Ozzy Osbourne announces UK and European tour with Judas Priest

Ozzy Osbourne has announced dates for an early 2019 tour of the UK and Europe as part of his “No More Tours 2” farewell trek.

Joined by Judas Priest, the five-week run will open in Dublin on January 30 before hitting six UK cities – including Ozzy’s hometown of Birmingham, where Black Sabbath was formed – and then on to continental Europe.

"I've been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers,” says Ozzy. “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."

Tickets for the newly-announced shows will go on sale Friday, September 7 via the usual outlets.

Osbourne’s three-year “No More Tours 2” trek – which celebrates five decades of music since the 1970 release of Black Sabbath’s self-titled debut album – will mark the end of global touring for the legendary rocker by the time it wraps up in 2020.

Ozzy is joined by a lineup that includes guitarist Zakk Wylde, bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.

The rocker is currently playing shows in North America.
