Ozzy Osbourne to Embark on Farewell Tour to Celebrate Five Decades of Performing; Ending in 2020

Ozzy Osbourne has been doing his thing as a venerable rock icon for five decades, whether with Black Sabbath or as a solo act — but at 68 years of age, he’s finally ready to settle down.

On Monday, the Prince of Darkness announced a farewell global tour that will begin in May 2018 and wrap up in 2010 — giving fans the world over a two-year span with which to catch him in concert one last time.

After the tour, Ozzy will continue to perform “select live shows,” though this will be the final all-out tour of his vaunted career.

“People keep asking me when I’m retiring,” OZZY says.  “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”
