Ozzy Osbourne: "In 2016 we'll do the final Black Sabbath tour"


Ozzy Osbourne has confirmed that Black Sabbath will make the last tour in 2016. Below you can read some excerpts.


"The plan is that next year we'll do the final Black Sabbath tour and then it's over. We all live in different countries and some of them want to work and some of them don't want to, I believe. But we are going to do another tour together."

"I'm still gonna continue my solo career. I'm doing these few solo gigs down here in South America now. Then at the beginning of next year, I'm going out with Sabbath. The Sabbath thing is folding up after the next tour, but I'm gonna continue my solo career."

"With Black Sabbath, I'm part of a band that I grew up with, so we all know each other's temperaments... You know where to tread and where not to tread. It's a completely different style of music anyway to my solo material, it's very slow and heavy. And Tony Iommi, he's the master of metal riffs; you can't beat him."

He continued: "It took Black Sabbath 45 years to get our first No. 1 album. And Tony, I was amazed at what he was coming up with. Considering that he was fighting cancer during the making of the album. He's doing great now. I text him now and again. He sounds fine."
