Ozzy Osbourne Announces Farewell Tour

November 6, 2017

Ozzy Osbourne is plotting his final tour, reports Rolling Stone. But this isn’t the “farewell tour” you’d expect. Not only will the tour span two years but the final show of the tour won’t be his last concert.

In a statement, the Prince of Darkness assured fans that while this will be his final tour, he may still play a few shows “here and there” after the tour wraps.

The farewell world tour kicks off in May 2018, taking Osbourne to Mexico, South America, Russia, and Europe (where he’ll play a string of festivals). Luckily, he’ll make his way stateside at some point, but those details won’t be revealed until 2018.

Backing Osbourne on his tour are Zakk Wylde (guitar), Blasko (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums), and Adam Wakeman (keys).

Black Sabbath took their final bow at the top of 2017 in their Birmingham, England hometown, documenting their last show in their rock doc The End of The End.
