Ozzy Osbourne announces 2018 North American leg of his No More Tours 2 farewell trek

Courtesy of MSO PROzzy Osbourne has announced a 2018 North American leg of his No More Tours 2 trek, a two-year outing that the Metal Madman says will be his final world tour.

The trek gets underway with an August 30 show in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and is mapped out through an October 13 concert in Las Vegas.

Stone Sour will serve as Ozzy's opening act for the tour. Osbourne's backing band will feature Zakk Wylde on lead guitar, bassist Blasko, keyboardist Adam Wakeman and drummer Tommy Clufetos, who also joined Ozzy on Black Sabbath's farewell trek, The End.

Tickets for the North American shows go on sale to the general public on Saturday, February 17, at 10 a.m. local time at and via the Live Nation app. Pre-sale tickets will be available to Citi card members starting Wednesday, February 14, at 10 a.m. local time through the company's Private Pass program.

"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."

Following a pair of U.S. festival appearances in late April, the No More Tours 2 trek will officially kick off with a Latin American leg running from a May 5 appearance at Mexico's Heaven and Hell Festival through a May 20 concert in Rio de Janeiro.

Ozzy then will play a series of European dates mapped out from a June 1 show in Moscow through a July 5 gig in Barcelona, Spain, followed by a July 7 performance in Tel Aviv, Israel.
