The band join the festival, taking place at London's Gunnersbury Park in July.
Ozzy Osbourne returns to the UK in February 2019 for his final global tour. Celebrating five decades of performing, the rock icon, along with special guests Judas Priest, has announced six UK dates as part of a two-year world tour.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter Ozzy Osbourne will bring his long time collaborators Zakk Wylde (guitar), Blasko (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards) on the forthcoming NO MORE TOURS 2, a nostalgic reference to his 1992 No More Tours trek.
The legendary musical icon and reality tv personality will kick off his 2019 jaunt in Dublin on 30 January, before heading to arenas in Nottingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham and London throughout February.
This past summer saw Ozzy go solo on the European festival circuit, with headline performances at Download UK, Paris and Madrid, Firenze Rocks, Copenhell, Grasspop Metal Meeting and Sweden Rock Festival.
“I’ve been extremely blessed to have had two successful music careers,” says Ozzy. “I’m looking at this final tour as being a huge celebration for my fans and anyone who has enjoyed my music over the past five decades.”
On his upcoming farewell world tour, the rocker will celebrate his half a century as an artist – both as a solo musician and as the lead singer of legendary rock band Black Sabbath, who toured through Europe on their own farewell tour back in 2017.
Black Sabbath formed in Birmingham in 1968. Lead singer Ozzy was joined by guitarist and primary songwriter Tony Iommi, bassist and lyricist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward. Ozzy left Sabbath in 1979, launching a successful solo career before rejoining the band later. Though there were many line-up changes over the decades, Black Sabbath’s The End tour featured original members Osbourne, Iommi and Butler.
