Ozzy Osbourne Announces Farewell World Tour
Ozzy Osbourne has announced the first shows of an extensive world that will stretch into 2020.
Osbourne—in a press release—confirmed that the tour will be his final world tour, but would not rule out playing select concerts after the tour’s conclusion.
“People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” Osbourne said. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”
Osbourne will kick off his tour in 2018 with a show in Mexico, before heading to South America for solo shows in three countries. Osbourne will then embark on a six-week European leg of headlining solo dates and festival performances that’s set to launch on June 1, 2018 in Moscow, Russia.
Osbourne will subsequently headline a North American tour, the details of which will be revealed in 2018.
For the tour, Osbourne will be joined by Zakk Wylde on guitar, Rob “Blasko” Nicholson on bass, Tommy Clufetos on drums and Adam Wakeman on keyboards.
