According to Mirror UK, Ozzy Osbourne‘s wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, has said that the Prince of Darkness is planning two farewell shows in his hometown of Birmingham, England.
Sharon was commenting on Ozzy’s comeback on stage in London as part of their new “Cut The Crap” tour, which travels to Birmingham on Wednesday and returns to London next weekend.
“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“, Sharon said.
Seemingly suggesting that the venue could be Aston Villa’s Villa Park, she added: “We will do it in Aston Villa where Ozzy is from“:
“His voice is still absolutely perfect,” she continued. “And all the time he has been off, he still does his singing lessons, so his voice is perfect. And he can joke, yeah. 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.”
Ozzy, 75, has taken a step back from his hectic touring schedule in recent years due to his battle with Parkinson’s disease and surgery following a fall.
Last July, the Black Sabbath singer cancelled his appearance at the Power Trip festival due to ongoing physical problems.
