Black Sabbath turned London's Hyde Park into a giant mosh pit last night (04.07.14).
The legendary heavy metal band performed a career-spanning set featuring old favourites including 'War Pigs' and 'Iron Man' and material from their new album '13' to the delight of the hoardes gathered for the second night of Barclaycard's British Summer Time.
Ahead of the show, frontman Ozzy Osbourne had celebrated his wedding anniversary with wife Sharon and daughter Kelly with a party backstage, and he appeared to want to continue the celebrations on stage.
The 65-year-old rocker shouted: "Do you know what day it is today? It's my f***ing wedding anniversary. Sharon! Get out here!"
As the band closed their set with classic hit 'Paranoid', rain fell on the crowd - which included actor Johnny Depp - but none of the revellers seemed to mind as they continued singing along until the very end.
Elsewhere on the bill, Soundgarden marked the 20th anniversary of their album 'Superunknown' by playing it in full, with 'Black Hole Sun' a particular highlight.
Barclaycard British Summer Time continues in Hyde Park today (05.07.14) with performances from Reverend and the Makers, The View, Graham Coxon and headliners The Libertines.
