Not in Hall of Fame







After a half decade of trying to get his farewell tour finished, plagued by many obstacles, Ozzy Osborne has announced he has finished touring. First announced in Sep, 2017, The No More Tours II had it's last full concert Dec. 31, 2018 at Ozzfest, The Forum, Inglewood, CA, USA. After some European dates and a swing through the United States in 2018, a major European leg of the tour from 2019 had to be postponed due to Ozzy's illness. Then, in 2020, the North American Tour had to be postponed as Ozzy needed medical treatment. Then the COVID-19 pandemic came along, with all touring grinding to a halt. Finally, in 2023, the postponed European dates from 2020 were set to go. On Feb 1, it was announced that Ozzy had not recovered from his medical treatment and had to retire from touring permanently. The trouble dated back to a spinal injury from a bike injury. He left open the possibility of occasional single shows. Said Ozzy, "Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way".
