On the latest interview he gave to the Rolling Stone, Ozzy Osbourne has recalled the farewell tour of Black Sabbath, which was held between 20 January 2016 and 4 February 2017.
Explaining that he still regrets not doing the last farewell show in Birmingham with the band’s drummer Bill Ward, Ozzy shut the rumors fueled by Tony Iommi‘s statement that there will be more gigs with the band.
Osbourne said that it would have been so nice to get on the stage for the last time with Bill Ward, however, he does not have any of the slightest interest in doing another show with the band, as opposed to Tony.
The End Tour was the final concert tour of the British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, featuring the founding members Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler. The tour concluded the band’s career that took over 40 years. The final show was 4 February 2017, in their home city of Birmingham, England.
Here is what Ozzy Osbourne said during the conversation when asked if he would like to play live again with the band:
“Not for me. It’s done. The only thing I do regret is not doing the last farewell show in Birmingham with [drummer] Bill Ward. I felt really bad about that.
It would have been so nice. I don’t know what the circumstances behind it were, but it would have been nice.
I’ve talked to him a few times, but I don’t have any of the slightest interest in [doing another gig]. Maybe Tony’s getting bored now.”
