After spending most of the last 50 years on the road with Black Sabbath and as a solo artist, Ozzy Osbourne will embark on a final journey around the globe in the coming months. No More Tours 2 (the name refers to his supposed first farewell tour, which took place in 1992 and lasted only three years) begins on April 27 in Florida, United States.
While preparing for the tour, Osbourne gave an interview to Rolling Stone and talked about the strangest thing that happened to him over the last 40 years of shows.
Read the singer statement below:
“There was one night when I watched a group of people who did not move in the audience. When I see this, I focus only on these people, and if they continue to do nothing, I start throwing buckets of water into them. And that’s what I did. But then they told me that they did not move because they were deaf. And I felt like an idiot [laughs]. Why would a deaf person go to a rock show? I could not understand that. But then I heard they could feel the rhythm of the song. I found it very interesting.”
In another recent statement, the singer explained that the tour is not synonymous with retirement. “The name is ‘No More Tours’, so it just means that I’m not going to go on world tours anymore. I’ll still do shows, but not for six more months. I want to spend more time at home. ”
