coming to see me.”

The show was part of his current US tour, which features returned guitarist Zakk Wylde, He has three dates still to play – dates below.
