Just months after playing his final concert with Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne has announced his own Farewell World Tour that’s slated to last into 2020. The metal pioneer may be finishing up his time on the road, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be done with music altogether.
“People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” he says. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”
Osbourne will be joined by four longtime collaborators: Zakk Wylde on guitar, Tommy Clufetos on drums, Adam Wakeman on keyboards, and Rob “Blasko” Nicholson on bass. The bassist, who also worked with Rob Zombie and Danzig, replaced Robert Trujillo as Osbourne’s bassist back in 2003. He was featured on the singer’s Black Rain and Scream albums.
The tour will start in Mexico before heading to South America and Europe. The North American leg of the tour will be revealed in 2018.
