ozzyOzzy Osbourne’s ‘final’ tour to hit Jones Beach... “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,” says Osbourne.. Ozzy Osbourne is bringing his "No More Tours 2" show to Jones Beach Theater on Saturday, Sept. 8 - tix: http://OZZY.jonesbeach.com Stone Sour is the opening band. 

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Ozzy Osbourne is planning his final bow...The much-loved heavy rocker, who turned 69 in December, has announced a globetrotting farewell tour.. Osbourne will be joined this summer by guitarist Zakk Wylde, part of a band that includes Detroit-born drummer Tommy Clufetos. The announcement by the legendary musical icon about the North American dates — with his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (guitar), Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards) — was made to international media in attendance at his Los Angeles home. 

Even Ozzy Osbourne knows he has talked about retiring from touring plenty of times before.. That’s why he’s named what he’s calling his final tour, “No More Tours 2” — a nod to the fact that he had a “No More Tours” tour in 1992. This time, though, Osbourne says he really means it... “I’ve been blessed with an amazing life,” Osbourne said at a news conference Tuesday. “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.” . Osbourne plans to tackle material from his former band, heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath, and his solo career on the tour, which will feature guitarist Zakk Wylde, bassist Blasko, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.

STONE SOUR is touring in support of its sixth studio effort, "Hydrograd", which came out at the end of June and features the chart-topping rock radio hit "Song #3". The disc was recorded at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, California with producer Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX and STEEL PANTHER. The latest track issued from the effort is "Rose Red Violent Blue".

Half a century after Ozzy Osbourne launched his career with Black Sabbath and four decades since he went out on his own, the Prince of Bloody Darkness will embark on his final world tour. Ozzy Osbourne Opens Up About Marriage, Sobriety, Life Post–Black Sabbath.. The Prince of Darkness on his regrets, the state of the music industry and why retirement isn't in his future.. "Will it really have been 40 years that I've been solo?" Osbourne ponders aloud. "Yeah, I guess that's right. It's gone so quickly.".. Dubbed "No More Tours 2" – a cheeky throwback to his ill-fated retirement bid called "No More Tours" in the early Nineties – Osbourne will kick off the two-year victory lap this spring with dates in Mexico, South America and Europe. The jaunt's first United States leg, which will feature Stone Sour as the opening group, starts in Allentown, Pennsylvania in August and wraps in Las Vegas in October. While the trek has all the markings of a farewell tour, Osbourne says that it's not the end for his career. "I'm not retiring," he tells Rolling Stone on a call from his Los Angeles home. "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." 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. Throughout his career, Ozzy has sold more than 100 million records.
