Ozzy Announces Farewell Tour

Less than a year after playing his final shows with Black Sabbath, legendary metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne has announced that his next solo tour will also be his last. The two-year farewell jaunt will begin in May 2018 with shows in Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. Those will be followed by some early June dates in Russia before Ozzy embarks on on a month-long European leg, including appearances at most of the summer festivals. Ozzy will then headline a North American concert tour, details of which will be revealed in 2018. The trek is expected to end sometime in 2020, after which Ozzy will end extended global touring but may still play select shows from time to time. He said in a statement, “People keep asking me when I’m retiring. This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.” Ozzy will be joined on the tour by guitarist Zakk Wylde, bassist Rob “Blasko” Nicholson, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboard player Adam Wakeman — all longtime collaborators. Black Sabbath played its final shows this past February, capping a 49-year run with two concerts in the band’s hometown of Birmingham, England. Ozzy vowed to continue with his solo career, although his wife and manager Sharon has hinted at Ozzy calling a day by the time he’s 70 years old — which the singer will hit on December 3rd, 2018.
