Ozzy Osbourne announces farewell world tour starting in 2018

After five decades as singer of Black Sabbath and solo career, Ozzy Osbourne announced his farewell world tour. On these concerts, the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter will be around the world with dates into 2020 and will mark the end of global touring for the legendary artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows.

Ozzy said:

“People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” Ozzy says. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”

Osbourne’s farewell tour will kick off in May 2018 with shows in Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. Those will be followed by a couple of early June dates in Russia before Osbourne embarks on on a month-long European leg, including appearances at most of the summer festivals. The beloved rock icon will subsequently headline a North American concert tour produced by Live Nation, details of which will be revealed in 2018.

Sharon Osbourne told Rolling Stone that her husband would carry on as a solo artist after Black Sabbath’s farewell tour came to an end this past February. “We’ll continue until Ozzy finishes, and Ozzy won’t be long behind them when he calls it a day,” she said.

“It’s not going to be within the next year, but it’s coming up,” she said. “I don’t want Ozzy singing ‘Crazy Train’ at 75. I think it’s best you go out before you hit that 70 and go out on top.”
