Ozzy Osbourne fans who said farewell to Black Sabbath earlier this year, prepare for one last farewell as the rock and roll legend has announced that he will be calling it quits in 2020. The Black Sabbath frontman will embark on his “farewell tour” in 2018, taking him around the globe one last time, with his world tour wrapping up in 2020.

Ozzy said in a statement, “People keep asking me when I’m retiring. This will be my final world tour, but I can’t say I won’t do some shows here and there.”

Osbourne will be joined by longtime friend and bandmates, guitarist Zakk Wylde, bassist Rob “Blasko” Nicholson, drummer Tommy Clufetos, and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.

The tour kicks off next May with dates in Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Brazil before heading to Europe in June. Details about the North American leg of the tour are expected to be announced in early 2018.
