Ozzy Osbourne says he is not retiring and will still be playing gigs

Ozzy Osbourne announced with “final tour” called “No More Tours 2”, since he did the first one with the same name in 1992.


And again, he says that it doesn’t mean he is retiring.

Read what he said:

“I’m not retiring,” he tells Rolling Stone in a new interview. “It’s ‘No More Tours’, so I’m just not doing world tours anymore. I’m still going to be doing gigs, but I’m not going on tour for six months at a time anymore. I’d like to spend some time at home.”

Ozzy spend the last years touring with Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler on Black Sabbath reunion and “The End” tours.

“Slow it down a little” and be there for his family. I enjoy being a grandfather. I don’t want to go through another generation of Osbournes without seeing them grow up.”

After the tour ends, the singer said he will maybe do a new album. He tells Rolling Stone that he has “eight or nine good song ideas” for the follow-up to 2010’s “Scream”, including “Mr. Armageddon” and “Crack Cocaine”.” He will also play sporadic one-off shows but will not stay on the road for months at a time.

Zakk Wylde says that following Ozzy in drunkenness led him to alcoholism

“It’s what I do. It’s my job. And when I say, ‘It’s my job,’ I mean it’s a passion for me. It’s the greatest love affair I ever had, being in a rock band and playing for the people who come to the shows.”

Last year, Ozzy reunited with guitarist Zakk Wylde, who played on studio albums such as “No Rest For The Wicked”, “No More Tears” and “Ozzmosis” and who has toured on and off with Ozzy for nearly thirty years.
