Ozzy Osbourne announces “farewell” tour to start in 2018, last through 2020

Mark WeissOzzy Osbourne will put a cap on his five-decade career as rock’s premiere metal madman by launching a farewell tour that will last into 2020.  But the Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer is still keeping his options open.

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

The tour kicks off May 5, 2018 in Mexico, and then heads to South America.  Europe comes next, followed by a North American concert tour whose details will not be revealed until next year.

Ozzy’s band for the trek will include Zakk Wylde, Blasko, Tommy Clufetos and Adam Wakeman.
