Ozzy Osbourne On His Final World Tour: “I’m Not Retiring”

Ozzy Osbourne says he will still continue to play one-off dates in the years to come. Comments Ozzy of that:

“I’m not retiring. It’s ‘No More Tours,’ so I’m just not doing world tours anymore. I’m still going to be doing gigs, but I’m not going on tour for six months at a time anymore. I’d like to spend some time at home.”

He continues:

“I’ve experienced fantastic things; it’s been an incredible journey. I just need to slow it down a little. I enjoy being a grandfather, I don’t want to go through another generation of Osbournes without seeing them grow up.”

“Our spy on the scene overheard a couple of crew members talking about the Black Sabbath frontman outside the theater where Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones were working.
