After 50 years, Ozzy Osbourne has announced that he’s heading out on his final tour. Starting next year, the dates will stretch into 2020. He’s also said he will continue to perform one-off shows after the finale tour, so he’s not actually throwing in the towel just yet.

“People keep asking me when I’m retiring”, Osbourne said, announcing plans for the shows. “This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there”.

Exact dates for the big final world trek are yet to be announced, but it has been revealed that the shows will start in Mexico, before moving through South America, Europe and Russia.

This isn’t Osbourne’s first crack at a farewell tour. Earlier this year, Black Sabbath completed their last jaunt around the world, finishing with a show in their hometown of Birmingham.
