Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE earlier this week revealed details about his forthcoming “NO MORE TOURS 2,” a reference to his 1992 “No More Tears” track.
The announcement by the legendary musical icon about the North American dates–with his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards)–was made to international media in attendance at his Los Angeles home.
The North American dates kick off August 30 in Allentown, PA and conclude October 13 in Las Vegas, NV with a Thursday, October 11 stop at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. OZZY will be joined by Stone Sour for this leg of the tour. Tickets for these shows go on sale to the general public starting in February
Prior to the full North American run, OZZY will officially launch the “NO MORE TOURS 2” in Mexico in May, before heading to South America for solo shows in three countries. Next up, a six-week European leg of headlining solo dates and festival performances that’s set to begin Friday, June 1 in Moscow, Russia.
“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 OSBOURNE will celebrate more than five decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath which formed in 1968). 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.
At this moment there are no plans for an Australian leg of the tour.
