“No More Tours 2” Ozzy Osbourne Announces Final Tour

Ozzy No More Tours PR

After touring for our 50 years and performing over 2500 shows, it’s no wonder Ozzy Osbourne wants to take a break.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Ozzy Osbourne announces his final world tour entitled “No More Tours 2: Celebrating 5 Decades of The Prince of Darkness… Live” kicks off August 30 and runs through October 11. Stone Sour will be joining OZZY for the first stint of the tour, with the remainder taking him around the world and into 2020. For his farewell tour, Ozzy Osbourne will bring long-time friend and collaborator Zakk Wylde on guitar, Blasko on bass, Tommy Clufetos on drums, and Adam Wakeman on keyboards. Osbourne wanted to bring Wylde on this final tour with him, because he loves working with the musician, “He’s nuts. He’s just insane. He plays guitar like a demon. There ain’t no two Zakk Wylde’s, thank God. It’s like splitting the atom… He’s like family.”

When asked if he’ll miss touring, he says, “It’s the greatest love affair I’ve had in my life… but I miss my family.” After touring more than 5 decades and playing over 2500 shows, it’s time for The Prince of Darkness to take his well-deserved rest. Ozzy Osbourne said about his “No More Tours 2” run, “I’m not retiring from the music business… I’ll still be doing gigs” including appearances in Vegas and the continuation of Ozzfest. He says of his greatest nights on tour, “There’s nothing in the world, sex, drugs, or anything, that comes anywhere close to when you’re doing a great show.”

However, don’t get your hopes up for a “No More Tours 3,” as Osbourne says the only reason he wanted to do a comeback farewell tour is he felt the need to get back onstage after being previously misdiagnosed with MS. Though the ordeal was “terrifying”, Osbourne later found out it was a Parkinson Tremor, a rare hereditary disease. He elaborates, “My biggest fear is dying in a hotel room. I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t smoke tobacco anymore, but you know, people just die. I’ve just got this fear of dying in a hotel room in… Bumfuck, Idaho or something.”
