Ozzy Osbourne has announced additional No More Tours 2 North American tour dates for 2019. For these shows, Osbourne will be backed by his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (guitar), Rob “Blasko” Nicholson (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards), with Megadeth supporting for the entire North American run.
Tickets for the 2019 North American No More Tours 2 shows go on sale to the general public starting Friday, 9 November via the Live Nation Website.
The No More Tours 2 tour launched in May 2018 in Santiago, Chile for solo shows in three countries followed by a six-week European leg of headlining solo dates and festival performances. A North American tour followed kicking off August 30 in Allentown, Pennsylvania, with the final four shows of that leg of the tour postponed for Ozzy to recover from an infection. Those four shows — Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA, North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas— will now conclude the 2019 dates.
Tickets for these rescheduled dates are on sale now. The trek will also include a newly announced 11 June stop at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Prior to his 2019 dates, Ozzy will headline a special New Year’s Eve Ozzfest spectacular at the Forum in Los Angeles.
On his upcoming farewell world tour, Osbourne will celebrate more than five decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath who formed in 1968). 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.
Although Osbourne’s current solo tour is billed as No More Tours 2 and has been advertised as his last major world trek, he insisted that he’s not going away entirely, saying: “What I’m stopping is doing what I’m doing now — going around the world all the time. I wish people would understand I’m not retiring. Is it my bad English accent? It’s called the ‘No More Tours’ tour. It doesn’t say ‘No more tours ever.'”
This will mark the first time Megadeth will join Osbourne for a full tour, although they have performed together previously at Ozzfest and other festivals around the world.
