Ozzy Osbourne To Continue Tour After Black Sabbath Ends

Ozzy Osbourne has dismissed his manager wife Sharon’s retirement talk, insisting he plans to rock on for some time.

Sharon Osbourne recently hinted her husband would step away from the spotlight before he hits 70 in three years, but Ozzy is determined to keep going and he’s urging fans not to write him off just because his band Black Sabbath are calling it a day, revealing he’s disappointed his bandmates Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi didn’t want to continue after their current farewell tour, which will end with a show in the rockers’ native Birmingham, England in February.

He tells Billboard.com, “Tony wants to do 80 shows and we’re doing 80 shows. It’s good enough, but I wouldn’t mind extending the tour for another few gigs. There’s a lot of people who won’t get to see us, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

He dismissed Sharon’s retirement chatter, adding, “It’s not me that wants to retire, it’s Black Sabbath. I’ll be continuing my own musical thing. My wife is good at telling me partial information, but I know I’m not hanging my boots up for a while.

“Being Ozzy Osbourne solo again is not a job. It’s a passion. It’s a love. It’s the biggest, greatest love affair of my life.”

Sharon, who still oversees her husband’s career despite their recent marriage troubles, recently suggested Ozzy’s retirement is imminent, stating, “It’s not going to be within the next year, but it’s coming up. I don’t want Ozzy singing Crazy Train at 75. I think it’s best you go out before you hit that 70 and go out on top.”
