Ozzy Osbourne only has a few more shows left in him, according to his wife, and manager, Sharon Osbourne.

The former The Talk co-host, 71, revealed Ozzy’s music plans in an interview with Rolling Stone UK during her Cut the Crap tour stop in London on Sunday.

“He won’t tour again, but we are planning on doing two more shows to say goodbye as he feels like, ‘I have never said goodbye to my fans and I want to say goodbye properly,’ ” she explained.

“We will do it in Aston Villa where Ozzy is from. His voice is still absolutely perfect,” she went on. “And all the time he has been off, he still does his singing lessons so his voice is perfect. And he can joke.”

“He has all these melodies in his head. Even if you don’t like his music, you can’t not like Ozzy, he just draws you in.”

Last year, the Black Sabbath frontman told the publication that he was “f – – king pissed off” that he “never got the chance to say goodbye or thank you” to his fans amid his multiple health woes.

“For whatever reason, that’s my goal to work to. To do those shows. If it’s at Ozzfest or somewhere, or even a f – – king gig at the Roundhouse. If I can’t continue doing shows on a regular basis, I just want to be well enough to do one show where I can say, ‘Hi guys, thanks so much for my life,’ ” he said for its December-January 2024 cover story.

He continued, “That’s what I’m working towards, and if I drop down dead at the end of it, I’ll die a happy man.”

  1. Sadly, I don’t think those two shows will ever happen. It’s been a great career, no shame if it ends with no more shows. Enjoy your retirement, Ozzy, and rekindle those old friendships, particularly those that your wife ruined for you…

  2. It sucks all the people I grew up with are slowly fading away. I hope he can do his last two shows, but it’s been a hell of a ride for him I don’t see the need. Still for his sake, if that’s what he really wants and it’s not some last ditch effort for some quick cash by his wife, then go for it.

  3. I love Ozz but he owes us nothing. Saw him in 2018 in Cleveland (I think it was 2018) & his voice was not good at all. Stay home and enjoy your retirement. Most of us have all of Blsck Sabbath and solo cd’s, vinyl and concert vids.

  4. This is elder abuse. I feel for John Osbourne. About time he gets his Knighthood.

    Don’t Blame Ozzy!! Best vhs tape I ever purchased in the early 90’s along with all of Mike Judge’s Beaver & Buttnugget .
