Black Sabbath are nearing the end of their touring career, which will wrap up in February with two performances in their Birmingham, UK hometown at the Genting Arena.
In a new interview with Houston Press, frontman Ozzy Osbourne says he longs for the simple comforts of home, but his does not seem destined to be a private life, even in rock-star retirement after the tour’s end.
“[I’m looking forward to] my bed; my dog, Rocky; and of course, my family,” Ozzy says. “I will have a few weeks to rest and then there are talks about filming a second season of Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour with my son, Jack.”

Black Sabbath’s final US shows (November 10th at Toyota Center in Houston, TX and November 12th at AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX) wrap up nearly a year of headlining performances and the band’s special one-off gig at this year’s Ozzfest (Saturday, September 24th at the Ozzfest Meets Knotfest double-header music and lifestyle weekend).
Following the US shows, the greatest metal band of all time will head to Mexico and then South America where they’ll wrap up their 2016 dates before performing the last shows of their career, back where it all started in England. The last leg of The End tour will start with a January 17th show in Cologne, Germany before the band returns to the UK. Those shows launch January 20th, 2017 at the 3 Arena in Dublin before hitting arenas in Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds and London (with two nights at The O2), culminating with two performances in Birmingham.
When this tour concludes, it will truly be The End, The End of one of most legendary bands in rock ‘n roll history… Black Sabbath.
