Ozzy has announced he’s retiring from the road after 50 years of touring, and his next tour, “No More Tours 2,” will be his last.
The tour’s name is a nod to his 1990s tour, “No More Tours,” but he promises this time it’s for real.
The first series of dates have been announced for his extensive three-year farewell tour including North American and European legs as well as festival appearances. A six-week European trek will begin in Moscow, Russia on June 1 ahead of a full North American tour with Stone Sour that kicks off at the end of August.
He will be joined for the tour by longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde on guitar, bassist Rob “Blasko” Nicholson, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.
Ozzy said: “I’ve been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers. I’m looking at this final tour as being a huge celebration for my fans and anyone who has enjoyed my music over the past five decades.”
