Ozzy Osbourne will be the subject of A&E Network’s Emmy Award winning Biography series. A new documentary special, Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne, celebrating one of classic rock’s biggest stars, will premiere on Labor Day (Mon., Sept. 7) at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The program features exclusive interviews and archival footage, and delves into the career of the man who has personified rock and roll rebellion for decades. Watch several previews below.

From the July 27 announcement: Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne traces Ozzy’s life from his childhood in poverty and time in prison, to fronting the iconic Black Sabbath and a successful solo career, to one of rock’s elder statesman and a lovable 21st century television dad. The two-hour documentary explores how Osbourne has continually reinvented himself and his career to propel himself toward greater success. The Grammy-winning artist reflects on the intimate details of his successes, failures, and his unique ability for survival and perseverance-including never-before-seen interviews about his Parkinson’s diagnosis, which he revealed on Jan. 21.

The documentary, a selection of the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, also features interviews with his wife Sharon, and children Kelly and Jack Osbourne, as well as friends and fellow musicians including Rick Rubin, Ice-T, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Jonathan Davis, Post Malone and more.

Osbourne released a new studio album, Ordinary Man, in February, his first new solo music in almost ten years. On Feb. 17, he canceled the entire North American run of his “No More Tours 2.”

“I just can’t wait to get well and get back on the road again,” he said at the time he disclosed the Parkinson’s. “That’s what’s killing me. I need it, you know.”

His U.K. and European dates, already postponed several times due a slew of well documented medical issues including a fall, broken bones and pneumonia, are still listed as beginning on Oct. 23. All other 2020 tours of any significance have been postponed or canceled altogether, due to the pandemic.
