Ozzy Osbourne to play 2 farewell shows to 'say goodbye' to fans but he 'wont tour again'
Ozzy Osbourne's wife Sharon Osbourne has confirmed the rocker won't tour again, but admitted he is planning to play two more shows to "say goodbye" to his fans, and they are expected to be at Villa Park, Birmingham.
Ozzy Osbourne will play two more shows to "say goodbye" to his fans.
The 75-year-old rocker's wife Sharon Osbourne has confirmed the Black Sabbath frontman won’t tour again, but he is keen to put on a couple of farewell performances to wave goodbye to his die-hard supporters.
Speaking at her live show at London's The Fortune Theatre on Sunday night (21.01.24), Sharon - who has children Aimee, 40, Kelly, 39, and 38-year-old Jack with Ozzy - said: "He won’t tour again but we are planning on doing two more shows to say goodbye as he feels like, 'I have never said goodbye to my fans and I want to say goodbye.'
"His voice is still absolutely perfect. And all the time he has been off he still does his singing lessons. Even if you don’t like his music, you can’t not like Ozzy."
Sharon also dropped a huge hint that Ozzy - who has been unable to perform live in recent months due to a string of health issues, including Parkinson's disease and problems with his spine - will play the two gigs in Aston, Birmingham, at Villa Park, the home of Premier League giants Aston Villa.
She said: "We will do it in Aston Villa where Ozzy is from."
In December, Ozzy admitted he was determined to perform again if he was able to.
He told Rolling Stone magazine: "I’m taking it one day at a time, and if I can perform again, I will.
"But it’s been like saying farewell to the best relationship of my life. At the start of my illness, when I stopped touring, I was really [annoyed] with myself, the doctors, and the world.
"But as time has gone on, I’ve just gone, ‘Well, maybe I’ve just got to accept that fact.’ "
