Heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne will be headlining festivals across Europe next year in what is, according to the organisers of Graspop Metal Meeting, his "farewell" world tour. Although this is being touted as his final world tour, Osbourne says he may still perform shows "here and there" and it is expected that he will still be releasing another album. An official statement or list of tour dates has yet to be announced by Osbourne's camp, but he has been confirmed to headline the Graspop Metal Meeting festival in Belgium, Denmark's, Copenhell event and both the British and Spanish editions of the Download festival.

Download Festival's promoter, Andy Copping said: "We’re unbelievably excited to have Ozzy as one of the headliners next year. Already hailing from the Midlands, Ozzy Osbourne is no stranger to Download, and after Black Sabbath closed the festival in 2016, how could I not ask The Prince of Darkness to come back all on his own? The Download family are without a shadow of a doubt, in for a treat."

More on this story will be revealed as soon as information becomes available.

This might or might not be Ozzy's farewell tour. I believed it was true back in 1992 when I saw the No More Tours tour.

This one is for real. He's getting too damned old to tour the world and act like a rock star.

I've gotta agree with Blindgreed. He is not a young man. Not to mention the damage that he's done to his body over the years. He can't have that much more fuel left in the tank.

^ labiaplasty can only do so much for an ugly cvnt.

I saw Ozzy with Sabbath in San Antonio last year and his vocal range is limited as is his physical range. He put on a good show considering, but still.. The man turns 69 next month. He might be able to pull off a final world tour with select cities and a few days of rest in between.
He might be trying to make it to 70 like Lemmy did.
