Ozzy Osbourne has today revealed details about his forthcoming “NO MORE TOURS 2,” a reference to his 1992 “No More Tours” trek.
The announcement by the legendary musical icon about the European dates extends the North American tour, announced earlier this year, with his long time collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards).
The 2019 European leg produced by Live Nation kicks off in Dublin on 30th January with dates scheduled throughout the UK, including a night at Manchester Arena before continuing through Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and Italy before concluding in Barcelona on 3rd March; Ozzy will be joined by Judas Priest for select dates on the tour. Tickets for the U.K. shows go on sale to the general public 07 September at 9am at LiveNation.co.uk.
This summer saw Ozzy go solo on the European festival circuit, with headline performances at Download UK, Paris and Madrid, Firenze Rocks, Copenhell, Grasspop Metal Meeting and Sweden Rock Festival.
“I’ve been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers,” Osbourne says. “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.”
On his upcoming farewell world tour, produced by Live Nation, Osbourne will celebrate more than five decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath which toured through Europe in 2017 on their farewell tour).
This tour, expected to take Ozzy around the world with dates into 2020, will mark the end of global touring for the legendary artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows in the future. Throughout his career, Ozzy has sold more than 100 million records.
