Ozzy Osbourne Announces Farewell World Tour
Ozzy Osbourne has announced his final world tour. The former Black Sabbath frontman will retire from touring following the extensive run.
The run will start next year and continue into 2020, before Ozzy steps back from extensive runs of shows. “People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” Osbourne says in a statement. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”
Ozzy's band will consist of longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (guitar), Blasko (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) & Adam Wakeman (keys).
While Black Sabbath played their final show earlier this year, just last month Ozzy Osbourne stated that he wouldn’t be retiring.
“People around my age go, ‘I’m 65 now. I’m retired.’ Then they f–king die,” he told Rolling Stone. “My father got a bit of cash from the job he had, did the garden and died. And I’m going, ‘That’s a bit of an anticlimax after working so many years in a factory.’ I ain’t retiring. People still want to see me, so what’s there to retire from?”
