After cancelling No More Tours II around this time last year and announcing that his touring days were essentially over, it sounds as though Ozzy Osbourne will play live again in the UK – his wife and manager Sharon says he’ll be doing “two more shows” before his official retirement from performing.
Onstage at her Cut The Crap show in London this past Sunday night (via Rolling Stone UK), Sharon reportedly revealed that her 75-year-old husband will be saying one last goodbye to fans in his hometown of Aston in Birmingham, most likely at Aston Villa’s ground Villa Park.
“He won’t tour again,” she said, “but we are planning on doing two more shows to say goodbye as he feels like, ‘I have never said goodbye to my fans and I want to say goodbye properly.’
“We will do it in Aston Villa where Ozzy is from,” Sharon continued. “His voice is still absolutely perfect. And all the time he has been off he still does his singing lessons so his voice is perfect. And he can joke, yeah. He has all these melodies in his head. Even if you don’t like his music you can’t not like Ozzy, he just draws you in.”
