Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Ozzy Osbourne announced on Feb. 6 details of his final solo tour, dubbed “No More Tours 2,” a reference to his 1992 “No More Tours” trek. The announcement by the classic rock legend about the North American dates, which he’ll do with his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (guitar), Blasko (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards), was made at a press conference at his Los Angeles home.

Last Nov. 6, Osbourne revealed that the upcoming tour would be his last.

The news comes on the heels of Black Sabbath’s lengthy final tour, The End, in 2016-17 and follows 2018 news about farewells from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elton John and Paul Simon. (Neil Diamond also abruptly announced his own end to touring when he revealed he was suffering from Parkinson’s.)

The initial North American dates, produced by Live Nation, begin Aug. 30 and conclude Oct. 13. Stone Sour will be the opening act for this leg. Tickets for these shows go on sale to the general public starting Saturday, Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. local time here. Tickets are also available here. (See itinerary below.)

Prior to the full North American run, Osbourne 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 June 1 in Moscow, Russia.

“I’ve been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers,” said Osbourne. “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.”

The Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter 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 go around the world with dates into 2020, will mark the end of global touring for the artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows in the future. Osbourne has sold more than 100 million records.
