Yes, that was Ozzy Osbourne walking down Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg.

The heavy metal legend was in Williamsburg last week with his son, Jack, visiting the colonial area’s new musket range and touring Historic Jamestowne.

While Colonial Williamsburg has been mum on the reason for the pair’s visit, which ran from Thursday to Sunday, it’s possible they were there to film segments for a new TV show.

“We were indeed thrilled to have Ozzy and Jack Osbourne visit the Revolutionary City on Friday,” said Colonial Williamsburg spokesman Joe Straw. “Their visit underscores Colonial Williamsburg’s undiminished relevance and the broad appeal of our new and more engaging programming.”

The former Black Sabbath frontman told Rolling Stone magazine earlier this year that he and his son are filming a TV show in which they visit unique historical sites, including Stonehenge, Mount Rushmore and the Alamo.

At the musket range, where the pair were photographed wearing traditional tricorn hats, Ozzy Osbourne “was right on target with his shots,” Colonial Williamsburg posted on its Facebook page.

The pair also toured the shops on Duke of Gloucester Street and “had a particularly good time in the wig shop,” Colonial Williamsburg posted.

The Osbournes also took a personal tour of Historic Jamestowne with Bill Kelso, the site’s director of archaeology, and Ozzy Osbourne was spotted having lunch at Second Street American Bistro.
