After ringing in the New Year at a one-off Ozzfest in Los Angeles, Ozzy Osbourne will be spending much of 2019 in North America on a new leg of his ongoing No More Tours 2 Tour. Megadeth will serve as openers for the dates, which begin May 29th in Atlanta and will wrap on July 29th at the Hollywood Bowl. The latter is one of four makeup dates from the last leg of the tour, which Osbourne postponed due to a staph infection. Osbourne will spend the rest of the year touring Europe, Australia and Japan.

When Osbourne kicked off the first North American leg of the No More Tours 2 Tour earlier this year, Rolling Stone wrote that the singer was still a “consummate showman” and that he had the audience rapt. “Everyone seemed swept up with the spectacle,” the review said. “For as ‘crazy’ as Ozzy went, the crowd caught up with him by the end of the night. During the night’s final song, Black Sabbath’s anthem ‘Paranoid,’ red streamers shot from the stage, and several fans dived to grab them off the floor, so they could wear them out of the arena like a trophies.”

Tickets for the new leg of the tour go on sale November 9th via Live Nation. Pre-sales begin a few days earlier.

Osbourne had to postpone four North American dates after contracting potentially deadly staph infections on his thumb. “I didn’t feel sick, so I was cracking jokes,” Osbourne told Rolling Stone. “The doctor said, ‘I don’t know if you realize, Mr. Osbourne, this is a very serious problem you have.'” He’s since been recovering and has planned the Ozzfest to celebrate.

In an in-depth feature with Rolling Stone, Osbourne said that his fans should not interpret the “No More Tours” moniker as a farewell tour. This is simply his final full world tour. He still plans on playing short runs of dates in the future. “I’m no good at anything else,” he said. “I literally can’t do anything else.”
