Don't be 'Paranoid' — Ozzy Osbourne isn't retiring, but he did just announce a farewell tour with a stop at DTE



SHARONNNNNNN! The prince of darkness is saying good-bye AY AY AY AY AY — again.

Yesterday, Osbourne announced his final farewell tour, "No More Tours 2," a throwback to his "No More Tours" psych-out in the '90s. The tour will carry the blood-hungry, geriatric rocker into 2020, which will be the official (well, for now) end of Osbourne's global touring. After kicking things off in Florida in April for a few select dates, the batman will jaunt through South America before a two-month run in Europe, then return to the states in the fall. But don't worry — he's stopping by DTE Energy Music Theatre on Sept. 19 for one final ride on ye' olde "Crazy Train."

"I'm not retiring," Osbourne told Rolling Stone, "It's 'No More Tours,' so I'm just not doing world tours anymore. I'm still going to be doing gigs, but I'm not going on tour for six months at a time anymore. I'd like to spend some time at home."

Tickets go on-sale to the general public Saturday, Feb. 17 at 10 a.m., via For a full list of tour dates and updates visit here.
