Rock star Ozzy Osbourne has vowed to return to live performing in the summer, months after suffering serious injuries in a quad bike accident.
Osbourne has said he will be ready to resume touring in the summer
The 55-year-old musician told reporters he will headline his annual Ozzfest rock tour in the US.
"Number one, I'm not gonna die. I'm gonna make the tour. I'm not dead, I'm ready to rock, man," he said.
Osbourne, who expressed fears he would never perform again, denied paramedics would be on standby next to the stage.
He crashed his four-wheel quad bike at his estate in Buckinghamshire in December.
The bike flipped over and landed on him,
leaving him with fractures in eight ribs and a vertebra.
Footage of the accident was shown for the first time on ABC television in the US on Friday.
The Ozzfest tour will play 26 venues across the United
States, beginning in Hartford, Connecticut on 10 July and wrapping up in West Palm Beach, Florida on 10 September.
The line-up features Judas Priest, Slayer and Slipknot.
"It's harder than hard, and my God, is it ugly," Ozzy's wife and manager Sharon
Osbourne said of the line-up.
