Ozzy Osbourne Announces “Farewell World Tour”
To “celebrate five decades of performing”, Ozzy Osbourne has announced his “farewell world tour” on Monday.
“People keep asking me when I’m retiring”, Ozzy said in a press release. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”
The “farewell world tour” will travel across Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Finland, Sweden, UK, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Poland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, with North American dates to be revealed later next year with the tour going through 2020.
Ozzy Osbourne has been touring since 1968, so even though, “these shows will mark the final global tour for the rock icon,” don’t worry, it doesn’t mean the Prince of Darkness will stop touring or performing any time soon.
For these dates, Ozzy will be joined by longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards).
