The Prince of Darkness is set to retire.

Ozzy Osbourne has announced he will embark on one final world tour, and then he’s parking that tour bus for good as he retires from touring.

But he’s bowing out with a bang, saying the tour will be a ‘huge celebration.’

The 69-year-old musician will set off on a two-year tour of the globe entitled the No More Tours 2 tour – which is a reference to a tour of the same name which he conducted in 1992 – before he makes the decision to bow out of performing live.

In a press release, Ozzy said: ‘I’ve been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers. 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.’

According to The Wrap, the Prince of Darkness is set to be joined by longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde, Blasko, Tommy Clufetos and Adam Wakeman during the tour.

No More Tours 2 is set to kick off with a pair of festival shows in Florida – Jacksonville’s Welcome to Rockville and Fort Lauderdale’s FortRock on April 27 and 29 respectively – before the singer jets off across Central and South America, and Europe before heading back to the US in August.

Tickets for the shows are expected to go on sale on Saturday 17 February.

Ozzy’s decision to step back from touring comes less than a month after fellow star Sir Elton John made a similar announcement.

Elton, 70, announced in January that he would embark on a three-year ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ world tour to mark his retirement, which will see him play over 300 shows across the globe, concluding in 2021.
