Ozzy Osbourne Announces Final Two Year Spanning World Tour. Saturday 8th September 2018
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE today revealed details about his forthcoming "NO MORE TOURS 2," a reference to his 1992 "No More Tours" trek. The announcement by the legendary musical icon about the European dates extends the North American tour, announced earlier this year, with his long time collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards).
The 2019 European leg produced by Live Nation kicks off in Dublin on 30th January with dates scheduled throughout the UK, including a night at London's O2 Arena before continuing through Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and Italy before concluding in Barcelona on 3rd March; Ozzy will be joined by Judas Priest for select dates on the tour. Tickets for the U.K. shows go on sale to the general public 07 September at 9am at LiveNation.co.uk. br>
This summer saw OZZY go solo on the European festival circuit, with headline performances at Download UK, Paris and Madrid, Firenze Rocks, Copenhell, Grasspop Metal Meeting and Sweden Rock Festival.
"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."
On his upcoming farewell world tour, produced by Live Nation, OSBOURNE will celebrate more than five decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath which toured through Europe in 2017 on their farewell tour). This tour, expected to take OZZY around the world with dates into 2020, will mark the end of global touring for the legendary artist, though he will continue to perform select live shows in the future. Throughout his career, OZZY has sold more than 100 million records.

Of The Month - October 2016 - The Beards
The Beards - Sadly all good things must come to an end and this year see’s everyone’s favourite Australian Bearded rockers The Beards calling it a day, the band who formed back in 2005 have made a career of singing about Beards and in the ten years they have been together as a band they have toured constantly and released 4 studio albums titled ‘The Beards’, ‘Beards, Beards, Beards’, ‘Having A Beard Is The New Not Having A Beard’, ‘The Beards Album’ and also the most recent greatest hits ‘Ten Long Years, One Long Beard’ and every song on these albums is about beards.
Back at the start of the year the band announced that they were calling it a day and frontman Johann Beardraven had this to say “We feel like we've achieved what we set out to achieve through music, everybody now agrees that beards are great, so the time has come for us to rest on our laurels. But not before we go around one last time and say a heartfelt thankyou to everyone who's come out to see us over the years, and especially to everyone who's grown a beard, or adopted a pro-beard attitude.”
The band have spent the majority of the year touring across Australia saying a final farewell to their homebound fans and now the band are currently touring across mainland Europe before saying a final farewell to their UK fans in the middle of October and it is the perfect time to see the band on the live circuit as not only is it a farewell tour but the band will also be playing two jam-packed sets of bearded anthems from their impressive back catalogue, incorporating both the stripped-back acoustic sound that helped them gain radio play in Australia, and the infectious pop-rock that has won them a legion of fans worldwide.
The Beards are much-loved by audiences around the world for their refreshingly original concept, highly-interactive live shows and trademark sense of humour. Don't miss this hugely-entertaining Aussie phenomenon's victory lap of Europe this October.
