Here’s the full rundown of dates that will be performed by the legendary Ozzy Osbourne as he maps out where his own “No More Tours 2” Farewell Tour will be stopping. Check out the full press release that was received only a little while ago.

The Press Release:
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE earlier today (February 6) revealed details about his forthcoming “NO MORE TOURS 2,” a reference to his 1992 “No More Tours” trek. The announcement by the legendary musical icon about the North American dates–with his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards)—was made to international media in attendance at his Los Angeles home.

The initial North American dates produced by Live Nation kick off August 30 in Allentown, PA and conclude October 13 in Las Vegas, NV with a Thursday, October 11 stop at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles; OZZY will be joined by Stone Sour for this leg of the tour. Tickets for these shows go on sale to the general public starting Saturday, February 17 at 10:00 AM (local time) at LiveNation.com and through the Live Nation app. Citi® is the official presale credit card of the tour. As such, Citi® cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning Wednesday, February 14 at 10:00 AM (local time) until Friday, February 16 at 10:00 PM (local time) through Citi’s Private Pass® program.

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

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

On his upcoming farewell world tour, produced by Live Nation, OSBOURNE 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 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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: What a few weeks of “Farewell Tour” announcements its been. In 2017 we said “Goodnight and Good Luck” to the legendary Black Sabbath and Finland’s HIM as they completed their own “Farewell Tours”. 2018 showed us that some other rock legends have decided that touring was just too much as Slayer, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elton John and now Ozzy Osbourne prepare to give us one more round of shows. Speaking frankly, Ozzy Osbourne has given his worldwide fans more than they can repay him for on two fronts with Sabbath and as a solo artist. You’re not going to want to miss these shows if you can see more than one because this time, the last show will be the last one that Ozzy plans on doing. I’m sure we shall find a comprehensive video and album being recorded from the final show ever but we still have several months before anything like that will be on the agenda. What do you fans think about this one? Can you handle the idea of Ozzy retiring from the Heavy Metal business? Chime in down below in the comments.
