Ozzy Osbourne to Embark on Farewell Tour in 2018
No need to mourn the loss of Ozzy’s touring machine just yet — you’ll have the next three years to catch metal’s Prince of Darkness live in concert. The first batch of cities (with some venues) have been revealed for May 2018 with a run of South American shows before hitting Russia and Europe in June and July.
"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."
This announcement comes just months after Black Sabbath completed their "The End" tour, capping off a legendary career with packed arena gigs.
In addition to Wylde on guitar, Ozzy will be surrounded by Blasko on bass, Tommy Clufetos on drums and Adam Wakeman on keys.
Details on the North American leg of Ozzy Osbourne’s farewell tour will be revealed in 2018, so stay tuned for that news once it breaks.
