Ozzy Osbourne will be retiring from the road after a lengthy world tour.
Taking place over two years, Osbourne will zig-zag globe on his “No More Tours 2,” a reference to his 1992 tour of the same name. Longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde, Blasko, Tommy Clufetos and Adam Wakeman will join the Prince of Darkness on this final run.
“I’ve been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers,” Osbourne said in a press release. “I’m looking at this final tour as being a huge celebration for my fans and anyone who has enjoyed my music over the past five decades.”
The announcement was made at Osbourne’s Los Angeles home.
The tour starts with a pair of festival shows in Florida at Jacksonville’s Welcome to Rockville and Fort Lauderdale’s FortRock on April 27 and 29 respectively, before heading to Central and South America, and Europe before heading back to the U.S. in August. Stone Sour will open.
Tickets for these shows go on sale to the general public starting Saturday, February 17 at 10:00 a.m. local time. Citi® cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning Wednesday, February 14 at 10:00 a.m. local time until Friday, February 16 at 10:00 p.m. local time through Citi’s Private Pass® program.
Osbourne’s final tour announcement comes on the heels of similar announcements from Elton John and Paul Simon.
