Heavy metal forefather Ozzy Osbourne has announced his farewell tour (the last of 14), set to run from 2018 to 2020 with Zakk Wylde on guitar, succeeding Black Sabbath’s farewell tour that ended back in February. Fret not, though, for Osbourne stated that “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”
The first set of tour dates have been revealed for May 2018, kicking off in Mexico before heading to South America, followed by a six week run in Russia and Europe throughout the months of June and July.
Along with Wylde, Blasko on bass, Tommy Clufetos on drums, and Adam Wakeman on keyboard will join Osbourne for this three-year trek.
As far as new music goes from the legendary rocker, if there were to be anything new, it’s a long way off, despite being about seven tracks in to a new record. Back in September, he told Rolling Stone, “I would like to do another record. But it’s wasting money. Nobody’s buying. You don’t have to sell that many records anymore to get a Number One. Depending how many records you’ve sold. You can have 30 or 40. Nobody buys them.”
With 11 solo records and 9 Black Sabbath ones, there’s plenty of Ozzy to go around.
