OZZY OSBOURNE ANNOUNCES "NO MORE TOURS 2" NEW ZEALAND TOUR

SHOWS ARE PART OF THE ROCK ICON'S FINAL GLOBAL TOUR AND WILL CELEBRATE FIVE DECADES OF PERFORMING WITH TWO-YEAR WORLD TOUR

 

WITH SPECIAL GUEST JUDAS PRIEST

TICKETS GO ON SALE 1PM THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2

AUCKLAND, NZ (Sep 20, 2018) – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer, songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE currently in the midst of his “NO MORE TOURS 2” has today confirmed he will perform two final New Zealand shows in March 2019. The New Zealand shows will follow his final Australian appearance at the Download Festival.

On his farewell world tour, Osbourne will celebrate more than five decades as a performer (both as a solo artist and as lead singer of Black Sabbath which formed in 1968). These shows with his longtime collaborators Zakk Wylde (Guitar), Blasko (Bass), Tommy Clufetos (Drums) and Adam Wakeman (Keyboards) follow headlining solo dates and festival performances in North America, Mexico, South America and Europe.

Ozzy will be joined by special guest JUDAS PRIEST.

There are few heavy metal bands that have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest have during their 40-year career. Formed in the early '70s in Birmingham, England, Priest were one of the first metal bands to exclusively wear leather and studs – a look that began during this era and would eventually be embraced by metal heads throughout the world.

Judas Priest went on to change the face of heavy metal. A 2010 Grammy Award win for 'Best Metal Performance, a 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination, the latest album 'Firepower' released in March 2018 has become the highest ­charting album of their career plus scorching their way round the world in sell out shows on the Firepower tour has cemented the presence and influence of Judas Priest at an all-time high!
