Ozzy Osbourne Look Up

Ozzy Osbourne announced his final world tour today. Osbourne plans to retire from touring after this, but not from performing. “People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” Osbourne says in a press statement. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”

Black Sabbath finished up a string of dates on their final tour this year, but Ozzy plans on finishing out his last solo tour starting in 2018 and winding down in 2020. Read the Get Some coverage of Black Sabbath’s final show in Los Angeles here.

In an interview with Rolling Stone Ozzy said, “People around my age go, ‘I’m 65 now. I’m retired.’ Then they fucking die. My father got a bit of cash from the job he had, did the garden and died. And I’m going, ‘That’s a bit of an anticlimax after working so many years in a factory.’ I ain’t retiring. People still want to see me, so what’s there to retire from?”

For these dates, Ozzy Osbourne will be joined by longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards).
