Marilyn Manson has been added as the opening act for Ozzy Osbourne when the Rock legend plays Riverbend Music Center this coming summer.

Part of Osbourne's farewell "No More Tours 2" road trip, the Cincinnati show was first announced last fall. But the 2019 tour had to be postponed after Ozzy reportedly re-aggravated an old injury while recovering from pneumonia.

The rescheduled Cincinnati date is June 4, 2020.

“Marilyn is killer live,” Osbourne says in a press release.  “He’s so fucking out there, and if I think that, then look out, we’re all fucked.”

This isn't Manson's first time on the road with Ozzy.

"I’m honored to do it again. This is one not to miss.” Manson says. “I’ve toured with Ozzy many times and it’s always been fucking spectacular."

Manson is also no stranger to Riverbend — he performed there this past July with Rob Zombie. He also played Riverbend with The Smashing Pumpkins in 2015 and with Slipknot in 2016.
