Ozzy Osbourne Seems To Be Retiring… Again

Reported on by Variety, it seems that Ozzy Osbourne has announced a world tour that will signify a slow down for the singer. The world tour is expected to run into 2020 but, when asked about if he was retiring or not, Osbourne had this to say, “People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” he said in a press release. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”

The initial dates of the tour cover Mexico, South America and Europe, with Live Nation-produced North American dates to be revealed next year. The tour will have Osbourne playing music from all five decades of his career. The dates known so far can be seen below.

For these dates, Osbourne will be joined by longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (guitar), Blasko (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards). Also, I’d expect that Osbourne will record new material. Just because there’s going to be a slow down on touring dozen’t mean a full stop all together. As we know more, expect more information.
