Ozzy Osbourne to retire

Ozzy Osbourne to retire

Ozzy Osbourne has added North American tour dates for 2018. This year also marks 20 years since Osbourne created his name-sake hard rock/metal touring festival Ozzfest, which has had a hugely successful run across North America, Europe, and Japan.

Tickets for the Pepsi Center concert go on sale Saturday, February 17 at 10 a.m.at AltitudeTickets.com and LiveNation.com for between $40 and $250.

"I'm not retiring from the music business; I'm just not doing world tours anymore. And now I have grandchildren and I want to spend some time with them", the former Black Sabbath frontman said.

"I've never seen my kids grow up".

Frasier star John Mahoney dies at 77
He was an early company member of Chicago's legendary Steppenwolf Theater before moving to off- and eventually on-Broadway. Nine years later, Mahoney won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actor In A Play for his work in " The House of Blue Leaves ".

He said: "Black Sabbath is a completely different thing". Osbourne was the vocalist of Black Sabbath, but his upcoming performances will exclusively be about him. When the tour is over, he hopes to produce a new album and will play gigs when the opportunity arises.

The announcement by the legendary musical icon about the North American dates - with his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde, Blasko, Tommy Clufetos and Adam Wakeman - was made to worldwide media in attendance at his Los Angeles home.

"I've been blessed with an wonderful life", Osbourne says in a statement. "I'm not saying I'm going to rush to Vegas to do it, but if it works out, I'd do it", Osbourne said. However, nothing has been finalized yet. "This will be my final world tour, but I can't say I won't do some shows here and there". "It's the greatest love affair I ever had, being in a rock band and playing for the people who come to the shows".
